The site is wonky again tonight, lot of action missed (mostly Van)... 16:15, the 'Nucks flip it out of play, and it's a Caps' PP...

total shit. You should see this PP- it stinks to heaven...

12:55 left 1st, DS=P to the box... 1:08 left in the PK, Caps with too many men- 5 on 3...

and at 11:37 left, it's

1-0 Canucks.

7:01 Caps get a post, immediately Grubauer save...

Caps are pretty much shit tonight, and you know I never call them names- that's how bad they are...

5:48 left, TV timeout... stink on ice tonight...

oh my heart- 4:47, the Caps score, but it's under review... loooooong review...

good goal! 1-1!

Goal was Carlson from Ovechkin and Backstrom, too much action before it to try to describe...

ELLER!! What a play and shot!!

2-1 Caps...

stats after 1:

SOGs 14-11 Van
Attempts 25-19 Van
Blocks 8-4 Caps
Hits 10-7 Caps
Takes 1-0 Van
Gives 5-1 Caps
Faceoffs 62% Caps (13-8)

Unreal. The lead after 1.

Somewhere, not sure of the time, Orpik takes a hard shot off his right arm and heads for the room... he's back in the 2nd...

15:03 Caps score, Kuz after the Dman hits it in with his hand!!!

3-1 Caps!!!

13:04 left 2nd Caps to the PP and a timeout... Ovechkin can't keep it in... Caps go offside... all perimeter except for the last shot by Ovie- another wasted PP...

9:45 Connolly with a great move but Markstrom beats him... 9:22 left 2nd and a TV break...

Markstrom GREAT save at about 8:30... Caps have taken control of this after a pretty bad start...


ok, now we're at the "well, maybe we can play this game, but what's my motivation?" stage...

5:20 to 4:58 Caps great chances, both times the guy passes instead of shooting...

4:52 a Carlson shot goes out of play... 1:38 left 2nd... :37.1 ... all Caps.

3-1 Caps, end 2nd.
