Stay Out of the Box

A loss last night against the Rangers, 2-1. Read this article about our woes in not being able to stay out of the penalty box. The game last night was hard fought and felt a bit like a playoff game where special teams play makes all of the difference. The Rangers scored quickly on their big opportunity and then the Caps didn't answer on theirs, and that was the difference in this game.

We don't have a lot of time to recover as we get right back at it a bunch of times this week - all capped off by a Saturday matinee on national TV at home at Verizon Center. Lots of coverage of the game here, here, and here.
