Slept through the last one. Looks from your thread, the recap I've read and the video summary I've watched that it was a great game.

Crosby's injury didn't look as bad as I had read. Also, Ovechkin didn't high stick him in the face, it was in the arm, and it's not the reason why Crosby lost his balance.

I believe the Pens lost another player near the end.

Ah, and the Caps started with 7 defensemen! Good idea, since they quickly lost one for the rest of the game. I was wondering what Trotz would do once Alzner would be ready, and he was not able to decide: all 7 had to stay.

Orlov scores one against Holtby. 2-0 Penguins. They don't deserve their lead at all.

Caps dominating after that goal, though, unlike after the first one.

Caps must now play like their goalie is pulled and they have 2 minutes to tie the game.

KUZNETSOV!!!!

Great shift by Wilson before that. Winnik, Eller, Burakovsky... all these guys wanted it and tried hard.

I tell you: it should be 2-0 Caps, now, not 2-1 for the ugly guys. Caps are playing a great game. One mistake, one bad bounce and the others scored (I admit Hornqvist's shot was great, though).

WOW!!!! Told you they had to tie the game quickly, not only score one. And they did.

To me, the best team in the East is the Caps. Second is the Leafs. Third is the Pens.

Caps have beaten the Leafs, they must beat the Pens.

They'll have to kill a penalty first, though.
