Rangers Nip Caps, 2-1

Zuccarello's goal in the third is the difference as the Caps fall for the second time in as many days.

A weekend of back-to-back road games in difficult barns is never an appetizing situation for an NHL team, and that's even less true when both games are in the afternoon and the set of contests comes in the immediate aftermath of a week away from the ice. 

This weekend, NHL schedule makers were able to do what the rest of the NHL has been unable to accomplish over the last two-plus months - to cool off the Capitals.

Sanford's First Extends Caps' Streaks

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Zach Sanford made his NHL debut with the Caps in Pittsburgh nearly four months ago, so he's had plenty of time to think about what it might be like to score his first goal in the league.

On Saturday night at Verizon Center, he got to feel what it was like.

This One Goes to Eleven

Caps down Detroit 6-3 for their 11th consecutive victory on home ice.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Over the last few seasons, games between the Capitals and the Detroit Red Wings have been low-scoring and close contests. None of the last six meetings between the two teams featured a combined total of more than four goals.

It was somewhat surprising to see the two sides combine for four goals in the first frame alone on Thursday night at Verizon Center, and in the end, the Caps and Wings combined for nine goals, or as many as they had combined to score in their previous four meetings.
