The Washington Capitals fell to the Vancouver Canucks in a subdued Sunday afternoon game.
Alex Ovechkin opened up scoring with an Ovi Shot from the Ovi Spot, but then Elias Pettersen scored twice (once on the power play, once at evens) to put Vancouver in control. A late-second-period power play goal from Bo Horvat made it 3-1 entering the third period.
The Caps converted their second (!!!) power play of the day early in the third with Tom Wilson in the middle-man spot. A late-game too-many-men penalty kinda snuffed Washington’s comeback bid. The Canucks secured an empty-netter and that was that.

So, not a great game, but we got an Ovi goal out of it.
The Winnipeg Jets are coming to town on Tuesday I hear. I’ve been skeptical that this game will actually happen, but all signs point to a Nate Schmidt reunion. He’s with the Jets, right? And I trust they’ve been insulated from COVID due to lack of parks. See you then.
