13:08 left, icing Caps... too much action now to really keep up typing... Holtby out to the blue line to prevent a breakaway, and somehow it's Pittsburgh on the PP again... Holtby- illegal play, delay of game (he covered the puck out near the blue line, then tried to hand pass it out of the zone)...

9:27 left as the PK starts... another SH 2 on 1, nothing... killed, only 1 SOG on it for the Pens...

now at 6:50 left 1st the Caps go on the PP on a ticky-tacky slash... 1 SOG, but it's killed...

4:14 left 1st.

3:35, Ovechkin a hard shot... Murray gloves it, it pops out to his left... Kuz can't get a handle on the bouncing puck, but it bounces in front of the net... Ovechkin can't get a full stick on it, the D man gets it and clears... 2:17 left, Carlson to the box for tripping...

killed, period ends 1-0 Penguins.

Not a bad period except for the penalties... Caps at 84% on faceoffs. Ovechkin has 3 of the 7 SOGs (Pens have 9).

Holtby and Murray both playing well.

Caps actually outshot Pens 18-14, but blocks are 11-5 the other way... interesting stat they showed, Leaguewide in the first 45 games, last year 22 slashes called... this year, 118. But PPs are only up by 48 (372? t0 326? close but not accurate numbers, sorry).

2nd on.

Djoos in the box for tripping... 1st period Caps were 16/19 on faceoffs- so far in the 2nd, 1/10...

and again, just before expiration, the Pens score.

2-0 with 11:40 left 2nd.

Ovechkin has 5 of the 11 SOGs- just ain't gonna cut it. Someone (anyone else) has to start producing...

8:40 left 2nd, Niskanen to the box for interference... killed no SOGs, icing Caps at 6:17 left.

Caps 6 guys with SOGs, Pens with 13... Djoos!

2-1! Great pass from Eller! :04.5 left, Chaisson to the box...

2-1 Penguins, end 2nd. Lots of PK needed to start the 3rd.

Caps to the PP on slash, after Vrana gets iron but no goal... 2 SOGs, and a SH breakaway that Holtby stoned... killed...

Caps to the PP at 14:04 left reg, high stick... killed... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

9:30 left reg... Caps are all from the outside and out at the blue line, Pens are all in the paint and the circles- easy to see how this is going to end...

7:40 left, Ovechkin! from Djoos!

3-2

And that was from in close- don't know why they don't get in there more often...

4:45 left, good shift by the Caps... Holtby gloves and a timeout at 4:28.

4:13, stoppage for a hand pass in neutral... Ovie almost another, but would not go... 2:32 stoppage...

Caps with the EN at about 1:30... 1:07, puck out of play...

Holtby out again at 1:02... and the feed freezes...

:17.7, Pens go offside with the EN looming... Caps take the timeout...

:08.6, stoppage at center ice... with over 1:40 of the extra man, the Caps get 0 SOGs.

3-2 Pittsburgh, final.
