The Caps beat St. Louis in a much more entertaining fixture than their last. It was a very good game against a very good team (let’s just forget about those last few minutes).
The scoring opened with a dart from Russian forward Alex Ovechkin that gave the Caps a 1-0 lead late in the first. That was all we had after one. Russian forward Ovechkin scored again 5v5 this time with a blast past Carter Hutton. Russian forward Vladimir Tarasenko immediately responded less than a minute later for the Blues making the score 2-1 and the period closed with that scoreline. Russian center Evgeny Kuznetsov made it 3-1 off a fantastic feed from Russian defenseman Dmitry Orlov. Russian forward Ovechkin finished off his hat trick soon after to make it 4-1. Not-Russian Alex Pietrangelo scored a garbage time power play goal to make it 4-2. Russian forward Tarasneko added one with the goalie pulled.
Caps beat Blues 4-3. That was gr8.
