Caps Win, Season Starts

I missed the game, but it's preseason no big deal. Until I read the recap. The Caps came back from a 4-1 deficit to win 7-5 over the Flyers. Alex Ovechkin had 4 points and Thomas Fleischmann got the game winner in the third. I am kicking myself for missing that game.

Also the season is officially started, even though there are still preseason games still on the schedule. The Kings beat the Ducks in jolly ol' England 4-1. The game was delayed about 10 minutes at the start after the national anthems because the lights were slow to come on. The sold-out crowed seemed pretty into the game, standing during the fights, cheering for their teams and a plethora of NHL jerseys in the stands.

The stand out of the game was Los Angeles' rookie goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who nearly posted a shutout in his first ever NHL game. The two teams will face off again tomorrow, and will be broadcasted on Versus at 12 noon (for some reason only the local FSN carried the game).
