Caps Lose Again

Capitals 1, Devils 3

Marty Brodeur was a brick wall. Stopping all 13 shots he faced in a period and a half of work. The Caps could not kill a penalty to save their lives and once again, it’s special teams that do them in as they drop their third preseason game in a 3-1 loss to the Devils.

Ben Clymer was the single goal scorer for the Capitals with a late goal. The Devils were 2 for 5 on the powerplay, the Caps were 0 for 8. Even though the Caps were not in the penalty box much, it was all the Devils needed.

The Capitals out shot the Devils 34 to 18. It wasn’t the lack effort on behalf the Capitals. The roar of the crowd must have been deafening from a grand total of 3200 people that were in the crowd.

Caps will stay in Hershey for a few practices before facing off against the Flyers on Tuesday.

The special teams stuff is getting frustrating, isn't it? Hopefully things will improve once the regular season starts or they'll be dead in the water.
