Holtby and Gibson the goalies...

game on!

15:49 left, Backstrom to Ovechkin who doesn't get all of it, rebound to Wilson who gets the post on a wide open net...

13:48, finally a stoppage- very fast game tonight.

8:11 left another timeout, this has turned into a hitting game- 11-7 Ducks to this point... Caps have had some very good chances, just haven't converted...

3:59 the Ducks score on a 2 on 1, wicked good shot.

1-0 Ducks, end 1st.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 7-7 (Beagle has 3, all in one sequence for the Caps)
Attempts 21-17 Caps
Blocks 8-4 Ducks
Hits 12-10 Ducks
Takes 2-1 Caps
Gives 4-3 Ducks
Faceoffs 70% Ducks (7-3)

Caps looked ok the first 10:00, started to slop it up the last 10:00.

Wow. Gibson HUGE save on Chiasson... and again on Wilson...

12:29 left 2nd, first penalty of the period (there was an insignificant fight in the 1st, Bieksa and Wilson) to Burakovsky for a hook...

12:24, it's 2-0.

7:10 left, a turnover and Henrique beats Holtby clean with a backhand, but gets only post...

1:45 left another post for the Ducks...

2-0 Ducks end 2nd.

Game is probably over at this point, the Caps are showing nothing on offense. When they do show a little spark, Gibson snuffs it out.

14:52 icing Ducks, and it's all Caps now... by the way, ice is bad tonight due to the basketball game this afternoon (players have commented on it), but both teams play on the same sheet...

12:33 left... fine pass from Vrana to...

Kuznetsov!!

2-2
