Nope, you weren’t dreaming. The Caps really did get multiple fortunate bounces to score a goal in double overtime against the Blue Jackets and pull back to within one game in the best of seven series. Lars Eller scored the game winner to cap off a strong fifth period performance for the hockey club from DC.
The Caps out-shot the Jackets 35-31 at five-on-five and also got the better of the shot attempts, 76-62.
The Caps played well again and, this time, they were rewarded for not shooting themselves in the foot repeatedly. They will look to even up the series Thursday night in Columbus.
