Anytime the Capitals beat an actual Canadian team (like say, Montreal) at Canada’s own sport (no, not Maple Sugaring), that deserves a perfect A+ grade.
It makes zero difference that 13 of the Capitals’ players are from Canada, including both goalies.
Well, that didn’t happen. The Caps lost in overtime, 1-0, to the Canadiens on Saturday, and then lost another heartbreaker on Sunday to the Blues, pretty much ensuring the worst way to start the 2nd half of the season. Silver lining, they did get one point for the OT loss.
There’s always next week.
