Oshie was also on the way. I saw that on the replay, Joe and Craig didn't. The goal was attributed to Oshie in the rink.

A replay shows the puck was deflected, and the goal announced as Oshie's- we shall see...

2-0 Caps, end 1st. Very good road period, except for the penalties.

Ovechkin... 0 SOGs in the 1st, 9 for the team as a whole. He should be 0-2-2 so far, if guys (Kuz, Chorney) could handle his great passes.

Ok, I've decided I'm good through 2, but who knows? An Ovie hattie early on could keep me up a little longer.

I'll stop here, I've seen the highlights of the first period.

Great news for MoJo/MarJo, by the way. He was one of my favourite Caps. It was just not possible to keep him financially, alas.

The team looks great right now, though.

We'll see who has to sit in two games, either Chiasson or Walker, I guess. These guys have to show something tonight, especially Chiasson. And Vrana may finally be able to finish one. He doesn't need to score goals, though; he's quietly amassing assists. He's on pace for 123 points, after all (Ovechkin and Kuznetsov for 287).

Caps have had good chances in the first 5:00- Eller misses the net on a 2 on 1 break, Connolly agood chance, then Burakovsky... they get running around, though, and Killorn puts the Bolts on the board.

2-1 with 14:32 left 2nd.

13:33 left Grubauer under fire again, but he stops this one by Stamkos. TV timeout. I've just made a tea, so when it's done, I'm done.

Now Grubauer a great save, Caps come down and Walker with a really good chance... 8:36, Bolts are offside and a timeout is called...

7:59, two fights break out- first one is Connolly/Girardi, as that one started play continued and Orpik got flattened by Paquette and got up on fire...

Caps end up with a PP out of it, Girardi getting an extra crosscheck penalty, all the others 2:00 roughing...

nothing on the first half, couple semi decent chances... nothing, ans TBL as they go to full strength almost pokes one past Grubauer... the net's off, TV timeout.

5:12 Caps get called for a slash, it doesn't take effect until 4:42- CL griping about how iffy the call is...

Caps with good work finally clear, and at :42 left PP TBL is offside... killed, and as it ends Kuz and Beagle on a 2 on 1... pass is just out of Beagle's reach...

Bolts come down and Kunitz cuts it to 3-2.

Orlov catches a high stick, no call... at :13.9, Caps get the PP on a slash...

3-2 Caps end 2nd, about 1:46 of PP to start the 3rd.

I'm out.
