Capitals rookie Cody Eakin is thrilled to be returning to his hometown of Winnipeg. But he's not taking anything for granted.
The NHL general managers agreed to monitor the use of a 1-3-1 defense and its affect on the game's entertainment value.
A series of mishaps -- including dropped sticks -- leads to the Capitals' 3-1 loss to the Predators in Nashville.
The goaltenders in tonights game cast a magic spell for 55 minutes, and then once that spell was broken, it made for a dramatic finish. But unfortunately for Washington, once they started the scoring, they forgot to finish the defensive effort that was so stingy for so long.
