Back at home in the District on Thanksgiving Eve the Capitals stuffed the visiting Montreal Canadiens in a 6 to 3 home ice victory. Pass the gravy.
Here’s Wednesday night’s Plus/Minus:
Plus: Michael Sgarbossa tallied his first goal with the Capitals and first NHL goal in over four years.
Minus: The NHL should standardize goal review announcements (and the entire process) with their referees.
Nine more notes on the game:
- Less than four minutes into the contest Nic Dowd took the puck around Montreal’s defense and the net before slipping a backhanded wrap into the net.
