Caps Insider: After ‘eye-opener’ in last meeting with St. Louis, Capitals anticipate rematch

MONTREAL — More than two months ago, at the first stop of their three-city tour through the Western Conference, the Washington Capitals left St. Louis feeling pantsed, flogged and embarrassed. Coming off a narrow home loss to the New Jersey Devils, decided when goaltender Braden Holtby misplayed a puck behind the net, they were trucked from Scottrade Center and, many agreed later, given an up-close lesson for what they hoped to become.Read full article >>

Instant analysis: Caps lose heartbreaker

Goaltenders Braden Holtby and Carey Price were outstanding, but the Caps' struggles in overtime continued.

Carey Price stifles Capitals once again as Canadiens win in overtime, 1-0

MONTREAL – The Washington Capitals spent all Saturday afternoon trying to crack the vexing puzzle stationed in the opposite net, and were turned away with each attempt.
