Yes, the Caps are playing hard, skating fast. When they're like that, they're hard to stop.

Blue Jackets had a potential 2-on-1 that fortunately didn't happen, during this penalty.

Caps with a lot of efforts, but no real attempt.

Vrana's shot was just after the end of the penalty, I think, when Ovechkin was rushing to the bench.

It seems Holtby needed the boost of game 3. He looks so calm and confident in this one.

Geez, Caps wasted a 3-on-1.

Eller fell in a very bad way. He wanted to hit a guy, but missed him and fell backwards against the boards in the offensive zone.

He joined the other Caps in the defensive zone a little later, but I am not sure he was totally OK.

EDIT: He would have gone to the bench if he was not OK, though, I guess.

Caps get a PP, but blow the first 1:40... Caps are looking playoffish tonight... Cbus trying to stir things up- they're surprised how strong the Caps came out... Caps can pop one late here or early 2nd, look out. Gonna be major fireworks. 2:35 left 1st.

Wilson with a big hit. He's going to the box, although it looked good.

Ah, tripping call.

He caught the skate but he hit the guy at the same time. It was a clean hit, for me.

And now a hook, so the PP will only have lasted 4 seconds. Tortorella is not particularly happy, LOL.

Awesome chance for Stephenson, the puck bounced off Bobrovsky and hit the side of the net.

Then Backstrom not happy to be pushed by Foligno, pushes him back.

When Backstrom turns into a thug, it's a good sign, I think.

I have to stop here. I think we have our team back. They must keep playing exactly like that.

Have a great game, Roger! I'll probably watch the next one entirely.
