Backstrom the sole assist, the rest was all Ovie- up through the middle, deke left move right, and a wickedly quick shot back beasting McIlhinney to his right. When they talk about "goal scorer's goal" this will be up on the screen... I no sooner type that, and JB says "this is one you'll want to see and will see on the highlight reel"... he also says Caps are 7-1-1 when scoring first...

2:42 left 1st, Leafs offside... bad turnover by the Caps, Van Riemsdyk (I spelled this right without looking it up!) fortunately misses the net... :55, Caps to the PP this time, puck over glass delay...

:49.1, Carlson stopped... faceoff...

Ovechkin again!! Oshie the sole assist... Holtby gloves an easy one at :21.5...

2-0 Caps, end 1st!!

Stats:

SOGs 11-7 Leafs ( :o )
Attempts 20-13 Leafs
Blocks 3-1 Caps
Hits 12-6 Caps
Takes 6-2 Leafs ( :o )
Gives 4-3 Leafs
Faceoffs 58% Leafs (11-8)

2nd on... 19:01 icing Caps... by the way, Ovie's second goal put him past Mike Bossy on the all time list, and tied Jagr for most active PP goals...

Holtby good save at 16:38... 16:05 faceoff, and the Caps get a PP out of it...

:06 PP left, not much on it- Hyman kept 3 Caps busy behind Holtby for about :20 of it... killed and a TV timeout as Holtby gloves at 13:53 left 2nd.

10:55 Leafs go offside... lots of mid-ice action, not a lot around the goalies although Holtby had another good save in close... Leafs offside and a break at 9:17...

Vrana breaks in...

3-0!!! Oshie and Niskanen the assists... puck in front of Holtby... Caps to the PP again as Carlson gets crosschecked down,,,

Backstrom great pass to Ovechkin, who can't get it clean at :48 left PP... Orlov to the goalie glove at :18 PP... puck out of play at :03 PP... killed...

2:19 Holtby gloves for the timeout after a big possession shift from the Leafs...

1:18 a DS_P shot gets deflected out...

3-0 Caps, end 2nd.

Stats after 2:

SOGs 22-17 Leafs
Attempts 33-33
Blocks 8-4 Caps
Hits 27-20 Caps
Takes 9-2 Leafs ( :o )
Gives 10-8 Leafs
Faceoffs 58% Leafs (22-16)

so except for faceoffs, Caps creeping back into the stats and continuing to dominate the physical play.

20 minutes more, boys.

Another dominant shift from the 17:30 mark for the Leafs... Caps look like turtles right now...

13:51, no one covers Zaitzev... but actually it was Chorney deflecting it in...

3-2 with tons of time left.

11:05 left, all the physical has gone out of the Caps...8:15 starts another completely dominant Leafs shift... 6:55 after a good possession, Caps called for a hand pass...

5:00 left reg... Matthews between the legs backwards, a great chance... finally a TV timeout at 4:25...

3:53, a shot deflects up and behind Holtby, no one knows where- it's on top of the net...

3:24 icing Leafs... 2:45 Chaisson gets iron, but not in... 2:05, Holtby covers as the Leafs' net is empty...

icing Caps at 1:33... Holtby gloves at 1:28... 1:15 icing Caps as Orpik's chance goes wide of the EN...

:45... :31 Holtby gloves again... :29.6 Holtby again... pass, pass, pass...

Ovechkin!!! Hat trick!!!

4-2 final!!!!
