Wow. Boomer. And late in the period, too.

Nice.

It was off the outside of Bobrovsky's leg and off the post.

Stephenson to the box for roughing.

Second intermission. 1:54 of the penalty to kill in the third period.

Did you see what the Pens did yesterday? Guenzel had a natural hat trick and added a fourth goal 10 seconds after that. However, on one of his goals, there was a HORRIBLE non call on a brutal tripping. The Flyers deserved better. They fought hard. They blew a 4-2 lead, though.

The Pens score a lot of goals, but Holtby and Grubauer should be able to contain them better than that, and also the Pens give up a lot of goals too.

But let's finish the Blue Jackets first. I hope the Caps only think of that now.

I'm getting sleepy and I have to do things in the morning tomorrow, so I'll stop here. I hope the Caps will be strong and will even score some more. And I hope the Leafs will tie their series.

So good night, Roger. See you next time. For the second round, hopefully.

Speaking of egregious calls (Dubois makes it 3-2 after the penalty expires), while defending the 5 on 3, Murray deliberately kicked the net off the post- no call...

3-2 Caps with lots of time left.

Truthfully, both those penalties were iffy if not not penalties at all. Nice to see the Caps show some guts tonight...

a camera shot of Jenner as the go to a break says it all- they're done, it's just a matter of what the final score is...

by the way, 16 straight on the kill, now...

11:44 left icing Caps after a big Cbus flurry in Holtby's face... and they score off the faceoff.

5-3... 11:03 out of play off Holtby... lots of push by the Jackets, but thast finally wears off... 7:04 a little push by the Caps, Bob the stop, and a scrum as the Kuz pushes the D guy into Bob as he covers and his helmet flies off... Kuz to the box...

17 kills in a row, 2 SOGs on that one... 4:23 left reg Holtby hangs on, and the timeout...

Bob pulled at 2:59... Holtby covers at 2:20... Orpik blocks a shot, goes down like he's dead- rope a dope, fooled everyone, no calls :D ...

and at :13.9, a a80+ foot ENG for the good guys (Eller)... a scrum, Wilson goes and the CBJ guy goes...

6-3 final.

Pens are next.
