I will probably miss this entire game again. So have fun, Roger. You certainly will if it goes well for the Caps. I'll get organised to follow the next ones.

Let's go, Caps!!!

Tatar in for VGK, Perron out... to be honest, I'm going to watch much more than I post- (music plays...) Memories...

HNiC has just such a wonderful opening for every game- so much respect for their coverage.

Intros on the ice, it's 8:16... someone at the game says MAF after warmups waited until all the Caps left and then shot a puck into our net... military band salute, Anthem coming up...

game on!

Both teams have posts in the first 1:12... great game... 16:02 Carlson to the box for tripping... Neal post on an open net at 1:26 left PP... killed... VGK is playing a great game... 10:38 Caps to the PP now, Eller tripped on a (I think) knee to knee...

T J OSHIE  ... Holtby covers at 4:49, VGK look like they just don't know what to do- they've had chances galore, 2 posts, and they're down by 1... 3:43 and it's icing VGK... VGK controls, but Ovie takes it away... to Kuz... to Wilson!! 2-0!!

Lost a post, twice... Caps dominating now, DS-P scores with :20.5 left, and it's 3-0 Caps end 1st.

It's like the lightbulb went off over their heads "You know, we aren't playing all that great and already up 2-0... what might happen if...?"

Incredible desire the last 4:00 of the period. Got away with the bounces early, now dominating.

I think the Caps won that period and VGK better man up soon. 

2nd on...

17:40 left even period, both with chances... Carlson saves an almost sure goal by tripping a guy at 14:39, PK time...

great kill, Holtby gloves as it expires, they go to a TV timeout.

Pretty darn good playoff game, if you ask me. Play resumes... and by 12:04 left, Caps have had two great chances and MAF has to cover... in the next :50, two big chances for VGK including a post- this is one hell of a game... Wilson to the box for the crosscheck at 10:42...

great killing again, puck out of play at :02 left PK... 7:13 left 2nd... icing VGK at 6:37... Caps to the PP 5:15 left 2nd, Neal for slashing...

Caps buzzing... Carlson at 1:22 left PP!!!!

Woke up, checked the score, 3-0 Caps, but it looks like it's mostly Vegas in command. It could quickly change, so Caps must take control, to make Holtby's job easier.

No call as the Caps high stick Reaves... 2:30 left period... VGK to 1:44, Caps stymied on a 2 on 1 at 1:38... icing VGK at 1:31... :59... :50.1 icing Caps...

:37.3 puck out of play... VGK tries to control but the Caps will have none of it.

4-0 Caps, end 2nd.

The Reaves non-call was correct, it was his own stick, and then he even embellished it. The ref actually went over to him and said something like "you embellished. You've been doing it all game. Never gonna give you that."

3rd on... Caps to the PP as Ovechkin's stick gets slashed out of his hands... ok PP but a little off... killed, long control from the Caps... Kuz to the box at 16:18 left reg...

Neal scores at :01 after the kill, it's 4-1... a whisper from the hockey gods behind the players already riding the chariot...

"They still have plenty of time. it ain't over 'til it's over."

puck out of play 11:16 left reg... Orpik just pushes Eakin off a puck and leisurely takes it away... 8:51 puck into the VGK bench... Reilly Smith makes it 4-2, 7:35 left reg...

Wilson and Reaves get into it, and its 4 on 4 at 6:56 left reg... Kempny!!!!! Still 4 on 4, Ovie and Orlov can't connect on a 2 on 1...

4:50 Holtby save and a timeout... 4:24 icing Caps... Caps to the PP at 3:03... Oshie gets taken out, boarded at 1:13 left PP, it's a 5 on 3, Oshie McNabb and Engelland get tossed... Connolly scores on the 2 manner, it's 6-2 and still on the PP... Reaves very frustrated at :42.2, :26 left PP... :08.7 left reg...

final.
