Moments following Nicklas Backstrom’s game winning, overtime goal against the Bruins on Wednesday night, the Caps players shut the door on the locker room, locking out media and all other personnel, to hold a players-only meeting. 

It was not clear which player or players called for the meeting. The meeting lasted approximately 15 minutes before media and others were allowed to access the locker room.

The Capitals jumped to a 3-0 lead early in the second period before giving up three unanswered goals to the Bruins in the second and third periods. Nicklas Backstrom would pull the game out of the fire, scoring the game winner in overtime, giving the Caps the 4-3 win.  Caps players would not comment much on the meeting.

    They better get it together. Can’t be expected to win too many games after blowing a 3 goal lead.
