Yes, it calmed down. I don't think the coaches liked the crazy moments in the first period, especially Trotz.

Bolts have a couple of great chances (looks like Shattenkirk stopped or bothered the second shooter), then Hedman has a wide open net and can't shoot.

Tampa rather dangerous in this period, even though the Caps are shooting more often.

Burakovsky, another big chance. He makes a great return.

Yeah, they just showed chances in 2nd 9-5 Caps... would have liked to see more, but it's down to 20:00 now.

2-2 end 2nd.

Early PP, not much of a penalty but they called it. Caps need to pot this one.

Announced as Niskanen (coming off the bench, he got a TON on it), but everyone everywhere is saying Williams tipped it.

We shall see.

All of a sudden they look like they did before the break.

Who knew?

Hehe, yes, I was thinking the same thing. We need the 5th goal, now, then.

Orpik lost his helmet along the boards. Fortunately, he was able to skate away soon after.

Oshie and Backstrom fighting for the puck behind Tampa's net, Ovechkin arrives, chooses a side to wait for the puck, and... the puck comes right at him! Unable to take a good shot with a Bolt on his back, though.

Burakovsky with another shot! His 7th one (Ovechkin also has 7).

Caps are better with him, but playing without Johansson in this game is a handicap.

Backstrom the nice pass to Oshie, who dishes the puck into the empty net.

5-3. Hat trick for Oshie, 4 assists for Backstrom.

It's over, good win, Caps. I hope it's not serious for Johansson.

So I believe Backstrom is only one assist behind McDavid, now, and he's also in the race for most points.

Too bad Ovechkin is not scoring as often as usual this season, because the guys who are leading don't have that many goals.

Very happy for Oshie, and it will be great for him to score the next one, and be at last the 30-goal scorer he deserves to be.
