The Washington Capitals have been almost powerless during the man advantage this series. Thirteen opportunities had come and gone with just one goal to show for it.
Early in Saturday’s brawl at Nassau, the Islanders were well aware of Washington’s power outage. The Isles committed two penalties and killed them with ease.
Then Isles captain John Tavares got busted for slashing and John Carlson finally made his team pay.
Tavares was found guilty for this naughtiness near the blue line.
Most of that power play was ineffectual until a late chance– just seconds before the period buzzer.
Brouwer drove into the zone and loosed a shot. Ovechkin got the rebound and fed it PPQB John Carlson. Carlson knew he had to shoot and shoot he did.
Now, let’s flex.
