Analysis: The Caps sleepwalked through the first 40 minutes allowing the Golden Knights to dictate the game. Vegas took advantage of it though jumping out to a three-goal lead. Washington woke up in the 3rd scoring twice but the VGK response defensively was excellent. It wasn’t the prettiest game in the world, but it’s a third straight win and a good one.

  1. Trade deadline

    Fleury is finally starting to look more like his old self lately. He is getting fewer shots thanks to better 5-on-5 defensive play.

    But the PK still is deep in the league’s bottom third

    They need to acquire a good defensive forward, who can kill penalties….. and can be used to protect a one goal lead late in games.

    and a dman who can handle the puck and play on the PK and PP, like maybe Martinez.

    If Eakin is still on this team after the deadline, I will be furious. He is garbage, slow and small, poor on the PK, and worst of all, he is not even giving a decent effort in a contract year. that is puzzling and unacceptable. He won’t be back anyway, so why keep his loafing ass around??

  2. They continue to demonstrate they cannot sit on a lead and their pk certainly leaves alot to be desired again. Great win and lucky it turned out that way. On ward and upward.
