And a good shift by the 4th-liners to conclude the first period. Great.

4-0 end first.

Sneaky stat- Caps are 65% on faceoffs, Backstrom 5/6.

I don't know if you saw that a week ago:
https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-top-players-1-to-10/c-291440446

1. McDavid
2. Crosby
3. Karlsson
4. Kane
5. Malkin
6. Burns
7. Price
8. Matthews
9. Kucherov
10. Holtby

Where is Ovechkin? #18, LOL!

11. Backstrom
12. Marchand
13. Doughty
14. Tarasenko
15. Hedman
16. Bobrovsky
17. Benn
18. Ovechkin
19. Tavares
20. Stamkos

That article may be the reason why he is furious and wants to prove things. It may also be that actually, on the opposite, he is at peace and does not feel any pressure.

To me, the best veterans are 1. Ovechkin, 2. Stamkos, 3. Crosby, 4. Backstrom.

And the kids, of course: 1. McDavid, 2. Matthews.

The goalies are a different species. 1. Holtby, 2. Price.

Alzner trips Ovechkin, but it's De la Rose who goes to the box, hehehe. Caps on the PP.

Very bad PP for the Caps, they are clumsy.

Orlov makes a big mistake, and Canadiens score short-handed!

4-1.

And the penalty is killed. The Canadiens are OK for more penalties to kill this way.

Canadiens much better in this period. Holtby with big saves.

Caps must take control of the game again. They became a bit lazy at 4-0.

Oh, Beagle had a chance! Too high, or it was deflected by a d-man or the goalie.

Everyone had a chance to score this one... Kuznetsov, Ovechkin, and finally Oshie buries it.

Oh, could be Ovechkin's 4th. It was off the skate of a d-man, for sure.

Stream is working great for me.

And Smith-Pelly scores the sixth one!!!

Not sure again who scored, LOL. Could be the first Aussie goal.

They gave Ovechkin his 4th... and Smith-Pelly. Kuz with 4 assists now, a +3... Caps still at 59% on faceoffs, Backstrom down to 50% but Eller (60%), Kuz (67%) and Beagle (71%) have picked up the slack.

PS: If your stream is freezing, click on HD and select a lower bit rate. I watch the games at 1545 Kbps or so. Have a good third period!

I already used your link to get back in- much better.

And Walker gets credit for the 6th goal!

Lots going on- Caps caught a break on an offside, I think- looked like Eller flipped the puck into the stands. Ref kind of trailed him back to the bench, talking all the way...

Holtby makes a save, covers, whistle blows, Byron comes in late with a stick to the knee area- worlds collide, but eventually no calls...

Habs to the PP with 13:07 left reg.
