Nicklas Backstrom was clutch scoring the overtime winner as the Capitals exacted revenge over the Carolina Hurricanes. It was almost a carbon copy from the first preseason game the Caps played against the 'Canes. Except this time the it was Backstom's night scoring the overtime winner 3:36 into the overtime giving the Caps the win 3-2.
Mike Green also had a good game assisting Backstrom's game winner and scoring a tally himself. Based on game stats, it looked like Green and Shaone Morrisonn who both finished the game a +2. David Steckel got some playing time, while Chris Bourque and Jakub Klepis time on the ice was short. Maybe a sign to come on who is being sent back to Hershey. Viktor Kozlov also scored a goal for the Caps.
I missed the game but was able to see the Verizon Center's newext additions. A high definition scoreboard that was pretty cool to watch, video screens that wrapped around the stadium's teirs. The whole look was pretty cool to see. It should add to the experience at the Phone Booth.
