Photos: Capitals pop Oilers’ winning bubble

 

The Washington Capitals popped the Oilers winning bubble after scoring four unanswered goals through three periods on their way to a 4-1 win over Edmonton at Rexall Place on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2103. The disappointing home game came on the heels of a six-game road trip. Edmonton will hit the road again to take on the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Yes, it was the only thing
No, the terrorists win
Hard to say
Who cares about hockey at a time like this?
