You missed these right? Well we’re back after another big Washington Capitals win with the top stars of the game.

The Washington Capitals overcame a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Colorado Avalanche with three unanswered goals. Both goals were allowed in the first period and who else but Andre Burakovsky to open up the scoring?

The Caps got on the board with a power play goal from Nicklas Backstrom in the second period. They added two more in the third with Tom Wilson and T.J. Oshie each deflecting in shots to help the Caps steal another road win. Braden Holtby stood tall in net with 32 saves.

They must’ve read our story about them being among the league’s worst power play if they were able to score two power play goals. We still have to wait for Alex Ovechkin to get his 700th goal which could come either in Arizona or Las Vegas.

Holtby had a .941 save percentage last night and improved his record to 21-11-4. It was another good outing that he needed and he’s won two of his last three games.

Winning was a team effort across the board but here are the top 3 heroes from Washington’s 3-2 win over the Avalanche.
