Thursday’s date between the Nashville Predators and Washington Capitals was a low-key, low-shooting affair punctuated with some punches until an exciting three-on-three session ended it.
With a turnover by Nashville in their own zone, Brett Connolly secured his 15th goal of the season. In the second, with a turnover by Washington in their own zone, James Neal (ugh) tied the score at one. Tied after sixty, we went to overtime, where Viktor Arvidsson ended it with a 2-on-1 goal.
Preds beat Caps 2-1 in overtime.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day. I remember Mike Vogel once calling the holiday amateur hour for drinking, and it stuck with me. I’m Irish, but I’m gonna stay home and cook food and do puzzles in Zelda, so you guys have fun and be safe!
