4:15 of mostly Montreal, and Gruby with at least 3 BIG saves so far... Bura is on- within seconda, first a wicked pass from behind the net to an open Carlson, then a solid post of his own...

12:45 left, it goes 4 on 4 with Kuz in the box for the trip, Plekanec for embellishment...

2:00 of "meh" from both... 10:30, Gruby an easy glove save...

GRUBAUER! GRUBAUER! GRUBAUER! 3 HUGE saves!!!

7:45 left... 6:08 Caps throw Wilson offside... 5:35 left, Caps have 4 SOGs... Stephenson, Bowey, Carlson, Beagle... 3:25 a nice 2 on 1, Bura breaks in but shoots wide, draws a penalty... finally, at 2:49, they get the extra man...


0-0 end 1st.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 8-5 Habs I'll check- 1 Caps' SOG the last 15:00 of the period?
Attempts 20-18 Habs
Blocks 7-5 Caps
Hits 10-4 Habs
Takes 2-0 Habs
Gives 3-1 Caps
Faceoffs 67% Caps (12-6)

2nd on, Caps an early penalty on Ovechkin for a hook... Habs get nothing on it except 2 SOGs (1 of them another BIG Grubauer save)...

Cap in the box again (Wilson) hooking...

1-0 Habs. That might hold up the rest of the way...

9:45 left 2nd, no life in the Caps' game yet... Caps get a PP, Carlson scores at 6:36 left 2nd.

1-1

Caps get the PP at 2:01, Habs had too many on...

1-1 end 2nd... link went dead, so here's a new one...

3rd on...

great pass from Ovie to spring Wilson at 18:10 left reg, but Niemi stops it... now Wilson in a fight, Deslauriers after Des a big hit on Djoos... Habs PP at 17:58...

killed...

14:17 Bura to the box- he started strong, but his game has gone now... Now Grubauer HUGE again after the Habs get a second pipe...

killed, Bura gets pipe again... timeout... 11:34 or so, another turnover, another open man in front of Grubauer, another crossbar...

9:19 Caps can't get out of their zone, bang-bang-

2-1 Habs. Comcast describes the frustration more than I can. Stink on ice tonight.
