Jet Lagged

Capitals 3, Bruins 4

It’s good to be back and it’s good to actually see an entire game in as many days. Just wish the outcome was better. The Caps played well, but were not able to stop the Bruins late charge. And it was on “national” television. I can’t wait for NBC to start broadcasting games.

The Caps put together a great game including doing better on the power play. But after the spectacular goal by Alex Ovechkin, the Caps just laid down, and allowed the Bruins to tie the game late in the third and win in overtime. I guess that 13th win is harder to get than once believed.

Overall Grade: B-

Wash Post gets the basics down on the game. Some highlights: Ovechkin scored his 21st goal, Mathieu Biron scored 3 power play goals in three straight games, Olaf Kolzig was outstanding in net with 39 saves. Brendan Witt played in his 600th NHL game, all of them with the Caps. Lowlights: the Caps were held below 20 shots on net, and were out shot 3-0 in the extra period.

Now that I am back, I am off again across the country to Tucson. So it’s my second last post of the year. Yeah for you!
