First 2:00, all NYR... except that last sneaky pass up the middle, was a good clean breakaway if the D man didn't get it... 14:33 great chance for the Caps, but Ovie tries to pass in real close, the D slides across and blocks the pass... should have shot it.

9:04, icing NYR... Caps have had some really good shifts lately, but no SOGs... Wilson catches a Shattenkirk stick in the mouth, no calls... SOGs 7-2 Rags... Nash gets post, but later at 3:05 left 1st still no score.

Game on!
My opinion it's been a little sloppy from both sides, and the ice is terrible- at least 4 guys have wiped out behind and to the left of Pavelec...

SOGs 8-7 Rangers now at 1:45... well, except for the Rangers missing two chances at an open net because no one was in the right spot...

0-0, end 1st.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 10-8 NYR
Attempts 17-13... Caps
Blocks 8-1 NYR
Hits 9-9
Takes 4-4
Gives 7-4... NYR
Faceoffs 63% NYR (10-6)

Decent road period, could have been a little better, and a lot worse.

Game on!
18:12 left 2nd, good chance for the Caps... Kreider I guess was injured in the first, has not come back and word is now will not be... 16:00... 14:03, Grubauer BIG save on a wide open guy... turning into a February game in December, here- not a lot going on...

after a really terrific shift ending at 9:52 left, the Caps go on the PP... killed, and at 7:27 it's NYR to the PP this time... killed, no SOGs on it... 5:12 left 2nd.

Game on!
Vrana and Kuz get a 2 on 1, and get the PP at 4:39... killed, lots of action though...

0-0, end 2nd.

Stats after 2:

SOGs 21-18 Caps
Attempts 36-28 Caps
Blocks 13-3 NYR
Hits 14-13 NYR
Takes 9-5 NYR
Gives 11-8 NYR
Faceoffs 60% NYR (21-14)

Better period, but not enough. Sooner or later the PP has to get back on track. Can't keep ofering every night.
