Interesting Trotz comments on Ovechkin...

Finally, "Old Faithful"...

http://www.rjh217.win/p/nhl-game.html?id=54784603&date=2017-11-22

And, after Trotz' comments in the article above, reports from Bumper's are that 8 and 19 are together tonight (OF tonight is not giving me the pregame show)... not only is it not giving me the pregame, it's now 7:15 and still not up- game has started.

Looking for another link... I'll try this:

3:00 gone, SOGs 2-0 Sens... 11:32 left, still 0-0 SOGs 5-2 (Ovechkin, Connolly) Sens...

just showed a graphic- penalties by period- Capitals with 31 in 1st (7th in League), 31 in 2nd (3rd), and 35 (most) in the 3rd...

just now 2 brilliant stops by Holtby, the only reason they win games... 8:14 left 1st, SOGs are now 6-5 Sens at the timeout.

Orlov a breakaway at 5:50... nothing... timeout at 5:30... 4:50 the Caps come in, it's broken up but Orpik gets it back, pass to Oshie, pass to Kuz who shoots, rebound out in front... Vrana juuuuuuuuuuuust gets a touch on it, and it slithers slowly into the net!

1-0 Caps!

Time running out in the period... Backstrom, fine pass to Chiasson... great pass to Ovechkin for the breakaway...

2-0!! :05.5 left 1st!!

2-0 Caps, end 1st!!

Stats

SOGs 11-11
Attempts 24-17 Caps
Blocks 9-3 Sens
Hits 11-7 Caps
Takes 2-0 Sens
Gives 8-3 Caps
Faceoffs 53% Caps (9-8)

A little sloppy in spots, but a 2spot up after 1... I'll take it so far.

Assists were Kuz and Orlov... 5:34 left 2nd, Sens to the PP this time...

3 clears, 2 big saves by Holtby again (both within 2 feet), 2 more clears, and killed- but, just after it goes back to ES... a pass from behind Holtby to the front, and a wicked snap shot.

It's 4-1. Now a scrum behind Anderson... Ovie, Backstrom for the Caps, 1 guy for the Sens- Sens on the PP again... Ovechkin started it with a high stick, the Sen high sticked Wilson, but then Backstrom went after him... now the Sens have 1:16 of 5 on 3, Wilson to the box... back to 5 on 4, great work... Holtby covers at :13 left PK, :22 period...

Holtby gloves at :06 and :15.4... killed and

4-1 Caps, end 2nd.

3rd on... Wilson clipped by an elbow to the face, no call again, and he's on the bench being looked at... 17:13 left reg the Caps are called for a hand pass... 15:57 some pressure from Ottawa, and Holtby struggles but gloves...

13:18 left, Caps still don't have a SOG this period (4-0 Sens)... Vrana finally with the SOG at 12:57... 10:42, the Sens have 6 men on and play the puck coming off the bench, no one sees it...

9:39 Anderson gloves after a good shift from the Caps, with several chances for Vrana... TV timeout.

Wilson is back... 7:14 the Sens score again, Holtby stops one, but it goes behind the net, Stone banks one off the net to then pass it back to the front, and Holtby can't get position in time.

4-2 Caps
