missed the goalie matchup, but I'm going to assume Holtby and Hellebuyck...

Pens leading 3-1. Caps must win. They need a winning streak to get rid of a few teams.

EDIT: 4-1 now.

Caps to the PP. Time to make a hole in the net. The Jets' net, ideally.

Wow, Backstrom stone by Hellebuyck!

First one-time by Ovechkin wide, second blocked.

Backstrom's redirect was possibly too clean on his chance. He should have shot hard enough to make a hole in that net, hehe.

Holtby just played his 20,000th minute... decent start, nothing great yet. 7:00+ gone 1st...

Caps get the first PP... killed, couple real good chances... ice must be terrible in front of that Great-West Life sign, at least two guys have lost it right there...

1-0 Jets.

Jets score on the rebound. Orpik unfortunately helped them a little.

1-0 Winnipeg.

The ice is bad, several guys fell already.

And now Jets to the PP.

Yes, a Jet fell when he was about to create himself a short-handed breakaway, during the Caps' PP. Caps got lucky, there. Then before the goal, another Jet fell but they kept the puck. The goal also came from a Caps' d-man failure to clear when he had the puck. He was only able to send it... to a Jet.
