Caps Get That Predatory Feeling

The Washington Capitals celebrated Mike Knuble’s 1,000th NHL game in style by lighting up the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-1 including goals by each of the three Young Guns playing in the game. The goals mostly came the old fashioned way…well old fashioned in the 2009 sense of pure offensive prowess. The difference being that it was matched with sound defensive play and solid goaltending. The lone Predators goal coming off one of the few Capitals mistakes. The sole sore spot, if there was one, was that it with it being Knuble’s 1,000th game, it would have been nice to seem him get a little more than the 10 minutes, seven seconds of ice time he got. On the other hand, Alex Ovechkin barely broke 15 minutes.
