Game Recap – 2/12/2019 – Washington Capitals v. Columbus Blue Jackets

Washington Capitals (31-18-7 69pts) v. Columbus Blue Jackets (31-20-3 65pts)

 

Game Recap:

The Washington Capitals would come out flat against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and put themselves into penalty trouble as the Blue Jackets dominated the Capitals in the first period. However, Braden Holtby would hold down the fort and keep this a 0-0 game.

 

In another lackluster period for the Capitals, the Blue Jackets would get the lone goal on a 3 on 1 break against the Capitals with Anthony Duclair scoring his 11th of the season. Capitals would be dominated in almost every aspect of the game. Blue Jackets through 40 minutes have held the Capitals to 7 shots and 9 faceoff wins.

 

The Capitals would play a better third period, but Sergei Bobrovsky would be lights out as he would shut out the Capitals surge, and the Blue Jackets would get goals from Nick Foligno and Artemi Panarin to seal the deal for the Blue Jackets.
