Flames Overpower Caps, 4-1

Four unanswered goals - including two on the power play and one just after a power play expired - help Calgary to 4-1 win over Caps in Washington

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Although the Capitals' penalty killing percentage is not in the lofty reaches of the mid- to upper-80s where it was for much of last season, the shorthanded outfit has helped deliver several of the team's recent victories with clutch kills with Washington protecting a lead and with the game on the line. 

But just as they've lived by the kill of late, the Caps died by the kill on Monday against the Calgary Flames at Capital One Arena.

#CapsWild Postgame Notebook: No Passengers

No passengers for Caps as they rebound from disappointing road trip with impressive win over Wild

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Coming home from a pair of subpar road performances in Nashville and Colorado earlier in the week, the Caps opened up a four-game homestand against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. The Capitals were in need of some standings points, to be sure, but they were also in need of a good start and a strong and consistent 60-minute effort with everyone pulling on the rope, and pulling in the right direction. 

After Saturday's morning skate, Caps coach Barry Trotz challenged his top players to play like top players.
