Caps lose on road for first time in more than a month, Malenstyn debuts, Hathaway speaks, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Life'll Kill Ya - For the first 23 games of the 2019-20 NHL season, Washington's penalty kill was a positive note, a high point in the team's success. Going into Wednesday's game with the Rangers in New York, the Caps - along with the Pittsburgh Penguins - were one of only two teams in the league that had not permitted multiple power-play goals against in any game this season.

Caps Fall to Rangers, 4-1

Caps lose in regulation on road for first time in 10 games

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Through the first quarter of the 2019-20 season, the Caps have been good at bouncing back from deficits and adversity, and they've gotten and created their fair share of bounces as well. But on Wednesday night in New York, the bounces weren't there and Washington suffered its first regulation road loss in more than a month, 4-1 to the Rangers.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK - Caps 5, Ducks 2

Caps put together second straight stellar effort, Holtby and Carlson keep rolling, Stephenson's "quiet" goal, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Strictly Business - From well before the first shift of Monday night's game with the Anaheim Ducks, the Caps were dialed in as to what they needed to do on the ice. Washington's previous home game - a 5-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night - was one of the team's few substandard performances of the season to date, and the Caps followed it up with a much stronger team effort on Saturday night in Boston.

Caps Down Ducks, 5-2

Caps' business-like win over Anaheim is overshadowed by a wild brawl with possible suspension implications for Washington

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Monday night's game between the Caps and the visiting Anaheim Ducks turned into quite the wild affair at the big barn on F St. The Caps continued their winning ways with a convincing 5-2 victory, but in the wake of a genuine all out brawl late in the second period, they've also got a player - right wing Garnet Hathaway - who was assessed a match penalty for spitting on an opponent, meaning he is "… automatically suspended from further competition until the Commissioner has ruled on the issue," according to Rule 21.2 regarding match penalties.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Caps 3, Bruins 2 (SO)

Vrana shootout goal, Oshie 6-on-5 strike and strong Holtby outing enable Caps to overcome Halak and B's, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Shoot Out The Lights - Throughout the entirety of their 2018-19 schedule, the Capitals only had five of 82 games go to the shootout, and they went beyond overtime only once in their final 50 contests of the campaign. Thus far this season, however, the shootout has been a more frequent occurrence.

Caps Rally for 3-2 Shootout Win vs. B's

Oshie's late goal with extra attacker and Vrana's shootout stunner lead Caps to fifth straight road win, all in OT or SO

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

For most of the 65 minutes of hockey the Caps and Bruins played in Boston on Saturday night, it appeared as though one of Washington's top overall teasm efforts of the season might go unrewarded. Boston netminder Jaroslav Halak was in a zone - or perhaps a time machine, to a few Caps whose tenure goes back to the netminder's days with Montreal - and he was setting virtually all the offensive chances the Caps were able to muster. Halak finished the night with 42 saves.
