2:22 gone, another great chance, Kuz this time... Wilson had the secondary on the goal...

Caps pressure again, a board battle, a pass to Backstrom alone in front... great glove save by Smith... and the Flames come down and score. Gaudreau with a good shot. First one of those Holtby has let in in ages.

1-1

Holtby a HUGE save on Bennett from inside 2 feet... 13:50 left 1st, Caps going on the PP when they come back from the break...

Ovechkin shot stopped, Backstrom shot gloved... Ovechkin stopped again, Oshie gets iron... Flames finally clear after 1:30 in the zone for the Caps... killed... 11:02 left now...

9:53 Backstrom to the box for interference...

great work by the PKers, no SOGs... killed... 7:01 left, puck out of play and a scrum, but no calls...

5:39 Holtby gloves an easy one for the timeout... Holtby good glove save at 4:21... 4:09 Bowey to the box for holding the stick (Brouwer thought it was himself)... another good kill- Flames had over 1:00 of zone time, no SOGs...

Wilson gets the outside of a post at about :26...

1-1, end 1st.

Stats after 1

SOGs 12-11 Caps
Attempts 24-19 Flames
Blocks 8-3 Caps
Takes 2-2
Gives 5-2 Caps
Faceoffs 63% Flames (15-9)

Some good things, and some not so good- Backstrom 0/5 on faceoffs, the Orpik goof on the goal... decent overall, but can be a lot better.

3rd on... Caps to the PP early, 19:27 left reg... killed- had chances, converted 0... 16:10 Cap in the box this time...

Holtby a big save but the rebound goes in- and a slash sends the Caps a man down again...

3-1 Flames... and just after it expires, it's 4-1 as the puck gets past Holtby...

4-1.

9:58 left reg... I want to go to bed, but, like a big train wreck, I can't take my eyes off the Caps...

attempts are now 63-45 Flames... 6:22 left, icing Caps... EN at about 3:05... Mike Smith thinking about a goal, JB says... Smith covers at 2:12... icing Flames at 1:22... Smith easy glove at 1:12...

Smith save at :46.3...

4-1 Flames, final. Back in bad.
