The Caps surprised just about everyone with an incredible third period in which they tied the game. On a Sunday afternoon Lars Eller (with an assist by goaltender Braden Holtby) sealed the game with a 5-4 OT win!!
Evander Kane seemed unstoppable with a hat trick but that didn’t actually stop the Caps!!
The Caps never gave up.
Nic Dowd scored first for Caps and Jakub Vrana got on the board with a goal in the second and third period. TJ Oshie kept the Caps to move into OT.
Some head shaking about Evgeny Kuznetsov’s play, or lack of.
Alex Ovechkin has been team captain for 10 years and we like it!!
Lars Eller is still a Caps hero!!
This is a team where every player contributes to its success!
