The Capitals Talk podcast is anchored by NBC Sports Washington's Capitals beat reporter Rob Carlin and highlights all members of our Capitals coverage team. Carlin will also reach out to a host of outside influencers both in the D.C. media and the national landscape.
The guys react to a busy evening in D.C. where the streaking Capitals take care of New Jersey 6-3. They start by breaking down the 2nd period penalty that saw Tom Wilson get ejected for a match penalty. Will he be suspended? Should he have been penalized? Will it be rescinded? Alan has strong thoughts on the subject.
Then they dive into the team's response in protecting the lead after Wilson left the game and killed the penalty. Plus, Nicklas Backstrom records his 2nd career hat-trick and Braden Holtby has another great game in net.
Oh and by the way, Evgeny Kuznetsov returned to the ice.
