Caps Beat Red Wings 6-0
Although the Caps limited the Red Wings to only 6 shots in the 1st period the score would be tied 2-2 heading into the 2nd period. Marcus Johansson scored the Caps first goal, but two goals by Athanasiou gave Detroit a 2-1 lead.
The Caps second goal would come from Connolly who just seems to play good every night. Oshie scored the lone goal in the 2nd period to take a 3-2 lead with one period left.
The Caps would tally 3 more goals in the 3rd period by Carlson, Oshie, and Backstrom. The Caps Streak of 5 plus goals at home continues. Their next matchup is against the Ducks Saturday night.
