Caps Blank the Habs


The Caps shut down the Habs on Wednesday night and silenced the fans at Bell Centre by shutting out the home team by the score of 3-0. After losing 3-0 at home on Tuesday night, the Caps quickly rebounded and won 3-0 last night. The Caps killed an astounding 7 seven penalties, of which included a questionable triple minor. The Caps scored the only power play goal of the night when Ovechkin sent Carey Price a nice little gift. The Caps were 1/4 on the powerplay for the night.
Neuvirth made his first start in 10 games. He had only played one period in those 10 games. Some wondered if he would be rusty, but Neuvy quickly sent the doubters packing by earning a shut out. He is now 6-7-2 on the season with a 3.02 GAA and a 89.4% save percentage.
Note: Alex Semin picked up his 14th point in 14 games. He has heated up. Mathieu Perreault scored his first goal since the end of October. Neuvirth earned his second shut out of the season and the sixth of his career. Matt Hendricks beat up Bourque for his hit on Backstrom a few weeks back.
