The Caps got a lead early in the third. How, you ask, implicitly, by reading this article, and here is your answer:
A Marc-Andre Fleury own goal!

Please print this article out, put the paper in a mortar and pestle, chalk it up into a fine powder, then inject it into your veins.
The top line buzzed around the net, but Fleury seemed to have the puck covered. Tom Wilson remained up in the goalie’s face, and I guess that presence was enough to mindfuck Fleury into making a mistake. Pulling his skate back, Fleury kicked the puck into his own net.
The lead was immediately lost as Ryan Reaves got a one-timer from the paint.
