16:11 left, Brossoit makes a huge stop on Wilson... 15:16, Caps to the PP... killed, couple of SOGs... 12:21, Caps to the PP again... killed, worse than the first...

9:58 left... DS-P injured just now (missed the time), puck hard shot to knee- he's missed his next shift, says JB... 5:56 left 1st.... 5:06, Ovie and Kuz almost connect...

good chance Ed, Holtby stick save... 2:06, 4 on 4 (Wilson and Maroon, roughing)...

ES, gloves drop coming out of the box, :01.1 on the clock - wow- a heavyweight bout, a 2:00+ draw...

0-0 end 1st.

Probably a better period than I'm giving it credit for, couple good chances between Ovie and Kuz, and the smooth Djoos move.

Stats:

SOGs 7-5 Caps
Blocked shots 7-3 Caps
Hits 7-6 Caps
Takes 3-2 Caps
Gives (ugh) 5-3 Caps
FOs (ugh) 44% Caps

yeah what they did they did quiet, except for a couple sloppy sections and a dull PP in parts again.

2nd on...

4 guys on the boards, 3 Caps and an Oiler... who do you think comes out with the puck? Right you are.

Holtby almost pays for it, 2 shots from inside a foot by McDavid...

16:40ish, Kuz gets hit in the mouth with a stick (inadvertent, I guess), goes off bleeding and checking teeth... scoring chances 7-3 Caps at 15:00...

13:44, Ed scores but it's under review, and should not count (very clear interference on Holtby)...

it does not count. Still 0-0... 12:08 left 2nd... don't know if Kuz has been back... yes, he is, and so is DS-p so no real damage yet tonight...

Caps making Brossoit look positively Vezina... 9:00 left... 5:24 a Holtby save and a timeout...

3:00 left 2nd... Caps a great chance at 1:50ish, ED a better one, Holtby big save, at about 1:33... and Holtby a BIGGER save at 1:01... :33, icing Oilers... Caps offside, :21.6...

0-0 end 2nd.

Stats:

SOGs 17-14 Oilers (yikes)
Hits 18-16 Caps
Blocks 13-6 Caps
Takes 4-4
Gives 11-9 Caps this sounds like a lot, to me
Faceoffs, Caps up to 47% now
Of those 17 SOGs, one was called back and about 6 big ones were all Holtby.

Carlson at 18:54 TOI after 2.

Chances now 11-9 Oilers, CL says last 5:00, outshot 6-0 (and only 5 for the Caps all period)... I think the long change did them in- Ed is faster, and the Caps don't want to make any mistakes. I think the 3rd gives them a better chance for shorter and quicker shifts... we shall see...

3rd on.

18:28, the 3rd one finally gets through Holtby.

Chiasson actually poked that one in...

15:51 and 15:44 Brossoit easy saves... 14:46 Orlov! Ed couldn't get it out, and then a wicked good pass from Wilson... and Bowey.

1-1

Will probably jinx the guy, but was just thinking Holtby hasn't given up a "geez, you beat me with a good one" goal in about 8 starts. Everything's been slow pokes like Chiasson there, or PPGs, or D farts like Orpik the other night...

Wilson hits Larsson cleanly mid ice, some of the Oli don't like it, no calls...

11:47 Oilers trying to poke another one in, Holtby finally covers it...

8:32 left, 3 Caps surround Maroon after a Holtby save, there's a little tough stuff going on, but no calls... timeout...

SOGs up to 25-19 Oilers... 6:52 could have been a Caps' PP for out of play, no call... wow- big long shift for the Oilers, Caps can't get control or clear... Holtby finally covers at 5:13... timeout... offside Caps at 4:29...

3:00, after a good chance by Ovechkin... great shift by the Caps, all the way to 1:58... 1:20 left, Ed with it... cleared at 1:08...

OT. Great defensive game now.

Oshie-Kuz-Orlov to start... great chance Ovie to Kuz, but the pass through the middle gets blocked...

3:22, Holtby BIG save again on a shot he doesn't see... penalty on the Oilers, but there's only :10.3 left, faceoff in front of Brossoit... got to win the FO...

shootout. I'm out.

No idea who did what.
