Caps Beat Hurricanes 5-0
The Capitals have now scored 5 or more goals in the last 10 home games. Over the past 2 games they have outscored their opponents 10-0. The first goal of the night came from Ovechkin on a power play midway through the 1st. Connolly who has been playing well lately scored the 2nd goal 3 minutes later. The second period went scoreless, but the 3rd period brought 3 more caps goals.
Eller and Kuznetsov both scored 27 seconds apart from each other to put the game out of reach. Johansson scored the Caps 5th goal on a power play later in the 3rd. The Capitals will look to extend their home streak when they host the Red Wings Thursday night.
