Capitals Finally Win

By Jesse Jones

The Washington Capitals were on an eight game losing streak, the longest under coach Bruce Boudreau.  During the streak, the Caps were never outshot, and seemed to have been giving up goals easily.  There was some speculation that if the team kept losing, Boudreau would be fired, despite the fact that the team had won three straight division titles, and was the number one overall seed in the playoffs last year.

One day after a crushing defeat in Boston, the Caps traveled further north to Ottawa to face the Senators.  Things seemed like they were going to remain the same, as the Caps fell into an early 2-0 hole after the first period.  After that, it seemed like the Caps were back.  They scored three goals in the second period, two by Mathieu Perreault, and another by Eric Fehr, and held the Senators scoreless for the rest of the game to win 3-2.

The losing streak was over.

The losing streak has dropped the Caps into third in the division, behind Atlanta and Tampa Bay, and sixth in the conference.  Washington will look to get on track and bounce back to the top of the conference where they belong, starting tonight, as they try to win their second straight game, hosting the New Jersey Devils, a team that beat them 7-0 during the losing streak.  After that, the team will host Pittsburgh Thursday.
