The Caps tied Game Four with a power play goal quite unlike the Caps power play goals you might be used to.
For example: Ovi didn’t do it.

Down a goal in the second period but up a man while Jake Guentzel served time in the penalty box, the Caps set up formation in the offensive zone. Backstrom held the puck along the boards, but instead of dropping it to Carlson or going skip-a-man to Ovechkin, Backstrom picked his spot perfectly. He threaded a pass to TJ Oshie in the slot. Oshie was ready.
With one touch, the puck was in the back of the net.
Jake Guentzel was not pleased.
Backstrom has 10 assists in these playoffs, whereas Oshie has four goals. Big performances from both.
