December 18 - Washington Capitals vs. Vancouver Canucks (at Vancouver)

We stayed up for this one and it was close, but the Caps did not have the spark they've had in recent games. It wasn't a terrible effort, it just wasn't awesome. The power play was extremely disappointing, especially for being first in the NHL. And Ovie wasn't really noticeable on the ice.

I wonder if there's a special added pressure that comes with playing in Canada? I know there was a circus in town around Ovie, and that must have taken a bit of a toll. Or perhaps it was the team dinner?
