It’s over. We did it. The boys are hittin’ the road with a W.
Alex Ovechkin got the scoring started with a power play goal 3:07 into the game. Unfortunately, the Kings responded less than two minutes later to tie the game. Brett Connolly continued his hot streak with his fourth goal in four games. Once again, the Kings answered quickly with a power play goal. The game remained tied heading into the second period.
The second period started out pretty dang rough for the boys in red. They gave up a goal to Oscar Fantenberg in the first minute, but then…things shifted. Maybe we all switched seats, or prayed to the hockey gods, but the Capitals got the next THREE goals to recapture the lead. There was a goal from Evgeny Kuznetsov to tie the game back up at 3-3. Our sweet boy, Christian Djoos scored a wild goal. It’s his first goal of the season after a 61 game drought. Jakub Vrana brought the Capitals up one more before the end of the period.
A rebound dumped in by Copley from Austin Wagner, his second goal of the evening. Evgeny Kuznetsov put the final biscuit in the basket. It was truly a NIGHT for Kuzy.
Caps beat Kings 6-4!
