Four minutes into the second period, the Capitals faced what seemed like an insurmountable three-goal deficit. Instead of giving up, they calmly chipped away at the Stars’ lead. Eric Fehr responded one minute after Jason Spezza’s goal ,then Andre Burakovsky tallied a sweet power-play goal ten minutes later to bring the Capitals within one.
It was a sick snipe.
Burra’s goal unleashed a raucous celebration in the crowd among Capitals fans in attendance. Like take a look at this guy in the Varly jersey.
He’s raising the roof… or was he? (He totally was.)
@ianoland I think he was doing "Air Hi-Fives" to other groups of Caps fans. Not sure if that's an upgrade.

@ianoland I felt so much secondhand embarrassment for that guy.

@ianoland He is at the game alone and he is awesome.
