The Caps played their second game in as many nights. They started good, but didn’t end so good.
The first period was a total snooze fest on TV (when my home had electricity). The Caps came out strong again, dominating in shot attempts. The second period featured a Schmidty fight but no goals. Then in the third period, the figurative dam broke in the desert. The Coyotes struck twice on deflections, 27 seconds apart. Later, Brad Richardson put a bow on it.
CAPS LOSE 3-0.
Let’s do GIFs because I ain’t got time for clever bullets after midnight.
In the second period, Nate Schmidt (yes, that Nate Schmidt) dropped his gloves and got in his second career fight after taking a high hit from Max Domi. I’m 100% sure Nate’s ribs will be sore tomorrow.
3rd 05:18 Shane Doan (Asst: Max Domi)
3rd 05:45 Oliver Ekman-Larsson (Asst: Alex Tanguay, Antoine Vermette)
3rd 13:58 Brad Richardson (Asst: Max Domi)
Despite the final score, the Caps played well and probably should have won this game. At least we have this.
