Oates: Caps had to "close the door" against NY
The Capitals have struggled to win in regulation this season, but you wouldn't know it watching them over the weekend.
The Caps won back-to-back games with a 5-2 over Nashville at home on Saturday and a 4-1 win against the Rangers in Madison Square Garden Sunday night. The Caps were able to build demanding leads in both games allowing them to cruise to victory.
Two regulation wins must feel like a vacation to the cardiac-Caps. "We haven't had that luxury so we enjoy it," said coach Adam Oates.
