Caps Bounce Back with 5-2 Win Over Avs

Five different Caps find the back of the net and Holtby stops 22 for his 17th win of the season as Washington downs Colorado

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

On Monday night in Brooklyn, the Caps turned in a subpar performance that resulted in a 3-1 loss and the end of a four-game Washington winning streak. A night later Washington took the ice against the Colorado Avalanche, a team that destroyed the Caps in Denver last month, 6-2. 

Seeking a strong bounce-back effort on both of those counts, the Caps were successful. They downed the Avs by a 5-2 score on Tuesday night at Capital One Arena to earn their 12th win in their last 14 home games.

#CapsAvs Skate Shavings: Quick Stop

Caps come home to host Avs, hope to put forth better effort and performance than they managed against Avs last month in Denver

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Washington went 8-2-0 over a recent 10-game stretch in which it played nine of those 10 games at home, but this week's schedule brings some travel into the Caps' world. They spent Monday night in Brooklyn, where their four-game winning streak came to a stop at the hands of the New York Islanders. 

Tuesday night finds the Caps right back home to host the Colorado Avalanche, and Washington will take to the road again on Wednesday, heading to Boston where it will face the Bruins on Thursday. The week concludes for the Caps with one more home game, on Saturday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

Washington had a pair of four-game winning streaks snapped on Monday night in Brooklyn at the hands of the New York Islanders. The Caps carried a four-game winning streak into Monday's game, and the 3-1 loss they suffered to New York obviously put the brakes on that winning run.

#CapsIsles Skate Shavings: Back To The Road

No skate for the Caps ahead of Monday's match against the Isles in Brooklyn, but here are news and notes related to the game

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Just under a month ago, the Capitals embarked upon a critical stretch of scheduling in which they'd play nine of 10 games on home ice, sleeping in their own beds for 23 of 24 nights during that span. They've come through that stretch as well or better than could have been expected - posting an 8-2 record while facing some formidable foes - but new challenges are just ahead, as is always the case in the NHL.

Two nights after its first-period flurry of goals helped do in the Chicago Blackhawks, Washington's top forward line combined for a pair of quick tallies late in the game to help the Caps take a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers. 

Matt Niskanen broke a 2-2 tie with his first goal of the season at 16:28 of the third period on Friday at Capital One Arena, a goal that was started and set up by the tenacity of Tom Wilson.

The Caps and Rangers meet for the first time this season on Friday night at Capital One Arena. Both teams are coming in hot - both have won four of five, six of seven, and seven of 10. Since the start of November, the Capitals are 12-5-0 while the Rangers are 11-3-0. 

"They're a good team and we've had our battles with them in the past," says Caps defenseman Matt Niskanen. "I think everyone is looking forward to keeping up our quality of play, and if we do, we have a real good shot at beating them."
