Seems like a better link, nut once they cut away, I have to refresh the screen or I'm stuck on "We'll be right back" (English for letting the idiots KNOW there's a commercial break in progress)..

Game on...

5:00 in, I'd say these two teams still don't know each other- they're playing, there's good stuff and bad stuff for both, but there's still a tentativeness to the game...

Grubauer is in net, and his right post saved him on a great shot by Marchessault.

Wow, Stephenson beats Fleury with a great shot! 1-0 Caps.

Stephenson!

This guy is on fire this week! Might be the spark this fire needs come April.

Yes, what a week for Stephenson! He looked great in last game too, although he didn't score (but had at least one big chance). He's showing some self-confidence.

This is gonna take a few to type...

one time at Piney Orchard practice rink, Jagr after practice let the air out of the tires of Craig Billington's Mustang. Biller's trying to use fix-a-flat on 4 tires, and Jagr's telling him "Yeah, work as hard as I do, and you could afford to call a tow."

After that goal WOW BEAGLE , they showed a shot of Stephenson on the bench, and that look on his face was all brag "Yeah, if you guys worked as hard as I do, you'd score once in a while."

Priceless.

Knights send a puck past Grubauer, but Beagle saves them!

Wow, slow motion shows the puck had almost crossed the line.

Some Knights had already raised their arms, I believe. It sure looked like it would go in.

Strange that the action was not reviewed.

LOL at Jagr's joke and Stephenson's grin. Yes, he does look like that. He's feeling great. Good for the Caps.

Vrana is playing, so who got scratched?

Carpenter redirects a shot by Frenchman Bellemare, 1-1!

Oshie's goal the other night got him out of the "Can't buy a goal" box... now Bura has the disease.

Don't wanna look at stats. I don't think stats will be the game this afternoon- this is a little pre-playoffs chess match so far.

Alan May is happy with the Caps' play in the first period, but let's not forget the Knights also hit iron once, and Beagle's save was actually worth a video review. Could be 3-1 Knights right now.

Ok, I lied.

Attempts are 19-14 Knights, SOGs 10-8, and the Caps are only 33% on faceoffs so far.

Maybe just a little bit Knights so far.

Carpenter's goal was his first of the season (third of his career). The primary assist went to Bellemare, of course, and the secondary one to Schmidt (his 19th this season). Schmidt leads the Knights in time of ice so far in this game. He is already in a career season in goals, assists and points.

Of course.

I thought stuff like that killed these boards long ago.

But, then, we don't have a lot of international bragging rights on this side of the ocean right now, do we?

Geesh. The idiots that run this world.

Savage planet.

Ok, the last :25 of that actually was a power play...

Niskanen!

And another dominant shift by Kuznetsov like the one he had Friday.
