The lead singer of Matchbox Twenty opened scoring on the evening, but that lead proved Sick as Alex Ovechkin scored his thirtieth of the season to bring issues Abet 2 Unbiased. Brett Connolly gave the Caps their first lead and acknowledged lead would evaporate after targets from Colton Parayko and Oskar Sundqvist. Alex Pietrangelo and Tyler Bozak added to the shellacking.
Blues beat Caps 5-2.
- Alex Ovechkinscored tonight, something he hasn’t done in his earlier six games. I wrote this bullet ahead of the sport even began. I would possibly withhold it in despite the indisputable truth that he doesn’t earn to gain the shame I deserve. Yo, he in actuality scored. Whew. The Substantial Eight has now tallied 30 targets in a season for 14 straight seasons to launch his profession, joiningMike Gartneras essentially the most productive one to build so. GOAT.
- One more bullet I would possibly write ahead of puck fall.Tom Wilsongoes to fight tonight because he has to “resolution” for his preseason hit. Hockey man build wicked hit, hockey man should always pay for wicked hit by punching other hockey man. Two for 2, guys and gals. A normal Nostradamus.
- The first quarter-hour of the first duration regarded treasure the Caps were bird-boxing themselves and playing blindfolded. Convey it or now not although, I judge what they did in the closing five or so minutes used to be better than anything else the Blues did in the first 15. Unbiased response to a wicked launch.

- There used to be all this pregame talk in regards to the Blues getting the all superstar sport in 2020 and I was so perplexed why they were saying that so early till I realized that, that is next yr. That’s gonna set up some getting broken-all the trend down to.

- Of us, I’m terrified about how the Caps play defensively withEvgeny Kuznetsovon the ice. In my honest concept, Kuzy has yet to hit his scamper in actuality at all this season and I judge numerous those disorders launch along with his effort in the defensive zone translating to less time with the puck in the offensive zone where he’s magic. I judge there’s a hell of numerous floating and staring at in the D zone overall among the many Caps high 9 forwards of gradual.
- I leave outChristian Djoos.
- Braden Holtbywasn’t huge tonight, but dude had actually no succor. Group defense used to be totally piss unhappy.
- Were the Caps on the ice for the third duration? What a joke of an effort. Time for some ole long-established hair dryer remedy from the coaches.
- I felt treasureMichal Kempnyhad a honest evening, which used to be very rare for Caps gamers. Two assists and some heady offensive instincts all sport. Restful gonna harp on him being absolute set up metropolis. Thanks, Coach Q.
