Happy Halloween, y’all! While you were out dressed as Donald Trump and acting like you were the only one to come up with that idea, the Caps were playing a sloppy first period in which they registered just five shots on goal.
Early in the second, Jussi Jokinen put the Panthers on top with a ground ball up the middle, a play in Alex Petrovic got an on assist after almost having his foot chopped off by an Alex Ovechkin slapper.
First-liner Jay Beagle got the Capitals tied with a net crashing goal that was totally legal.
The game went to three-on-three overtime and Evgeny Kuznetsov got it done. Caps top Cats 2-1!
The Panthers were the better team tonight and probably deserved to win. BUT THEY DIDN’T!
Let’s end on an adorable note. I’d like to congratulate Yoshie Nathan and his wife Natalie on the birth of their first child, a son who may or may not be part reptile. We’re so happy for you two and we’re glad everyone is healthy. Also, RMNB offers no paternity leave. Please edit this post, Nathan.
Just a few hours old and already perfecting the Yoshi tongue. That's my boy! pic.twitter.com/yMsNyoVEIq
