The Caps don't always dump the puck very smartly. They give up the puck too often. They should try more often to enter the zone with it, because almost every time they dump it, they lose it.

Eventful last 8 seconds.

Caps needed a faceoff by Beagle, of course (7 of 8 so far tonight). He gets kicked off of the circle. Caps still win the faceoff (Smith-Pelly) but the Bolts manage a shot (Kucherov) that hits the post!

Second intermission. 1-0 Caps.

Tampa will remain constantly dangerous but the Caps are having a great game. They must score a couple early in the third to go through the last three minutes a bit better.

Shots: 24-14 Caps.
Hits: 29-13 Caps.
Takeaways: 11-4 Caps.
Faceoffs: 23-16 Caps.

Caps have more giveaways (7-3) but they're creating offense and taking risks, so it's normal.

Ovechkin with a great dive to keep a puck in the offensive zone. The crowd wants a penalty, but I think there was no tripping.

Kucherov fakes a shot, brings his puck a little more and shoots. Save Holtby.
