Capitals Defeat Penguins in OT | Sports

By on October 14, 2011

The Washington Capitals are now 3-0 thanks to a go ahead goal from Dennis Wideman, assisted by Nicklas Backstrom in OT in a tight game against the Penguins last night. Final score was 3-2. “It is huge,” Washington defenseman Karl Alzner said of the win over the Caps’ least-favorite team. “It is not a trend that we want to start by keeping on going into overtime, but the fact that we keep coming out on top is huge. This game was an emotional roller coaster.

The Caps have the Senators next up 10/15.
