“The BOYS are back in town, BOYS are back in town...”

After a four-game road trip, the Capitals returned home to Washington tonight to host the Chicago Blackhawks.

And like that uncle you really just hate, the Caps did not offer a warm welcome. Tom Wilson got the scoring started just 54 seconds in, tapping home an easy-as-you-like dipsy-doo from Alex Ovechkin to make it 1-0 Capitals.

Then, six minutes later, Andre Burakovsky let it fly from the right circle with one second remaining on the power play, and Andre 3000 hit gold to make it 2-0 Caps after twenty minutes.

Second period ahead...
