Finally, the Washingon Capitals finish a game in sixty minutes. But tonight’s soaring victory over the Montreal Canadiens nearly wasn’t such. Without Boyd Gordon’s brilliant short-handed goal early in the second period, the Caps might not have detonated the goalsplosion that followed.
Relying mostly on that 20 minute score buffet, the Caps easily bested the Nads 5-1. Caps take the series lead 2-1. Natch.
who was the goalie of record despite my protestations, was truly wicked. Only 27 shots made their way to him, but the savior stopped all but one. I don’t think anyone is expecting goalie drama for Wednesday night.
14 to go!
