Stephenson to the top, Vrana to the 3rd (guess they don't have the manpower to bench him, right now)...

Holtby and Murray in the nets...

Really good chance already, great pass from Ovechkin behind the net to DS-P, Murray up to the challenge...

icing Caps, 16:19 left 1st... 15:56, scrum no calls... and 15:34, Orlov to the box, tripping...

15:30 Hornqvist to the box, hooking- we're 4 on 4... Caps PP now... killed...

Pens almost turn it over, Caps are offside on it, and DS-P CRUSHES Dumelin... sotn (stat of the night)- a Holtby win gets him to 200, the 2nd fastest EVER (behind Ken Dryden)...

9:58 left 1st, TV timeout.

9:34 the gloves are off- O'Brien and Reaves, easy win for Reaves, LO never got a swing in...

8:19 left 1st, Pens have 2 SOGs so far (Caps have 6)... another great chance like the first one, this time Wilson ro Vrana to Murray... 6:59, Malkin to the box for tripping, PP time...

too much passing again... "deflection, score!" Carlson shot, off a Pen!

1-0 Caps!

Sheary a breakaway, Holtby save, Cap in the box (Wilson) for a slash, 4:54 left 1st...

after 1:21, Carlson clears... killed, Pens still have it... another great chance just like that first one, this time Stephenson to Eller to Murray...

1-0 Caps, end 1st. Very good period, except for the refs- all 4 calls were really weak. Really weak.

Assists on the goal, Kuznetsov and Ovechkin...

stats after 1:

SOGs 9-7 Caps
Hits 15-8 Caps
Blocks 5-5
Gives 3-3

Faceoffs 15-10 Caps

all in all, a very good period. Much better start than I expected.

Almost another immediately, but this time Djoos deflects it right into Holtby's chest- if he hadn't Hagelin would have had an empty side to put it in...

8:33 left 2nd Holtby covers for the TV timeout.

7:56 great save by Murray on Ovechkin... another good Pens' shift, Holtby covers at 6:31 left...

5:50 left, Letang to the box for 4:00- high stick, and a crosscheck on the delay... first 2:00 killed... 1:26 PP left, Caps ice it... not much on this, finally a Carlson shot...

Oshie the deflection with :01 left on the PP!

2-1 Caps!!

2-1 Caps, end 2nd. Fast period.

Stats:

SOGs 21-16 Caps (attempts 38 each)
Hits 24-13 Caps
Blocks 10-10
Gives 13-6 Caps (yikes! sloppy period, indeed!)
Takes 6-5 Caps
Faceoffs 57% Caps (25-19)

Need a little more 5 on 5, but still a good 40:00.

15:44 Bowey to the box for a very weak crosscheck call... killed...

13:33 left reg... 10:56, fast whistle as the puck is loose in front of Murray...

10:32 left reg, a TV timeout.
