The Washington capitals returned from their long time of travel to many tropical destinations. They were greeted by the Calgary Flames in snowy, cold Washington, DC. Could the guys stop their seven-game defeat or move closer to Tom Riddle?
Nic Dowd took the lead after just three minutes with a defensive strike against Mike Smith. Mikael Backlund would respond to the Flames with a very nice individual effort to tie things together in one piece. Dmitrij Jaskin did not let this draw last long when his second goal of the season before the first break horn restored the caps.
Tom Wilson scored a goal early in the second second, giving the caps a two-goal lead previously. Garnet Hathaway would only react a moment later to halve the lead. The caps decided to see the Flames in the middle of the third game.
Evgeny Kuznetsov comes to a close to finish the series. Thank you, Kuzy.
Caps beat Flames 4-3!
- First things first, welcome back, errybody! Can you believe that we are already preparing for the last relegation this season?
- I liked Caps's efforts in the first period, and it felt as if Mike Smith had saved the flames out of the flame more than a few times. To get ahead of the field was a great first step in breaking that record.
- Dmitrij Jaskin and Nic Dowd really must stop being the first choice for a healthy scratch at the caps frontend.

- A Patrick Holden brought his thoughts together in the makeshift top line of tonight's tweet, "Whenever you can skate with a foreign NHL player Nicklas Backstrom and TJ Oshie you must do it. This trio was statistically the worst, and I barely noticed that they even play. The only cap on the ice for two Calgary 5: 5 goals was the young Chandler Stephenson .
- The second section was another good one of the caps, if you simply ignore the fact that they have struck on three straight power play opportunities. The man advantage "did not look bad", but its ineffectiveness kills this team absolutely.
- The Flames scored in the second half what I thought was the 509th quick response goal the Capitals allowed during this defeat. The time immediately after a caps goal must be tightened very much.
- What did you do in your All-Star game / bye week break? I played a lot of NCAA Football 14 on the PS3. You really need to restore these games.

- The third period was a period and the only thing that matters is that the caps have won.
- Some bad news within the forward corps. Lars Eller left the game at 5:52 am in the second half and the caps announced during the second break that he would not return due to a lower body injury.
- This was the first game The Caps played without Alex Ovechkin since April 10, 2016. The NHL suspended the suspension of skipping the All-Star Game and broke Ovis' longest series of games in its Career (214).
- Remember when ] James Neal missed a wide net against the caps last season in the Stanley Cup final? Good times.
- Praise, Evgeny.
#JoeBSuitOfTheNight #CapsFlames Navy blue to end the defeat pic.twitter.com/PxtMKRDZYH  Ian Oland (@ianoland) February 2, 2019  The captain returns with his buddies against the Boston Bruins on Sunday for matinee match. Is there a better way to get the guys to roll than to play their normal punching bag in the Bruins?
