Washington had likely its worst period of the season to close Tuesdays game against the Panthers and it cost the Caps a win.
Sam Reinhart scored the winning power-play goal with 14.4 seconds left, capping a furious comeback for the Florida Panthers to beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 on Tuesday night. Trailing 4-1, the Panthers scored four goals on a season-high 27 shots in the third period to snap a two-game skid. “It was pretty quiet in between periods,” Reinhart said.
Detroit Red Wings goalie Alex Nedelkjovic stopped 41 shots in a 2-1 road win over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.
