The Caps came into Thursday’s Game Four in their series against Columbus looking to even things up. Thankfully, the Caps decided to spare us overtime in a strong performance from start to finish.
Top-line Tommy Wilson started us off with a blistering one-timer to the top corner.
In the second period, TJ Oshie finished a delightful flurry on the power play to extend the Caps lead to 2-0.
In the third, Alex Ovechkin gave the Caps some much-needed insurance, beating Sergei Bobrovsky five-hole. Then, Boone Jenner tipped a point shot past Braden Holtby to cut the lead to two. But Evgeny Kuznetsov would score an empty-net goal to seal the deal.
Caps win 4-1! Caps tie the series 2-2!

Monday night, after Game Two, Alex Ovechkin told reporters that the Caps would come back home tied 2-2 after dropping the first two games of the series. He repeated the promise at Tuesday’s morning skate.
Now, after Game Four, the Caps are coming back home tied 2-2.
Don’t doubt Alex Ovechkin.
