Caps had 0 SOGs at the halfway mark... wow Holtby two more huge shots... gonna be another call against... Preds score on the delay at 8:12 left... Caps decide not to review (puck hit with stick right at crossbar level).

1-0 Nashville 7:57 left 1st.

SOGs 12-0 now, attempts 20-9... another Nash PP at 4:44... killed... 2:20 left... another Holtby save... the rebound goes in- longer range shot, but Bonino deflects it right in front of Holtby.

2-0 Predators. Caps finally get a SOG, almost 18:00 in...

And Holtby with 2 more saves in real tight, maybe 2 ft or less... 1:22 left, the Caps finally get a PP...

Ovechkin 2 of the SOGs, DS-P the other... seriously, I think this is Niskanen rust, and they're paying for it early. They look totally disorganized so far. They'll settle down soon... 2nd on...

Caps ice it with :05 left in the PP... killed... 16:16 left 2nd, Caps to the PP again...

Carlson! 2-1 (might be Oshie...

Goal 1 on a delayed call, should have been blown dead when Niskanen touched it, but they played on

Goal 2 a deflection off a stick right at crossbar level, straight down and in

Goal 3 off (I think) Orpik's skate

No one's gotten a clean goal off Holtby in 7 games... 11:30 left 2nd... 4-2 at 10:56.

Fiala trips Carlson behind the net, no call, goes to the front of the net and deflects one in.

Now Oshie scores :17 later!!!

4-3

3rd on, Grubauer in... big save already at 19:40 left reg... 13:03 left reg, action but no goals...

I also think Djoos got injured- 5:48 TOI, hasn't been out in the 3rd, don't recall him at all in the 2nd... Oshie whiffs on his hat trick try... 7:56 left reg.

5:44, Caps do everything but get it over the line... nothing much to write home about the rest of the way.

6-3 final.

Recap at Caps.com doesn't mention his name... this, from the NHL recap:

Capitals defenseman Christian Djoos left with an upper-body injury in the second period. There was no update on his status after the game.

Anyone taped it, he went out just before the 5th Nashville goal (somewhere around 13:55-14:05 gone in the 2nd- goal was at 14:06).

Hopefully not seriously serious, but I guess we'll know by Thursday.
