Niskanen out tonight (undisclosed injury), Chorney in again...

damn- Carlson sloppy turnover slow across the front, 3 feet in front of Holtby.

1-0 Carolina at 14:39 left 1st.

13:21 before I can get a slice of pie from the kitchen, Caps score!

1-1 Chiasson, sweet pass from Stephenson, but so far NHL has unassisted... 8:50, Holtby gloves and a timeout.

4;14 Orpik hits Pesce from behind, and Pesce crushes Holtby- he makes the save, no call (good call)... 4:00 post! behind Holtby, but no goal...

now at 2:44 Orpik to the box for a boarding... and good when they had to be. Nice kill.

2-1 Caps, end 1st.

Couple screwups but a decent road period and a lead.


Stats after 1:

SOGs 13-7 Carolina (at one point it was 6-5 'Canes)
Attempts 23-12 Carolina
Blocks 4-1 Caps
Hits 16-6 Caps
Takes 9-3 Carolina
Gives 4-4
Faceoffs 75% Carolina (15-5)

Need to tighten up a little (well, maybe more than a little), but the lead should have them feeling good.

DS-P almost had a second goal that period on a sweet pass from Ovechkin, but the Dman juuuust got a stick on the pass and Ward barely got a shoulder on the shot puck to keep it out (I think it may actually have gone past Ward and got post, will have to see it a few more times)...

19:20 left 2nd, a wide open Staal... Holtby BIG save... next shift a few seconds later, pipe! Holtby save? (or both)...

14:30 icing Caps... 13:02 puck played with a high stick, and a timeout...

stats have taken away one of the Beagle assists...

11:13 Orlov shot, off the boards... rebound!!! Score!!! Orlov!!!

3-1 Caps at 11:12 left 2nd!!

10:16 Kuz to the box for a crosscheck... 8:45 they get one back after several saves by Holtby...

3-2 Caps.

Chorney had the only assist on Orlov's goal... Oshie a great pass just out of Vrana's reach for an easy empty netter, but it was out of reach because Vrana draws a hook and the Caps get the PP at 3:13 left 2nd... nothing on it...

3-2 Caps, end 2nd.

Stats after 2:

SOGs 21-14 Carolina
Attempts 41-29 Carolina
Blocks 8-7 Carolina
Hits 20-15 Caps
Takes 15-7 Carolina
Gives 13-4 Carolina (4-4 after 1, so the Caps tightened up the ship)
Faceoffs 58% Carolina (22-16, so the Caps went 11-7 in the 2nd).

Still an even game. Need a big 20:00 from the Caps' big boys this period- Ovie, Backstrom, Kuz, Oshie.

18:52 Kuz to the box for a slash... killed... 14:20 it's tied up as the Caps can't get control and the 'Canes work hard all shift.

12:56 it's 4-3 'Canes after a disaster of a shift from Bowey. Orpik actually batted it in.

Backstrom the assist on the goal... stoppage at 6:02... under 4:00 left reg... 2:20... delayed call against Wilson at 2:12, 1:55 it's on the PK for the rest of reg...

Holtby save right off the bat... several saves...

OT with the 'Canes with :06 of 4 on 3... 4 on 4 now... shot from Staal goes off Holtby's mask, stoppage for the strap, and it's back to 3 on 3... Aho... post!...

Ovechkin!!!!!

Caps win 5-4!!!!!
