Capitals blow first-period lead, lose to Senators
The Washington Capitals found a way to tie a back-and-forth game with 3:27 left against Ottawa on Wednesday night.
Bobby Ryan scored two goals and the Senators topped the Capitals 6-4.
“The big test for us was when they tied the game. We didn’t handle momentum swings very well in the first period or in some previous games,” said Ottawa coach Paul MacLean, whose team has dropped four of five coming in.
“Obviously a huge two points for us tonight,” Phillips said. “We need to build off this momentum and keep it going. We look at the standings and we’re not in a great spot right now. We need to get on a bit of a roll.”
It was Ottawa’s first win in regulation at the Verizon Center since March 12, 2006.
“We played a solid game (losing Saturday) in Toronto; we played lousy tonight,” Capitals coach Adam Oates said. “Not good decisions. We get a lead and we still don’t do the right things.”
Trailing 3-1 after one period, Ottawa tied it in the second as it outshot the Capitals 19-3.
“A lot of angry guys in here,” Anderson said of the Ottawa locker room after the first 20 minutes.
