Tuesday in Newark with the Capitals and Devils. FiCP was there to bring some live coverage of the game.
The Capitals charged forward to secure another win. The Devils initially seemed to know how to play the Caps, probably knocking them a little off balance with a last-second goal at the end of the first period. By the second period the Capitals had improved their shooting and scoring power as they took a strong lead against the Devils. End of the third period and the Capitals would be successful securing the win! The Caps have now taken three of the four matches against the Devils.

We predicted a bridge contract was most likely for DSP or a trade to take advantage of his playoff performance. Barring that, we expected the Caps to skip the qualifying offer and let him test the waters, again.
Indeed the Caps did not initially tender him an offer sheet as a restricted free agent which meant he was free to talk to other teams. Rumor is he did talk to others but wanted to remain with the Capitals, for a cool million and one more year. Can you blame him???
it was a good night in DC at the Capital One Arena. The Capitals we love came back to play the kind of game we get excited about. They took and kept the lead, ending with a win of 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils. ANNNDDDDD the lead in the Metro Division.
Tom Wilson moved to the third line and Devante Smith-Pelly stayed on the top line. Andre Burakovsky was a healthy scratch, probably because he is under-performing again, along with Madison Bowey. Chandler Stephenson was back after illness. The starting lineup:
Ovechkin Backstrom Smith-Pelly
Vrana Kuznetsov Oshie
Connolly Eller Wilson
Stephenson Beagle Chaisson
He played well tonight – no surprise. He had one assist on the Devil’s first goal.
The Caps acknowledged his time with the team, and we wiped away a tear ’cause we still miss him, and his dad Lars. We will never forget the kindness shown by Marcus and his entire family and watching playoff games at Front Page with the Swedes…
Time to move on now…but he will always have a special place in our hearts.
