POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Coyotes 4, Caps 1

Caps' offense continues to be off and they let an opportunity slip, dropping a second straight game at the end of homestand, penalty kill continues to be problematic, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Opportunity Knocks Once, Then The Door Slams Shut - Heading into Sunday's finale of their five-game homestand against the Arizona Coyotes, the Caps had an opportunity to take a couple of points from a road weary team, a team playing on the shortest turnaround - just 22 hours - allowed by the NHL's collective bargaining agreement. It was also an opportunity for the Caps to finish the homestand on a winning and high note; a win would leave them at 3-1-1 for the homestand while a regulation loss would leave a decidedly less appealing 2-2-1 mark to show for those five games in the District.

Caps Fall to Columbus, 2-1

Caps lose special teams battle and game as three-game point streak comes to a halt on Friday vs. the Blue Jackets

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Playing with a patchwork blueline against one of the league's most aggressive forechecking teams on Friday night, the Caps figured to have their hands full against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Washington's youthful blueline acquitted itself well and gave the Jackets nothing at five-on-five, but on a night where it was all about special teams, the Caps were shorthanded personnel-wise and came up short on the scoreboard, 2-1.
