Washington Capitals                                               

The Washington Capitals will welcome the Chicago Blackhawks to Capital One Arena for an NHL game on Thursday. The Washington Capitals lost 6-7 in their last game over the Blue Jackets. Nick Jensen had two goals and T.J. Oshie and Sonny Milano also scored for the Capitals, who have lost three in a row and six of their past eight games.

“Any time you’re scoring six goals and losing, it’s going to be a rough night,” Jensen said. “You’ve got to keep reiterating defense and working at it and finding what is going wrong. There obviously is something going wrong, so we got to find those and make defense a priority.” Columbus got two goals from Adam Boqvist and one each from Eric Robinson, Emil Bemstrom and Jenner. Daniil Tarasov made 31 saves, and Roslovic completed the comeback with 2:17 left in 3-on-3 OT.

“We’ve been hit on the chin a lot this year,” Roslovic said. “It’s something that will be good for us going down the road as to learning how to grind through that adversity and it’s something that we can learn from tonight, to be able to find wins.”

Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks on the other hand lost 5-0 against the Avalanche in their last game. Alex Stalock stopped 27 shots for Chicago, which has dropped two straight. “I thought he was good,” coach Luke Richardson said of Stalock. “In the first period he made that big save on (Nathan) MacKinnon to keep it at 1-0.” Colorado star Cale Makar was scratched, but he is considered day to day with an undisclosed injury. 

His absence meant the Avs played without three of their top six defensemen. Josh Manson (lower body) has missed three weeks, and Erik Johnson (broken ankle) hasn’t played since Feb. 11. MacDermid replaced Makar in the lineup and took advantage when his goal at 2:45 of the first period ricocheted off the knee of Blackhawks defenseman Ian Mitchell and by Stalock.

Malgin made it 2-0 at 6:17 of the second, and Rantanen’s power-play goal midway through the period gave Colorado a three-goal lead. “I think the first two periods we actually had some good chances,” Chicago defenseman Caleb Jones said. “They obviously had a couple there and got one on the power play, but they’re a good team and keep coming at you.”
