Game 45 Recap: BRUINS 1 CAPS 2 WELL THAT WAS A BIT DISSAPOINTING

In the first period, the two teams moved it back and forth across the ice, and it was pretty exciting. Nothing too crazy happened on either end. A couple of penalties got killed.

The second period begins, and the Caps take a penalty. Savard, Hnidy, Chara, Kobasew, Savard, net. They work it around really well and then Savard gets another high short-side goal, from the wide, wide angle.

1-0. You're excited.

As it turns out, so is everyone else, because Mike Green finds a way, on a PP going the other way, to be completely invisible to the whole Bruins D. They let a pass through and it's Green vs. Thomas. Green wins.
1-1.

And then near the end of the second, we find out it's true - Ovechkin is a dirty hitter.
Nice knee-to-knee. Luckily, Wideman came back into the game.

Despite excellent play from both teams, Alexander bongo-drummer Semin rifles one over Thomas's shoulder after St. Pierre can't bury it.
1-2.

That would prove to be good enough.

Loss.

Random Thoughts:
  • The Bruins haven't been able to win in Washington at all this year. In between losses @ Washington, the Bruins had a 7-game away winning streak.
  • The Bruins are also very good at home, it will be interesting to see what the two upcoming Caps@Bruins games look like.

vs. WAS: 0-2-0
Record: 33-8-4 (L1)
Away: 16-5-3 (L1)
L10: 7-3-0
January: 5-3-0
GO BRUINS!

Speaking of editing, which game were you watching?

I don't remember Ovechkin playing for the Sens. But I bet the No Habs No campaign wishes he did.

I get the senators and the capitols confused *shrug* I'm just dumb, no worries.
