Live from Capital One Arena, It's Saaaaturday Night! The capitals host the buffalo halls tonight and all you need to know is that Alex Ovechkin continues to score because he is a cyborg.
A bit of a messy start with a penalty from Michal Kempny and a goal from Jack Eichel . With a few goals from comrades like Brett Connolly and Jakub Vrana the capitals held the headquarters in the second period.
In a strange way, kind of feeling, the second period began just like the first period. An early Michal Kempny penalty set up for a Jack Eichel goal (but this time it was a power play goal). I do not like this version of "Groundhog Day". After a goal from Sabers, the wire took too little until they jumped into the only force that can not be stopped. And Alex Ovechkin slap shot. The game should enter the third period of 3-3.
It was a third period. No goals, despite the fact that the capitals lead in shots under Rule 35-21
overtime will overtime goes. We go to a shootout.
- Oshie does not put the cake in the basket.
- Eichel does not put the cake in the basket.
- Kuznetsov puts the cake in the basket.
- Thompson did not put the cake in the basket.
- Backstrom does not put the cake in the basket.
- Middlestap puts the cake in the basket.
- Ovechkin puts the cake in the basket.
- Pominville did not put the cake in the basket.
Caps hit Sabers 4-3 (SO)
- After a little oopsie from goalkeeper Carter Hutton Brett Connolly and Devante Smith-Pelly took advantage of the blunder and got the capital on board. It was Connolly's 7th goal for the season and his sixth point in his last six matches.
- Devante Smith-Pelly picked up a milestone with his help on the Connolly goal and counted on his 100th NHL career.
- Jakub Vrana got his tenth goal for the season!
Jakub Vrana makes his 10th goal for the season. He is now four goals shy to surpass his career no more than 13 times last season.
