CapRat now reports he's back on the ice... HNiC opened to a series montage backing music "Peoples' Champ" new song by Arkells.

Pretty cool.

Blue Point Toasted lager alternating with Kona Longboard lagers at the nest tonight.

Playoff hockey and beer.

Life is sometimes really really good.

I lost my post... :(

12:23 left 1st Caps go offside and a timeout. Really great pace to the game...

all Caps to 11:14, bigtime... all Caps to 8:39 except the last shift for VGK very strong, but Smith takes a penalty on it- Caps to the PP after the break...

MAF gloves a long hard one at 1:30 PP left... Caps fool around, cleared at :59 left... cleared at :28... killed, 1 SOG on it... Mchslt hits iron... 5:46 left 1st and a timeout...

3:13 left, Holtby holds a shot for the TV timeout... SOGs 5-5 to here, last I saw scoring chances were 4-4...

2:13 icing Caps... Ovechkin great block of a Schmidt shot... Caps have blocked 15 shots so far... 

that was a pretty good period, both ways- both got PPs, nothing got through... low SOGs but tons of blocks, good/great saves by both goalies on the few shots that did get through. Like a prize fight, feeling each other out.

2nd will be even better- HNiC says VGK will pinch the D in to try and control in the Ozone.

Now Holtby covers at 17:31 left 2nd... 16:10 puck out of play to Holtby's right... Miller takes Bura's stick right out of his hand, Bura pushes him to the ice... thugs, but no calls... another HUGE rush from the Caps, out of play at 14:49... HUGE save from Holtby during the play, 13:58 left 2nd...

Orpik knocked silly by a clean reverse hit from Neal, being attended to... 12:59 Caps are offside... 10:02 after a good shift for the Caps, Kempny gets hooked and it's PP Caps coming... Caps take awhile to get in gear, MAF great save on AO at :55 left PP... Wow- Trotz hit in back as puck comes out of play... Caps get quickwhistled at :17 left... killed...

Caps get a 3 on 1... Kuznetsov!! 7:10 left 2nd. Caps are just shutting VGK down.

Holtby under pressure around 5:55 left 2nd, but they get over it quick.. VGK over 5:00 without a SOG...

Orpik almost an own goal trying to keep one out, Holtby finally covers... Holtby a good save... 2:05 left 2nd... earlier Oshie showed the "Don't care what it costs, ain't takin' it from none of you guys tonight" attitude. Got crosschecked unfairly, slashed the guy immediately...

Attitude.

Gotta love it.

DS-P to the box at 1:26 left 2nd... great play Niskanen, draws a foul breaking away and it's 4 on 4 at :55... :52 MAF save on Carlson... Holtby big cover at :37 4 on 4, :03.2 2nd.

Great game, Caps are on cruise control tonight.

PP :52 Caps... killed, Caps were hot on it... Oshie post... Holtby easy save at 16:44 left reg... 16:31 Holtby screws up, and it's 2-1.

:(

Backstrom tripped at 12:25 left reg, Caps to the PP...killed... 9:40 left reg... just before 8:00 Holtby hit in throat by stick, but he's ok as play continues... 6:39 left... DS-P!!! 6:07... Bumper's has gone down, for some reason... 4:54 and a timeout... icing VGK at 4:28... 3:30 Caps dominating... Holtby save at 3:24 and a timeout...

EN at 2:38... 1:50... icing Caps at 1:39 as Wilson just misses the EN... 1:00... Holtby covers :39.5... 

final.
