Fast game, but a slow start, the Caps slowly getting some legs... 12:34 left 1st, and it's the Caps to the PP...

3 SOGs on it, but no goals... back to ES... now at 9:21 left, Holtby under siege for a few seconds, and covers for the TV timeout...

3:09 left puck out of play and a timeout... Caps without a SOG in the last 10:53 of the period...

0-0, end 1st.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 10-10
Attempts 25-21 Carolina
Blocks 8-7 Caps
Hits 9-2 Caps (really?)
Takes 2-2
Gives 5-3 Caps, two of them right beside or behind Holtby
Faceoffs 64% Carolina (9-5)

Caps started slow, had a decent PP with no result, and kind of dogged it the rest of the period.

game on!
2nd on, Holtby hard save only :17 in... over 13:00 without a shot, now... Caps get a penalty on them as Wilson is thrown a stick from the bench...

Caps get a shot at 18:15 left, so that was 13:38 without one... killed, but 4 SOGs on it for the 'Canes...

looks like Oshie's feeling better, that line has had 3-4 real good shifts... Orlov gets crossbar on a strange shot at about 12:20 left 2nd, it actually beat Darling and dropped over his left shoulder...

10:57 left, Holtby gloves... after a looooooong delayed call, Caps to the PP again at 9:13 left 2nd, after the timeout...

Carlson passes to Ovechkin, but it never gets to him- picked off for a breakaway by Staal...

1-0 Hurricanes.

13:46 left reg, not a lot going on,,, got to admit, Ovie's playing super these days- passing, backchecking, working hard on O, the guy is everywhere- can't blame him for the slack in their game...

10:43 left... wow- Wilson CRUSHES a guy, gonna be a penalty, and at 9:06 the 'Canes take the lead... Caps thought they had possession before the goal, still griping about it...

now Niskanen LEVELs a guy, and at 7:26 it's the Caps on the PP this time...

killed, no SOGs... 3:20 left reg... icing 'Canes at 1:46, I think Holtby comes out here... yes, EN, but icing again at 1:40... a steal and an ENG at 1:29... almost another at 1:13... :45 left... :16.5 icing Carolina...

3-1 Carolina final.
