The Washington Capitals lost their must-win game, ending their season with a 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, losing the series 4-1.
If this ever seemed close, that was just a mirage.
It’s Game Five and the Caps are down in the series 3-1. Caps gotta win, it’s that simple. Do all your lucky things, drink a lucky drink, do a lucky dance, whatever you need.
Puck drop is at 7 PM, Pete has your recap.
Well, the Washington Capitals are on the brink of elimination. The Caps couldn’t find a win in Boston, dropping Game Four by a score of 4-1. They will return to DC trying to save their season.
The Bruins outshot the Caps 37 to 20 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 41 to 32.
The Washington Capitals were pathetic in Game Four, hardly putting up a fight as the Boston Bruins steamrolled their way to a daunting series lead.
Marchand and Pastrnak scored power-play goals in the second and third periods, respectively. Scant seconds after Pasta’s goal, Charlie Coyle finished off a big rush goal after a Brenden Dillon turnover. Alex Ovechkin scored a bit later, and that was nice, but then Matt Grzelcyk shot back with their third power-play goal of the night.
Caps lose. Bruins lead the series 3-1.
It’s Game Four and the Capitals are down 1-2 against the Boston Bruins. I don’t think the Capitals have looked horrible, but some adjustments need to be made. One of them should be the game ending in regulation. It’s not surprising, but we simply cannot keep doing this.
Puck drop is once again at 6:30 PM. Wish I could give you an end time but, nope! I really thought having the 6:30 PM puck drop last time would give me the opportunity to go to bed early but…nope! Pete will have your recap.
The Washington Capitals have now found themselves in a 2-1 series hole as they could not find a way to an overtime winner for the second game in a row against the Boston Bruins. Game Three ended with Boston on top 3-2.
The Bruins outshot the Caps 43 to 37 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 63 to 55.
The Washington Capitals are now down 2-1 in their first-round series against the Boston Bruins after another careless play in the defensive zone.
Wednesday, Ilya Samsonov and Justin Schultz miscommunicated behind the net allowing Bruins forward Craig Smith to pick up the loose puck and score easily on a wraparound. The goal, which came 5:48 into the second overtime, gave the Bruins’ a 3-2 victory.
Meanwhile, the goal left Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin fuming at the bench.
