Toronto A One Point Night for the Caps on HNIC

Well another not so fun night for Caps fans. The Caps didn't play horribly but they didn't play great either. In the end, Vesla Toskla had a solid game and a "flukey" goal got by Semyon Varlamov so the game ended regulation tied 1-1. In overtime the goaltenders continued to be tough and that too ended with the score knotted at 1 all. Then it was time for the gimmick and well the Leafs won with 2 goals in 3 attempts (Phil Kessel and Nicklas Hagman) while the Caps didn't score at all - Eric Fehr broke a stick and Alexander Ovechkin missed the net.

The goal scorers in regulation - for the Caps it was Alexander Ovechkin #16 on the season off a really awesome setup pass from Mike Green. For the Leafs the goal was credited to Nicklas Hagman as it bounced off his arm last.

In my pregamer I missed the fact that Mike Knuble is still out as well as everyone else I had on the list. Man will I be glad when some of the guys start coming back and the roster starts to stabilize again...

Next up Ottawa at ScotiaBank Place on Monday night.

We have seen what the future of the Caps without Alex Semin will be. Low scoring losses! An abysmal power play unit. I have calculated the power play unit in games without him has scored a total of 1 goal and given up two shorties. (Okay, the shorties were during his last absence.)
