Johnson in goal (Varlamov backing up), Fleishmann is back, Collins is here because Sloan is still injured.

Game on....

About 2:45 in.... lots of action in front of MacDonald....

Caps score! Gordon, I do believe! (Under review, but play starts almost immediately- it counts)

1-0, Caps!

The Caps come down, Kozlov a pass to Poti.... BIIIIIG glove save for MacDonald! Again a save at 14:15 left 1st.... lots of action in front of BJ now, and he's up to the task.... very fast game, few stoppages no penalties so far, we're under 12:00 left 1st....

4:51 left 1st, it's the Isles with the PP this time- Collins to the box for interference.

meanwhile, the first goal was Gordon from brashear and Steckel, the second Laich from Geen and Johnson.

traffic in front of Johnson.... the Isles score (might actually be a deflection off Poti's stick).

2-1 Caps, under 3:30 1st now.

And it was off Poti- looked like it was coming in just over knee high, and Poti deflected it down where it knuckled through Johnny's 5 hole.... oh well.

Under 2:00 left 1st, and the SOGs are 15-12 Caps.... under 1:00....

2-1 Caps, end 1st.

Another fast period- we're over 5:00 into the 2nd already. No more scoring, but good work by both teams.... just as I type that, Johnson glove save, and we have a stoppage with 14:30 left 2nd....

Wow- at the 10:00 mark, very good work all around the crease by the Caps, but the D and MacD keep the puck out, I'm not sure how....

9:40 left 2nd, Mac stops the Caps' 25th SOG of the game....

TV timeout.

A short stoppage while the trainer attends to MacDonald- his right arm got caught between Brashear and the post, as Brash skated in on him and the net got knocked off the moorings.... couple of minutes respite, play resumes....

Collins called for interference again.... Isles to the PP, 6:26 left 2nd....

and after almost a minute in the zone, working on Steckel most of the time, they score.

3-2 Caps, 5:28 left 2nd.

Now at 2:22 left, the Caps get a PP as well....

while we wait out this TV timeout, the assists on AO's 18th goal of the season were Semin and Backstrom....

Caps keep it in for :48 until a stoppage for a high stick.... with :23 left in the PP, the Caps even it up with a trip by Semin.... 4 on 4 for :14, then an Isles' PP the rest of the period.

4-2 Caps, end 2nd, the Isles with 1:16 of PP to start the 3rd.

3rd on, and we're back to ES.... stoppage at 17:11 left in regulation....

BJ stops a 2 on 1, 16:44 left....  5:00 of back and forth, hard but steady play- then, the Isles put great pressure on.... a shot- another- another- it's under Johnson for the stoppage!

And now, Giroux in the box- a nail-biter....

Park evens it up- they skate 4 on 4.... Caps' PP now.... back to ES, and under 5:00 left.... Park in on a breakaway.... Green with the backcheck!

But then another Caps' penalty- the whole first minute spent in the Caps' end.... and killed! We're under 3:00 left in reg.... too much pressure. 2:13 left, the Isles tie it up.

4-4

BIG save Johnson with 1:01 left.... the Caps have all the best of the last 1:00, but we go to OT.

The Isles had 17 SOGs that period.... yikes.

You take it from here- I get the feeling this is a Bettman Special coming up.

A lot of skating, but doesn't sound like anyone gets any scoring opportunity... and just when I say that, Johnson with a good glove save!

They almost blew a 4-2 lead against one of the worst teams in the league, but all is well that ends well. wink.gif

Good night, Roger.

What a beautiful pass by Semin on Ovechkin's first goal. Freddy Meyer sees Ovechkin but decides to get on his knees to block a potential shot by Semin with his stick, but Semin, who knows where Ovechkin is, sends the puck in his back to the left and it's an easy shot for Ovechkin. Meyer was minus-4 and Brendan Witt minus-5.
