News of the night- Wilson to the top line, Burakovsky to the 3rd...

odd news- longest tenured Cap after Ovechkin and Backstrom? Jay Beagle, playing his 400th game tonight...

Holtby vs. Mrazek tonight...

game on!

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... 12:55 left 1st, DSP in the box for tripping...

killed... 10:09 left, Caps get the PP now on a high stick... Oshie complaining to the ref (because he's bleeding from the mouth), but it's only called for 2:00...

first Bura can't buy one, then Kuz dangles through everyone but Mrazek.

TV timeout.

Killed... Holtby covers at 6:55 left...

I'm feeling not so hot tonight, and I'm probably out after the 2nd. I need rest more than I need Caps. sad.gif

5:25 left, Bowey to the box for tripping... not all that easily, but killed...

0-0, end 1st.

I needed to reboot, missed the first 4:00 of the 2nd... Caps are on a PP... Ovechkin a sloppy pass, gets picked off, and SHG.

1-0 Wings.

Killed... 12:09 left 2nd, Caps get another PP try... killed, but several shots on it... 10:00 left 2nd...

5:22 left, icing Caps... finally!

With :49.1 left in the 2nd, Bura blasts one in! Oops- :27.1 left, Orpik to the box... tripping again.

1-1, end 2nd. PK to start the 3rd.

I took some ibuprofen, and I'm going to try to stick around... we shall see. sad.gif

Wow- 14:36 left, it's 2-2 on a wild shot and a 20 foot deflection by Tatar. You have to see this one to believe it. No chance for Holtby on it.

Now a Cap penalty- the wheels aren't staying on the bus for long, tonight... finally at 12:56 left play stops for the TV timeout. Cap in the box (Orpik again) when they return...

killed again, 4 for 4 tonight... 10:22, a Wing breakaway, doesn't get the shot off... SOGs are 30-30 to here...

8:32 Carlson to the box for delay (puck out of play)...

7:15 it's 3-2 Wings. Tatar from a great pass by Zetterberg.

3:56 left... some effort by the Caps, but no good results... now at 2:43 it's Detroit in the box for delay...

stoppage at 1:59 (1:17 PP) to clear some debris (someone's camera lens), Holtby being pulled...

great passing late and it's tied!!!

Oshie!!!

3-3

Passing was Backstrom, to Kuz behind the net, to Bura on Mrazek's right, to Oshie on his left. Great play (with an extra man lol)...

3-3 end regulation.

Now I think I can get through the OT.

Sounds like it was a great game. And there's another one tonight. Too late for me, though.

The games in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary will be even later. I may actually get to watch the end of the first two if I get up early enough, LOL! Their third period should start around 7 am in Turkey. So tonight I'm out, but we'll see on the 26th.
