Here’s the deal: we’re gonna talk about this game, but we’re not going to talk about the part that matters until the very end. Got it? Good.
The Capitals beat the Rangers. It was a tight one. Very tight. You know how it is.
The first period came and went without a goal, but we got a nifty Jay Beagle goal in the second to make up for it. The Rangers attacked Klendathu in the third period, but the Capitals goalie had the answer for everything, and so….
Caps beat Rangers 1-0!
Caps lead the series 2-1!
BRADEN HOLTBY SHUTOUT!!!

Braden Holtby, the scourge from Saskatchewan, turned away every Rangers shot sent his way– more than thirty of ’em. He’s one of the best, I keep telling you guys, but you’ve been made cynical by Theo and Varly and Neuvy. Come back to the land of the limitlessly hopeful, Caps fans. Braden Holtby is the savior, literally.
When Ovi can’t score and Brouwer will never score again, you need the backstop to play inhuman hockey. Tonight we got inhuman hockey from Braden Holtby.
You can’t see me right now, but I’m standing up, applauding.
Good win, Caps.
