Caps lose 2-0 to Predators

The Capitals were thrilled to get a sellout crowd of 11,082 at 1st Mariner Arena on Tuesday night for the Baltimore Hockey Classic. But in terms of the on-ice action, that many people packed into a building built in 1962 didn’t help. The ice was slippery and there were visible puddles all over the rink, with conditions slowing down play to a crawl for much of the Caps’ 2-0 loss to the Nashville Predators.
