New, comments

Despite a fast start, the Habs can’t outscore the high-flying Capitals.

Pre-Game thoughts:

Carey Price is in nets, while Lars Eller returns to remind me how much I miss him.

First Period

  • Noah Juulsen deserves better than Karl Alzner.
  • The Laval Rocket are looking better in this game than they did in the one they played this afternoon.
  • Remebering how well Scherbak is playing right now, is what will keep me hopeful over this lengthy off season.
  • Meanwhile, remembering that lovely unassisted Galchenyuk Goal, is what will keep me nervous and distrusfull of Bergevin over this lengthy off season.
  • Gallagher goal is called off as off side. A two goal lead againt the Caps was too much to ask for.
  • Carey Price has the turnover that leads to the the Capitals second Goal.
  • After a great start by Montreal, the Capitals are now dominating.
  • Tom Wilson now has two goals. Not much resistance from the Habs’ defence tonight.

Second Period

  • Beagle scored the Capitals fourth and Price is now looking a bit...frustrated.
  • Byron was just described as “not quite fast enough”, that is not something one hears often.
  • Montreal’s power plays probably make me more nervous than they do Washington.
  • Ovechkin is fun to watch.
  • HUDON! It’s 4-2 and there is hope going into the third.

Third Period

  • Early power play goal for the Capitals. It’s Kuznetsov’s second goal of the night.
  • Former Hab Jacob Jarabec’s shot is tipped in. It’s that kind of night.
  • HUDON AGAIN!
  • Ovechkin intercepts a Gallagher pass and Capitals come close to making it 7-3.
  • With just under three minutes, and Ovechkin in the penalty box, Montreal is able to capitalize, as Drouin scores.
  • Galchenyuk had a great chance.
  • Price is pulled for the extra attacker, yet the score remains 6-4 for Washington.
