Caps 4 - Canadiens 2; A Two Point Night

Well that was a fun one to watch. Nice job by Michael Neuvirth staying alert and not giving up any softies especially in the first period when the Canadeans only had three shots but two were good ones that required a focused goalie staying alert. Neuvirth finished the night with a solid W having stopped 24 of 26 shots on goal for a SV% of 0.923. Nice job by Captain Ovie and Mike Green playing solid games - Ovie was especially responsible playing great two way hockey and led the team in hits with 6; Green had an assist and was +2 on the night. Eric Fehr scored the second Caps goal of the night and is now goal and was . Of course good game by the third star of the game Tom Poti and super game by the second star of the game Alexander Semin who had two goals and the first star of the game Tomas Fleischmann who had a goal, two assists, centered his line and was 67% in the face off circle winning 6 of his 9 draws.

Of course the best thing about tonight was it was a two point night and the Caps arrested their slide at three losses.

Next up Ottawa on Thursday at Verizon Center...
