Sunday Roundup/Caps 2, 'Canes 0

[AP Recap - Boxscore - Super Stats - Postgame]

I'll leave the recap of last night's game to the pros (Tarik and Corey), but would point out that through two games, the penalty kill is now 8-for-8, the Caps have outshot opponents 73-52 and won 51% of their faceoffs. The team goals against average is 0.50 and the save percentage is .981. And here's your individual stat line of the night:
Alex Ovechkin: Game-winning goal, +1, 6 shots on goal, 4 hits, 3 takeaways, 0 giveaways, 3 blocked shots
All in all, a very encouraging opening weekend that can only be an indication of even better things to come.
