The Capitals Extra podcast is anchored by NBC Sports Washington's Rob Carlin and highlights all members of our Capitals Extra postgame crew including analyst Alan May and Capitals Insider Tarik El-Bashir. Released the morning after every game, Capitals Extra breaks down the previous night's action and takes a look at the road ahead.
Things were going to be tough with no Nicklas Backstrom, Andre Burakovsky or Matt Niskanen, but no one expected this matchup between the Caps and Vancouver Canucks to get this ugly. It was a night the Caps will soon want to forget, except for Chandler Stephenson who will remember it forever. Rob Carlin, Brent Johnson and Tarik El-Bashir discuss Washington's 6-2 loss in the first game of a critical three-game road trip. How do the Caps turn things around after such a tough night and mounting injury concerns?
