The Caps did something on Thursday they haven't done much this season: they lost. Alan May joined SportsTalk Live to talk about what went wrong in Carolina.
The Caps came into Carolina as winners of nine-straight. That streak ended on Thursday night as the Caps fell 4-2 to the Hurricanes.
Post-game analysis of the Capitals’ 4-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night at RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C.:
Eric Staal thought he had the go-ahead goal and Philipp Grubauer thought he had the save of the year. Unfortunately for Caps fans, replay sided with Staal.
That didn't take long. After going down 1-0 in the second, Nicklas Backstrom responded for the Caps with one heck of a wrist shot.
