It only took 54 minutes before the Washington Capitals would get on the board during the Cap-Wings game on Friday night. Neither team had a great night. It would end with Braden Holtby, a shutout, and three players sitting in the locker room nursing injuries.
We start with old friend Mike Green (25) who had a few moments with Alex Ovechkin. After the game Mike even met with some friends from his days as a Cap’s player.
Tom Wilson, TJ Oshie, Lars Eller, and Andre Burakovsky all went down the tunnel before the end of the second period. Wilson returned. Oshie and Eller are out for a bit. Burakovsky skated at practice on Saturday and looked to be ok.
There was only one goal and that’s all that we really needed. Jay Beagle saved the day!!
Here are the rest of our shots from the game.
First the Caps:
And a little gallery for Red Wings fans…
All Hail the HOLTBEAST and his first shutout this year!
