The site is very slow today, so not gonna post much... Caps finally get an SOG on the PP at :39 left, but it's killed...

8:02 the Caps right back on the PP... 6:45 Ovechkin! NO- Connolly the tip!

1-0 Caps!

Another early period goal against at 18:42 left 2nd. They never seem to learn... lots of cycle, cycle, cycle, and then got caught on the line change with everyone dog tired.

Had a good post, but wiped it out- 2-1 Blues end 2nd, Caps being totally outplayed

Stats after 2:

SOGs 24-14 Blues
Attempts 46-35 Blues
Blocks 14-7 Blues
Hits 16-16
Takes 6-5 Caps yay
Gives 7-3 Caps
Faceoffs 67% Blues (24-12)

18:03 left reg Caps to the PP after a wicked good play and a delayed call...

nothing on it, very dull PP... 16:02 Hutton gloves as it expires... 15:54 icing Blues... 13:47 the Caps are offside and a TV timeout...

Caps get a PP OVECHKIN!!

New game, 2-2.

9:11 Eller scores to put the Caps ahead... 5:24 icing Caps... 4:49 puck out of play, after all that time right in front of Holtby again...

and at 4:09, a long shot from the blue line, a deflection that is reviewed for a high stick...

3-3.

Hutton covers, covers, covers... 2:06 left reg... 153 Holtby saves the game 1:47 he covers the next one...

1:34 left reg... 1:13 stoppage for a high stick on the Caps, back to the neutral zone... :54.2 faceoff...

OT as Holtby gloves a 3/4 rink shot... fast OT, under 1:00 ;eft, fairly exciting...

:43!!!! Backstrom!!!!

Controversial win, as one of the Blues slashed and lost his stick, no call...
