Capitals take care of business by drubbing Panthers
Eleven players register points in 7-1 victory
Question of the Day
Jason Chimera took a blindside hit from Panthers defenseman Tyson Strachan in the second period, but the left wing managed to return. And the Caps managed not to let up.
“We were fresh off a game where we were down 3-0 in the first and we came back. I think that probably helped us that we knew it was far from over,” said goaltender Braden Holtby, who won his eight game in 11 straight starts. “We stuck with it. It’s hard to play your game in those last two periods when you have a lead, but I think we did a very good job of it.”
Oleksy said he had never been a part of a game like this. It’s rare for a team to blow an opponent out of an arena this badly.
That’s why Oates wasn’t talking about using this game as a confidence-building moving forward.
“Almost like if it happened against us where, like, we’ve got to throw the tape away,” he said. “The league’s not that easy. We’ve got to remove that. … Florida had one of those bad nights, and it’s over.”
