Holtby a clumsy turnover early, but they escape... Burakovsky in, Stephenson out today...

The site is very slow today, so not gonna post much... Caps finally get an SOG on the PP at :39 left, but it's killed...

8:02 the Caps right back on the PP... 6:45 Ovechkin! NO- Connolly the tip!

1-0 Caps!

Another early period goal against at 18:42 left 2nd. They never seem to learn... lots of cycle, cycle, cycle, and then got caught on the line change with everyone dog tired.

Had a good post, but wiped it out- 2-1 Blues end 2nd, Caps being totally outplayed

Stats after 2:

SOGs 24-14 Blues
Attempts 46-35 Blues
Blocks 14-7 Blues
Hits 16-16
Takes 6-5 Caps yay
Gives 7-3 Caps
Faceoffs 67% Blues (24-12)

18:03 left reg Caps to the PP after a wicked good play and a delayed call...

nothing on it, very dull PP... 16:02 Hutton gloves as it expires... 15:54 icing Blues... 13:47 the Caps are offside and a TV timeout...

Caps get a PP OVECHKIN!!

New game, 2-2.

9:11 Eller scores to put the Caps ahead... 5:24 icing Caps... 4:49 puck out of play, after all that time right in front of Holtby again...

and at 4:09, a long shot from the blue line, a deflection that is reviewed for a high stick...

3-3.

Hutton covers, covers, covers... 2:06 left reg... 153 Holtby saves the game 1:47 he covers the next one...

1:34 left reg... 1:13 stoppage for a high stick on the Caps, back to the neutral zone... :54.2 faceoff...

OT as Holtby gloves a 3/4 rink shot... fast OT, under 1:00 ;eft, fairly exciting...

:43!!!! Backstrom!!!!

Controversial win, as one of the Blues slashed and lost his stick, no call...
