Third Period Open Thread

For 19+ minutes both teams lamented wasted opportunities. Then Brad Marchand got caught diving and Tim Thomas got caught overly aggressive, tie game. 20 minutes left, win one period.

Bruins PP converts, Caps PP spins the wheels, both teams have a deflected point shot goal. 40 minutes left for the Caps to turn things around and hopefully close out the series.

Second Overtime Open Thread

I think my heart might explode. It would be nice if the great chances for the Caps came from the top two lines rather than the bottom two.

Two teams played classic road periods, but the Caps played it slightly better. A Troy Brouwer goal has the Caps nursing a one goal lead with twenty minutes to go. Let's see that Dale Hunter lock...

A good road period has the Caps tied at 0 after the first period, but at some point the Caps will need to score on the PP if they want to a) make the Bruins think twice about being D bags, or b)...

A sweet shot from Backstrom put the Caps up 4-0. Don't worry about that goal against, I'm sure the Caps just lost focus wondering if they should tank to get the Rags in the first round.

Goals from the Captain, 4th line (?) center, and a PPG from John Carlson give the Caps yet another multi-goal lead to defend. That's not a terrible start. Second period ahead.

19:30 of great hockey had the Caps up 2, but late sloppiness has them on the verge of yet another blown multi-goal lead. Let's hope that 0-for-3 on the power play doesn't come back to bite.

The Caps scored 2 that period, that's good. But they let up 2 more, that's bad. They're in the same position they were in last intermission, with 20 fewer minutes to comeback in.

A Flyers 4th line goal against the Caps top line is the difference in the game. The Caps need a great 20 minutes to avoid back to back home losses.
