Capitals 0, Predators 3
It wasn't pretty, but it is preseason. The Caps get shut out in their final preseason game keeping them from being undefeated before the games count for real. It would be some miscues on special teams that would do the Caps in as the game wore down in the third period.
Predators' Joel Ward would give the Caps fits in the third as he scored shorthanded early in the third, then under 5 minutes later he would score again just as the home team's penalty kill finished up a double minor by Brian Fahey.
The Caps finish the preseason (finally) with a 5-1 record. Great, all done. Bring on the regular season.
