Marchand busts in on Holtby, but whiffs it (looked like Holtby had the position anyway, but who knows?)...

Eller! on a beautiful play, but it's challenged for offside... good call, no goal...

Holtby big pad save at 17:36... 17:03, a chance to get that "goal" back on a delay of game PP...

first SOG on it, Boston, who leads 4-1 to this point... couple of chances but killed, and stoppage at 14:52...

13:29 it's PP time again... nothing on it, pretty sad effort this time...

Bruins come in tap- great pass between a sliding Dman's legs tap- Holtby over to the other side of the net to cover and save.

TV timeout at 9:34 left 1st.

Chara (playing his 1400th tonight) gets post, but no goal... Holtby poke check save on Bergeron wide open in front of the net... now good possession at 7:02, but Khudobin is ready...

5:56 a long delayed PP coming, again for the Caps... after :57, they skate 4 on 4... now the Bruins' PP... killed, back to ES...

Caps get control... Vrana turns on the jets...

1-0 Caps! Great goal! 2:26 left 1st.

1-0 Caps, end 1st. Only assist was Niskanen.

Stats after 1:

SOGs 13-11 Caps
Attempts 24-18 Caps
Blocks 4-2 Bruins
Hits 13-6 Bruins
Takes 3-2 Caps
Gives 6-6
Faceoffs 55% Caps (12-10)

Looks pretty even, but I though Boston had a much better period overall.

Scoreboard, crowe. Scoreboard. But, then...

PP times- Ovechkin 4:40, Connolly 4:23, Backstrom and Kuznetsov 4:13 each, Carlson 4:02...

and nothing to show for it. Sad.

2nd on... the thing I've noticed tonight is the "bangers"- Wilson and DS-P- have been invisible. Maybe that's because of all the PP time.

16:29 left 2nd, here's the Bruins on the PP... uh oh...

15:38, it's 1-1.

5:56 or so, Orpik hit in shoulder by a hard shot, heads for the bench... Stephenson to the box for a hook at 3:11 left 2nd... killed, stoppage at 1:02 left...

:32.8, a Bruins shot off the crossbar goes out of play, Marchand pushes Orlov, and a struggle ensues... matching minors for crosschecking...

2-1 Caps, end 2nd.

Stats after 2:

SOGs 24-16 Bruins (Caps had 3 this period)
Attempts 46-32 Bruins
Blocks 9-6 Caps
Hits 24-15 Bruins
Takes 7-6 Bruins
Gives 14-10 Caps
Faceoffs 60% now Bruins (24-16)...

stats say all Bruins, but...

scoreboard, crowe. Scoreboard.

6:40, back to ES... 4:49 Holtby covers as the Bs congregate, but this after another really dominant Caps' possession shift... TV timeout...

and at 3:40, it's now 4-2 on a deflection in front of Holtby...

EN at 2:47... 2:12 the goal is occupied again for a faceoff... EN again now... 1:52, puck out of play... Kuz was on the bench telling the coaches to put Chiasson back on the ice for his next shift...

1:29, Ovie clears with a pass off the boards that doesn't connect...

ENG!!!!!

1:12 left, Eller to the box for holding... 1:06 big glove Holtby... :53.5, out of play...

:26.4 it's 5-3 on the PPG, but under review for goalie interference... good goal...

:18.6, Caps are offside...

5-3 Caps, final!!!!!
