Ovechkin across to Backstrom back across to Djoos on that goal- I'm telling you, that's the textbook right there, if you get to see it...

Djoos already a goal and assist, and it's very early... Stephenson turns it over, but prevents the breakaway and Holtby takes care of the rest...

4:30 left 1st.

3:05 left out of play off an Orlov shot... NJD scores on another really terrific passing play at 2:28. sad.gif

at one point, CL says, Caps were up 7-1 in SOGs- it's now 12-11 NJD...

2-1 Caps, end 1st.

Lots of action, interspersed with minutes of lethargy.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 12-12
Attempts 22-21 Caps
Blocks 6-6
Hits 10-5 Caps
Takes 4-1 NJD
Gives 4-2 Caps
Faceoffs 54% Caps (13-11)

Outplayed them but not by much, and they're 1 down. Only takes a second to be tied.

icing NJD at 16:56... 14:26, Caps to the PP on a hold... 13:32 almost, Ovie...

Another great play, and no credit but Backstrom started it behind the net... assists were Backstrom and Ovechkin...

finally a good/great shift again but Schneider is too much for Carlson. 4:18 left 2nd and a timeout...

4:11 Oshie to the box for a high stick... pretty easy kill, Eller had a great SH chance but missed the building... killed...

3-1 Caps, end 2nd.

Stats after 2:

SOGs 22-19 Caps
Attempts 44-41Caps
Blocks 13-13
Hits 17-10 Caps
Takes 8-2 NJD ( :o )
Gives 6-2 Caps ( )
Faceoffs 53% Caps (20-18)


better period, but NJ is still in this game.

ANOTHER great passing play by Ovechkin... Niskanen!!!!
