#CapsBolts Postgame Notebook: Flawed First

Flawed first undoes Caps in loss to Bolts as Washington loses for the sixth time in its last eight home games, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / http://www.washingtoncapitals.com

Flawed First - Failure to play at a consistent level over the game's entire 60 minutes has been an occasionally recurring theme for the Washington Capitals this season, and of late. It cost them points in overtime losses to Detroit and at Winnipeg earlier in the month, and cropped up here and there earlier in the season as well.

Playing an 82-game schedule spread over six months is grueling and challenging, and there are going to be nights where success seems unlikely. After coming home from their longest road trip of the season on Monday night, the Caps found themselves right back in action on Tuesday, hosting the Eastern Conference's top team - the Tampa Bay Lightning - at Capital One Arena.

Bolts Beat Caps, 4-2

A three-goal first-period ditch proves to be too much for the Caps to overcome against one of the Eastern Conference's elite teams

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Almost two months ago in Las Vegas against the Golden Knights, the Capitals dug themselves a three-goal first-period hole against one of the league's top teams, and they did it while playing their second game in as many nights, when their collective energy stores weren't likely to be at peak levels.

#CapsSabres Postgame Notebook: Getting Right

Caps get back in win column in Buffalo finishing the season long road trip with a 2-1-1 record

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Washington played a strong first 40 minutes against the Sabres in Buffalo on Monday afternoon, forging a 2-0 lead to take into the third period. There were some white-knuckle moments in the third as the Caps likely sat back a bit more than they intended, but Washington ultimately skated off with a 3-2 win over the Sabres. 

Coming in the wake of an ugly 7-1 thumping at the hands of the Blackhawks in Chicago on Saturday night, the Caps' win over the Sabres was a good response and a strong bounce back performance.

The Caps bounce back with a win in the finale of their four-game road trip on Monday afternoon in Buffalo

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Less than 48 hours after a 7-1 humbling at the hands of the Blackhawks in Chicago, the Caps put a happy coda on their season-long four-game road trip with a 3-2 victory over the Sabres in Buffalo on Monday afternoon.

Caps coach Barry Trotz and his charges were seeking a bounce back effort from Saturday' debacle in the Windy City, and they got it, though things did get a little treacherous for the Capitals in the third period.
