Alex Ovechkin had a 2 point night. He was originally credited with the first goal of the game but upon scoring review it was noted that shot was tipped in by Brooks Laich. So the Caps first goal, which came at 9:52 of the first period, while the Caps had the man advantage, was changed to give it to Laich with assists from Ovechkin and Mike Green. The first period ended with the Caps leading 1 - 0.
The Caps also scored first in the second period. At the 18:31 mark of the second period, Tomas Fleischmann had a missed shot that was dug out from behind the net by Viktor Kozlov. Kozlov did a nifty little move to get the puck to Fleischmann. "Flash" then fired a 27 foot snapshot past Clemmensen to put the Caps up 2-0.
Before wrapping this up a special "shout out" to dmg of Caps Blue Line - since my friend Jim who went to the game is a Devils Fan, I have an extra Bruce Boudreau "bobblehead" that I'll gladly get to you somehow, if you still want it. Please comment and let me know. I'll need to get an email from you with your address so I can send it to you, too. Time for some sleep before getting up and heading for the Acela up to Newark Penn Stattion. Next up it's Deja Vu all over again today in Newark for OV and the boys in Red.
LETS GO CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!
