Capitals vs. Predators Third Period Thread

NHL: Washington Capitals at Nashville Predators Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

It looked like the Caps were picking things up during the second, even after Viktor Arvidsson scored his second goal of the game just 81 seconds in. Nicklas Backstrom netted a power play goal, and they were rolling into their second man-advantage of the night when Arvidsson scored his third goal on the night. The hats rained down, and the Capitals’ momentum deflated. Nashville added insult to injury with a Rocco Grimaldi highlight-reel tally and Nick Bonino’s second of the night, extending their lead to 6-1 after 40.

Maybe the Tom Wilson-Auston Watson tussle towards the end of the period will kick Washington back into gear, third period ahead...
