Clinched playoff berth!
The Caps are in the playoffs! The Caps are in the playoffs!
In other news, Alex Ovechkin scored his 50th goal. This marks the sixth time in his career he has reached this milestone. And he’s only the sixth player in NHL history to do this. Not bad.
Then, on Thursday, he scored two more goals to become the Capitals all-time franchise leader in goals scored with 472. Pretty good.
During the week the Capitals moved into 2nd place in the Metropolitan division for a brief drop of the puck. It didn’t last as the Caps fell to the pesky Senators, who would not bow out of the playoff race gracefully, in a shoot-out. The Caps made a furious three goal really to send the game into overtime and get a point for their efforts. Nice.
Now after beating the Red Wings 2-1 on Sunday, they move back into 2nd place and clinched a playoff spot. Excellent.
Two games left to decide who they play in the 1st round.
Today you can celebrate by enjoying the Washington Nationals’ Opening Day.
