Green scores, but Caps lose to Carolina 4-1

Dec 3, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

Mike Green finally scored his first goal of the 2013-14 season on Tuesday, but that’s about the extent of the good news for the Washington Capitals, who lost to the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1.

Here’s that Green goal:

Again, it was an otherwise-poor night for Washington, as Jeff Skinner enjoyed a two-goal, one-assist performance. That helped chase Braden Holtby from the Capitals net, as he was yanked after allowing four tallies in two periods.

Carolina broke a two-game losing streak, improving to 11-12-5, while the Caps saw their own two-game winning streak ending (they’re now 14-12-2).

    As a Caps fan, I find us to be the most enigmatic team in hockey. We just don’t care sometimes. There’s potential for us to be good, but we lack the effort and consistency to put the results forward.

    Another poor defensive effort. Holtby again let in a soft goal to start the scoring. I keep saying he can’t do that, it kills us each time. Maybe we start Grubauer next game, get in a change, a spark, so these lazy performances dont happen again.

    Was at the game and they just looked lifeless.

    Braden Holtby has singlehandedly turned me into Randy Quaid’s character from Major League 2. “I DETEST YOU.”
