Capitals Vs. Hurricanes: Washington Continues To Fall, Loses 5-0 To Carolina

The Caps put together another embarrassing performance in a 5-0 loss to the Hurricanes.

The Washington Capitals are clinging onto the 10th place spot in the Eastern Conference, but after Monday's 5-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, they are close enough to the cellar as they are to a playoff berth.

Another embarrassing performance for Washington Monday left nothing to build on:

Brouwer is right; there was nothing positive. The Caps were down 2-0 in about five minutes, allowed a shorthanded goal to Eric Staal in the second period and 40 shots in 60 minutes while mustering only 17 of their own.

Entering the game, the Hurricanes were the East's worst team. After the game, they still are. Yet, they only trail the Caps by six points. This season has been more than disappointing for the Caps, but knowing that another prolonged losing streak could easily put them in the cellar should be enough to motivate them. Hopefully.
