Nothing like a spirited game from start to finish by the Caps to show just how excited these guys are to meet their new teammates, right?
Put the questions about the goaltending situation behind you; worry not about Ovechkin's continued goal-scoring drought. Because all that matters right now is that this was a huge team win tonight, with stellar performances from Olie Kolzig and Brooks Laich capping off a tremendous game for everyone in red white and blue.
...of course since the Devils are utterly useless the good guys gain no ground on the Canes, but the win does keep them on pace with Carolina which is important. Still having games in hand is also important, and the Caps can take some revenge on New Jersey for their idiocy on Friday - and they'll have some new friends to help them out.
Great game, great win, and most importantly, two points!
