Can't win every game and the Washington Capitals know that

The Washington Capitals fell to the Colorado Avalanche which boasts a high flying offense. That offense was on display from start to finish and the Caps simply couldn't keep up in a 6-3 setback. Thankfully there isn't any games until Saturday we need a rest from all that crazyness of these last seven days.

Next game is Saturday night in Montreal. No I have no idea who's getting traded.

But up until the third period the game was bonkers. What started out was what looked like a total Avalanche but after Ross Colton struck at 2:46 and Devon Toews doubled it at 4:57.

But the Caps answered quick because maybe they aren't ready to throw in the towel yet. At least that's what it sounded like on the postgame show. Beck Malenstyn had Martin Fehervary and Nick Jensen set him up for his fifth goal of the season at 9:16.

Connor McMichael broke his scoring slump to tie it at the 10 minute mark and Anthony Mantha had the good apple there. Then in the second period it was Aturi Lehkonen at 8:50 and Miko Rantanen at 17:03 on the power play.

In the third period Alex Ovechkin scored on the power play just like how we drew it up. John Carlsona and Anthony Mantha assisted there. Yes it was a PPG to vault him to now 58 from tying the great one.

Artturi Lehkonen at 19:01. Miles Wood at 19:27. Both empty nets sealed this one. Another one literally bit the dust. But this time the Caps came away with zero points and not one point.

Let's not talk more about this game and instead shoutout former Capitals prospect and Aussie stud Nathan Walker for laying out Ryan Reaves. Yes the Blues lost to the Maple Leafs but hey that was cool.
