#CapsLeafs Postgame Notebook: Broken Home

Caps lose consecutive home games in regulation for the first time in more than two and a half years

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

The Caps have been a fairly dominant team at their big barn on F St. over the years, limiting losses to a single digit total in eight of their seasons here, including each of the last two. But on Tuesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, they suffered a fate that hasn't befallen them in more than two and a half years.

Caps Draw a Blank vs. Leafs, Fall 2-0

Two high-octane attacks generate little in the way of offensive firepower, but Leafs win on Brown's third-period goal and Andersen's 30 stops

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Those headed to Capital One Arena for Tuesday night's tilt between the Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs likely had visions of a barnburner dancing in their heads. Not quite two weeks into the 2017-18 regular season, these were two of the NHL's most offensively prolific teams. They were also two of the most defensively challenged teams in the early going. The last time they hooked up here in Washington during the regular season, the Caps managed a 6-5 overtime victory.

#CapsFlyers Postgame Notebook: It's Not Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Caps are left with third loss in four games (1-2-1) after sound Saturday night drubbing in Philadelphia

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Over his first three seasons with the Capitals, Matt Niskanen missed a total of four games, all of them last season. During that span, whichever pairing Niskanen was on was generally the Caps' top pairing, and if not, it was certainly the team's second best. But Niskanen suffered an upper body injury on Friday in New Jersey, an ailment that has landed him on long-term injured reserve.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

It had been quite a while since the Capitals lost a game by as many as six goals, and it had been even longer since they had surrendered as many as eight goals over the course of a 60-minute game. But the Caps managed both of those ignominious feats on Saturday night at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, taking an 8-2 drubbing at the hands of the Flyers.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network
