New, comments

The return of Kuznetsov, and goals from Ovechkin and Devante Smith-Pelly lead Washington to a 2-1 series lead.

Look, I grew up watching Wheel of Fortune with my family/adopted grandmother, but while I have a soft spot for it, that opening was too long, and not terribly interesting.

I am SO UPSET that I missed The Save, and Eller's crazy good game. Hopefully he'll have another good game tonight.

First Period

  • Damn it MAF, why must you save that.
  • DON'T BREAK KUZY AGAIN.
  • Uhhhhhgggggg Devo.
  • Please do not let them score here...please...
  • Thank you boys.
  • Wow do you instantly know when Ovi has the puck in Washington.
  • Caps definitely looking better right now, which definitely means this is going to end terribly.
  • The beginning of the game was so exciting, and then everyone got uber careful.
  • Now I'm a little bored. It's the Cup final. It's not supposed to be like this...

Second Period

  • FLURY IS WAY OUT OF THE NET. HOW DO YOU NOT SCORE ON THAT.
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER. OVI HAS OUR BACKS.
  • And now Washington is flying.
  • Larry doing all the little things right.
  • Except that shot going wide...
  • THERE ISN'T ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT SHOT. KUZZZYYYYY.
  • Kuzy doing the eagle celly right after Cherry made a stink about it is gorgeous.
  • Ovi and Larry celebrating on the bench was priceless
  • Devo, please stop.
  • Ahahah good on you, Nisky

Third Period

  • Damn it, Braden.
  • Finally they call a penalty.
  • Ok guys. You gotta capitalize.
  • Oh no. Oh be ok Holtby...
  • DEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
  • Oh my word that was a GOOFY goal.
  • That was not boarding why?
  • And there goes MAF. Low key screaming here.
  • Where are all the Capitals power plays that should be coming here
  • And now a time out...screaming much less low key right now...
  • And now I can breathe.
  • CAPITALS WIN 3-1 AND TAKE THE SERIES LEAD.

Highlight of the Game

Nothing wrong with Kuzy's shot.
