Look, it's the Washington Capitals. A 3-0 lead in the first period is just asking for a comeback, and Washington obliged. We can talk all we want about the Kings falling into a defensive shell, and the Capitals capitalizing (how appropriate), and the late equalizer the Kings allowed... but in the end, the Kings managed to get two points, which was two more than Anaheim picked up. Mission accomplished.

Recap to come. We promise to talk more about that Jeff Carter game-winner.
