About Williams: I do hope Caps won't need his Game-7 expertise. They gotta win every round in 4 or 5 games.

Plenty of time here, with the PP and the faceoff...

Ovechkin tripped down as he's going to the net. Shouldn't it be a penalty shot?

PP instead.

Goal!!!!! It did look like they would score in these 17 seconds or so.

End of second period, 3-1 Caps. Looks good.

Not sure Backstrom touched the puck. It was not even necessary. The puck was gliding behind Elliott towards the line.

The difference was made because the Caps wanted to score in these 17 seconds. They played as if it was the last seconds of regulation and they needed to tie the game.

Cal still has almost every stat advantage except SOGs- I guess it's not how, it's how many. happy.gif

Just watched Calgary's goal. Orpik was asking Winnik to take the other guy, but he didn't, so when Orpik switched to Monahan, it was too late.

I thought Orpik should have gone to Monahan- Winnik had the speed going straight toward the closer Gaudreau and Holtby had the shot covered all the way if Gaudreau let it go.

Once Holtby went left, he couldn't get back right quick enough. Anyway, great shot by Monahan.

By the way, we didn't mention Johansson is back. He left due to "illness", last time.

I think you're right about Orpik. He should have seen he had to take Monahan.

What a great spinning and shot by Ovechkin. His 9th shot on goal.

Great shift by the 4th-liners. Less convincing one by the 3rd-liners after that.

Looks like the boys are back, at least for tonight.1st and 2nd lines are killers, that will make 3rd and 4th better. Holtby starting to look really sharp again.

Shattenkirk finally gets a goal, just need Orpik to settle down a little, Johansson start scoring, and they're unstoppable again.

So the last goal was by Shattenkirk, his first as a Caps. Congrats! It was strong enough to go through the goalie.

Ovechkin on a 1-on-1... denied! His 10th shot on goal, normally.
