Rob on TV says this is the 12th OT in the Caps' last 22 playoff games... Caps only 6 SOGs in the 3rd, and 5 of those were by Dmen... TV says the forwards have to step up here...

OT on... offside Caps at 17:09 left OT1, pretty even- CBJ thought they had a PP earlier, no call... 15:39 Holtby glove save after Ovechkin comes out from behind Bob with a backhand at the other end...

Holtby again at 15:38... CBJ breaks in Holtby save at 14:01... 12:04 out of play by Orlov deflection... icing CBJ, ice sweep time at 9:32 left OT1... Oshie catches an obvious high stick in the face, no call.. big shift by the Caps, 6:41 Bob covers...

5:41 Bob covers... 4:18... Carlson to the box for tripping... 1:14 left PP, CBJ gets post... great kill, and CBJ offside at 2:13 left OT1... 1:47 icing CBJ... 108 icing CBJ- between icings, CBJ covered the puck with his hand, no call...

OT2 coming up.

Caps have to win the next three games if they don't want to face elimination in this series. They must do that, really, because when you want to win the Cup, you better not face elimination early in the first series.

Thanks to hockeysc23 at Bumper's:

NHL Public Relations
@PR_NHL
The @Capitals have played past regulation in 34% of their postseason games since 2008 (34 of 100 GP), the highest percentage of any team in that span. #NHLStats #StanleyCup

Ottawa - 30.8%
Chicago - 29.7%
Boston - 29.2%
San Jose - 25.9%
LA - 25.9%

Now me- And the TV guys said it's even worse than that, lately- 12 of the last 22 (54.54%), 11 of the last 19 (57.89%)

Yikes.

No, I surprised myself by being very calm. :D It was fun when they won, but I'm so inured to them screwing up that it wouldn't have bothered me too much, just the depression of knowing not much hockey left for the next several months. Now if they can just pull this series out of the bonfire they built the first two games... that may change.

:D
