Thought so, when I heard about the Walker waivers-

"Status report

Capitals forward Nathan Walker was placed on waivers and will be assigned to Hershey of the American Hockey League if he clears at noon Friday. … Djoos returns to the lineup for the first time since Nov. 14 (six games). … MacDermid replaces Fantenberg. … Mitchell, acquired in a trade with the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 23 for a conditional fifth-round draft pick, continues to deal with unresolved visa issues and will not play."

Kuz from Orlov!

13:26, it's icing Kings... and JB says they've given up the first goal 17 times this season, so the game ain't over just yet...

11:42 after a long possession the Kings put it off the ice to take themselves out of the zone...

possession shifts by both teams... Gaborik on a breakaway at 8:52, Holtby gets it with a great save, but it looks like Graovac taps it in under him...

1-1.

Now they say it's Kempe's goal with Gaborik the primary... 6:20, scoring chances are 5-1 Kings... 5:42, TV timeout... now they've changed the goal back to Gaborik...

1-1 end 1st.

Stats:

SOGs 13-9 Kings
Attempts 22-20 Caps they got the last 6 of the period
Blocks 5-4 Caps
Hits 6-4 Kings
Takes 3-3
Gives 3-1 Caps
Faceoffs 56% Caps (9-7)

even stats, even score. Both teams had several good possessions, but it was all mostly along the boards.

18:50 2nd, Quick with a beautiful save on Vrana... Kings come down, but Kuz takes it away, breaks in alone, pulls up, waits for help, and...

shoots instead of passing!!

2-1 Caps!!

15:31, Caps with too many on the ice... wow- 14:14 great save Holtby and they clear... 13:00 now the Caps get the PP on an interference... first SOG on it is a big 2 on 1 for the Kings, but Holtby big move to make Brown miss... killed...

9:59 it's 2-2... :09 later, it's 3-2 Kings...

First one, Holtby behind the net doesn't get it to Orlov, it goes up the boards to the line, and a long shot deflects off a King's raised skate.,. 2nd one, a faceoff leads to another breakaway, the guy cuts from Holtby's right to his left, and shoots on the ice- off Holtby's left pad, through the 5 hole...

Niskanen a good shot gets iron but no twine... later, Backstrom whiffs on a truly wide open net...

3-2 Kings, end 2nd. Pretty sloppy, and it cost them.

Stats:

SOGs 19-17 Caps but I don't think they had one the last several minutes
Attempts 39-33 Caps
Blocks 11-7 Kings
Hits 11-7 Kings
Takes 6-6
Gives 11-5 Caps
Faceoffs 56% Caps (15-12)

Better stat-wise, but sloppy otherwise.

I work in the morning, and didn't get much of a nap today... I think I'll take my option on the 3rd and check the final when I get up.

Wise decision.

Goals with :43 left in reg, and :04 left for the Kings.

5-2 final.
