POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Caps 3, Flyers 1

Holtby shuts down Flyers' last gasp, Wilson strikes first for third time in four games against Philly, Caps sweep Flyers, never trailing in any game, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Fort Holtby - Caps goalie Braden Holtby came within a whisker of a shutout in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Flyers, but the win and the two points was all that mattered to he and the Capitals. The Caps took a 1-0 lead into the second period, but a desperate Philadelphia team came up against its playoff mortality; the Flyers emptied their tank on the Capital One Center ice sheet in that middle period, drawing three penalties and pumping 20 shots on Holtby.

Caps Sweep Up Flyers, 3-1

Holtby stops 35 to lead Caps to their third win over the Flyers in 19 days this month

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

From the beginning of Washington's NHL existence in 1974-75, it took six years for the Caps to be able to beat the Philadelphia Flyers; the Capitals went 0-19-6 before finally earning their first victory over the Flyers. So there was certainly some satisfaction in Washington's 3-1 win over Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Wild 2, Caps 1

Caps miss a chance to add distance between themselves and pursuers, Wild stymies Washington's top six, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Missed Opportunity - The Caps were the only Eastern Conference team in action on Friday night, and as such, they had a chance to stick a psychological dagger into the teams in hot pursuit of them in the Metropolitan Division standings. A win would have increased their lead over the New York Islanders to five points with two weeks remaining in the season, and even a single point would have been welcome as all points are precious at this stage of the season.

Wild Edges Caps, 2-1

Caps can't match desperation of the Wild, which ends an eight-game slide against Washington

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

When home gets to be a drag, sometimes the road can be just the remedy. Such was the case for the Minnesota Wild on Friday night at Capital One Arena. Desperate for standings points and coming off an underwhelming 1-3-1 homestand - the team's longest of the season - the Wild started a two-game road tour with a 2-1 win over Washington.

Caps Without Kempny Indefinitely

With the top four defenseman out, the Caps are fortunate to have Christian Djoos on hand and ready to step in

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

When the Caps acquired defenseman Michal Kempny in a seemingly minor trade with Chicago in February of 2018, they didn't see him as a savior or the significant piece to the puzzle that he turned out to be in Washington. Once he got acclimated and was placed on the left side of a pairing with John Carlson last spring, everything meshed with that duo and the remainder of the team's defense corps.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

How The West Was Won - The Caps conclude the 30-game portion of their schedule against Western Conference opposition on Friday night when the Minnesota Wild makes its lone trip to town this season. The Caps enter the contest with a 15-11-3 mark against the opposite conference this season, so they need a victory over the Wild to win more than half of their games against the west.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

High Powered - Four nights after they finally met for the first time in 2018-19 in Tampa, the Caps and the Tampa Bay Lightning hooked up again in Washington, and the two teams delivered a rollicking good hockey game, exceeding the exciting contest they played in Florida on Saturday.
