Hawks Humble Caps, 7-1

The struggling Blackhawks get well at Washington's expense, rolling to an easy 7-1 win over the Caps on Saturday night in Chicago

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

The Capitals' Jekyll and Hyde persona was on display again on Saturday night in Chicago. Two nights after authoring a convincing 5-2 road win over the Minnesota Wild - which had been the league's hottest team on home ice for the previous month and a half - the Caps came into Chicago to face a last-place Blackhawks team saddled with an eight-game losing streak (0-7-1) and a seven-game slide (0-6-1) on home ice.

#CapsJets Postgame Notebook: Power Failure

Caps can't close out Jets, lose late lead and game in overtime loss; Bowey and Byfuglien both fined different "maximums," more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Tuesday's game against the Jets at Winnipeg's Bell MTS Place was there for the taking for the Capitals. After yielding the game's first goal late in the first frame, the Caps methodically and gradually built up a 3-1 lead just ahead of the midpoint of the third period, getting three five-on-five goals from three different lines. 

But the Caps couldn't close the deal. Winnipeg scored three unanswered goals in the final 11 minutes and 5 seconds of play, forcing Washington to settle for a single point in a 4-3 overtime loss.

Caps Can't Close, Lose 4-3 to Jets in OT

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Since Barry Trotz took over the reins behind the Caps bench at the outset of the 2014-15 season, the Caps have been good at locking down late leads. But on Tuesday night in Winnipeg, the Caps let loose of a 3-1 lead in the back half of the third period, as three unanswered Jets goals in a span of 11 minutes and 5 seconds left Washington on the wrong end of a 4-3 overtime decision.
