After falling in a devastating loss to the Edmonton Oilers - their third straight - Caps' head coach Barry Trotz issued a warning to his team.
The Capitals looked like the better team for most of the night Tuesday, but their inability to stay out of the box cost them against the Oilers.
The Capitals had a two-goal lead late in the third period, but it wasn't enough as the Oilers shocked them in a shootout for Washington's third straight loss.
Alex Ovechkin's second goal of the first period on Tuesday night smashed the glass covering of CSN's in-net camera.
This week's installment of Capitals Top Five Plays of the Week includes a beauty of a one-timer by Ovechkin and a crushing hit by Niskanen.
