Good morning, hockey fans. Thursday’s game between the Washington Capitals and Vancouver Canucks didn’t start until 10 PM and it didn’t end until Alex Ovechkin said it could.
So, this is weird. Jay Beagle and Jason Chimera combined again for an impressive goal, the first of the night but not Beagle’s last. The Canucks returned fire in the second as the Sedins outplayed Brooks Orpik below the goal line to set up Radim Vrbata. A glut of penalties in that period cost the Caps: the Sedins struck again, sneaking a shot past Holtby to give Vancouver the lead.
In the third, Jay Beagle got greasy to get the game tied again. Alex Ovechkin wouldn’t let it stay that way. He scored with five minutes left in rego to restore the Washington lead and win it.
Caps beat Nucks 3-2!

Not a perfect game, but at least a perfect result. Now go to bed.
