Your Washington Capitals finished up a stretch of four games in six nights with a matchup against the visiting Anaheim Ducks. Goaltender John Gibson has carried the Ducks through this first portion of the season and he starred in this one too.
Derek Grant has two first names and one first period goal against the Caps. After twenty minutes the visitors held a one-goal lead. Jakob Silfverberg doubled the lead with a deflection on the man advantage. In the third, Nicklas Backstrom got the Caps on the board and Evgeny Kuznetsov tied the game.
Then, in overtime, Alex Ovechkin won the whole dang thing.
Caps beat Ducks 3-2!
