The Capitals got the first and last goal of the game but little went right in between. From AP-
Stephen Weiss, Bryan McCabe and Jay Bouwmeester scored power-play goals in the first period, Florida held Alex Ovechkin without a point until the final minute, and the Panthers beat the Southeast Division-leading Washington Capitals 6-2 Sunday.
McCabe finished with three assists, and Weiss had two. Florida’s other goals were scored by rookie Michael Frolik, Richard Zednik and Jassen Cullimore.
The Capitals — coming off a rousing overtime victory Saturday at Eastern Conference-leading Boston — heard boos in their own building and pulled starting goalie Jose Theodore after falling behind by three goals in the opening period.
Florida is the only NHL team to beat Washington twice at home this season. This game further proves what I said earlier this season. The Capitals goaltending leaves much to be desired. They won’t win the Stanley Cup or even make the finals if they continue to ride Jose Theodore.
The trading deadline is three days away. Your move Washington.
