#CapsBruins Skate Shavings: One And Done

Caps look to make this one go to 11 as they take on the Bruins in Boston

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Washington makes its second one-game road trip of the week and the second of its two trips to Boston where it will take on the Bruins on Thursday night. The Caps eked out a 3-2 win here on Nov. 4 in the only prior meeting between the two clubs this season.

Tom Wilson scored twice for the Caps in that game in Beantown last month, sandwiching those goals around a single Alex Ovechkin marker to support Braden Holtby's 31-save efforts in the Washington nets. The two sides will meet again in Washington on Dec. 28 to close out their 2017-18 season's series.
