I was napping, so i must have turned this on late- the Caps are actually up 1-0, neuvirth "brilliant" according to Joe, and...

1-0 Caps, end 1st.

edit: and the goal was- be still, my heart- Jeff Schultz!

Assists to Knuble and Wideman (0-6-6 in his last 7 games with the Caps, and only one game with a minus-something).

And Wideman just had a very full shift, he broke two actions by the Devils and created some offense too.

Alzner trips a Devil from behind (that was not that clear to me), and Caps on the PK, 3:50 in the second period.

Agree about the Devils' uniforms. You'd think it's an old game that is rebroadcast.

Caps managed to quickly recover the puck after a bad turnover, and create some offense after that.

Yes, not many shots on goal. It's been hard to do anything good in the offensive zone, but the same applies to the Devils.

Wideman to the box, another penalty to kill...

And great job by the Caps on this PK.

In the first minute, a Devil (Josefson, I think) fell on his butt and the Caps had a short-handed 2-on-1, Backstrom took a shot but Knuble, who was crashing the net, could not get the rebound.

KNUBLE SCOOOOOORES!!!

This time, crashing the net paid, although he had two Devils on his back. Great passes before that, Ovechkin from left to right to Carlson, who makes the perfect pass to Knuble.

2-0 Caps.

And now Carlson with a great defensive play. Neuvirth saved by his post, too.

Devils are 25th in the League on the PP- I'm not worried...

I agree that it was a slow 2-on-1, but it was still a 2-on-1 by the time they took the shot, so they were right to take their time. Maybe Knuble should have gone to the side for a one-timer, though, but he loves crashing the net, hehe.

And Caps "fans" are complaining about the PP?

Third on and the last 51 seconds of penalty are easily killed.

They're not complaining about it tonight, because the Caps haven't had one, yet. lol

Spectacular save by Neuvirth to end a rather good period for the Devils (without being that threatening).

Hehe, I know, nothing to complain about tonight, but still, that Devils PP is horrific and makes the Caps one look great retrospectively. wink.gif

Kovalchuk, Elias, Zajac, Zubrus, Rolston... They don't look like a threat at all, tonight.

And Knubles scores his second! On a great pass by Ovechkin. Johansson had to jump. This line is +3 I think.

3-0 Caps.

So Knuble has two goals and a primary assist. Not bad. I guess the lines will stay like this until Arnott is back. Sturm-Backstrom-Semin... that's some good second line.

Yeah, Sturm hasn't done much, but he seems to be getting better every game. Might be a "sleeper" in the playoffs.

Kovalchuk alone in front of Neuvirth, denied. That's just not the Devils' night.

2:30... 2:00... 1:30... 1:00... :45... :30...

3-0 Caps, final!!!

Caps win. Devils did not even try to take a decent shot in the last seconds, I think it came just after the buzzer and Neuvirth caught that puck with his glove. He had a great game, with 33 saves. I think the Caps right now have the best possible goaltending, the best they ever had, from 3 very young netminders.

Next game is Tuesday, actually, at Philadelphia. 7:30 pm your time, 5 hours later for me (it will be like that until Sunday next week, when we change time too).
