Looks like Holtby and Darling in the nets...
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:
Attempts 25-21 Carolina
Blocks 8-7 Caps
Hits 9-2 Caps (really?)
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.
