Forecasts of snow, March Madness brackets and another Capitals loss. I like one of those three March-themed things, but unfortunately we all received the other two as well.
First period? Nada.
Corey Perry capitalized on a Lars Eller turnover and walked both Karl Alzner and Braden Holtby to slot home the first marker of the game. Perry lit the lamp again on a tip-in and Rickard Rakell made it 3-0 quickly after. John Carlson then broke Jonathan Bernier’s shutout bid with a power play goal and we’d end 40 minutes 3-1.
A Ryan Getzlaf power play goal made it 4-1, but seconds later Marcus Johansson scored to cut it to 4-2. Ryan Kesler, 5-2.
Ducks beat Caps 5-2.
