Down 3-0 in the third, Oleksy finally managed to locate a Carolina Hurricane willing to drop the gloves—not through any lack of courage on the ‘Canes part, but because smart hockey dictates you don’t give a team down only a few goals any momentum. Hendricks said postgame he and Oleksy had been trying to engage Carolina’ Tim Wallace in the second when the Capitals were down 2-0, but Wallace smartly kept his cool. “[Oleksy] and I were both asking Wallace at the same time earlier in the second,” Hendricks said. “And Wallace was smart about it.

Justin Peters earnes second career shutout in 4-0 win over Washington

Carolina's 4-0 shutout over Washington Capitals tonight was eerily similar to the game these two teams played two weeks ago at the Verizon Center.
