The Washington Capitals, like a luxury liner, sometimes take a while to get going. The Bruins had the best of them early on Thursday, but once the Caps accumulated momentum there was no stopping them.
Like I said, the Bs were in control early, and Jimmy Hayes’ power-play tip-in made the scoreboard reflect it. But before the first period was over, the Caps were stirring. Alex Ovechkin scored while falling to tie game at the close of twenty minutes.
The Capitals owned the second period, which featured Brooks Laich’s first goal this season, a tip-in off Orlov’s shot; and a perfectly executed 5-on-3 goal setup by Backstrom and finished by John Carlson.
Alzner sunk an empty-netter late because he’s a goal hog who only wants to inflate his personal stats.
Caps beat Bruins 4-1. Woot.
Bullets next, but first this little stud:

Joe B suit of the night
The Caps are good. They play hockey well and win hockey games. I like them and I like you. Sleep tight and have a happy Friday.
