Don't screw up this time...
End of 1st. Caps 1, Rags 1.
What a horrible, horrible start. No due or die, but sit back and wait. The score should've been 1:4. Caps got really lucky. After Semin has scored a flucky goal, Caps finally got into their flow. Wake up Caps! Opporknockity tunes, but only once. Go out there and give everything. Don't screw up this time.
Not much from Ovie in the first, he is -1, no shots on goal, no missed shots, no blocked shots, ice time 06:49, average shift 01:08, 1 hit. Of course, 3 Rags players are after him, but it is normal by Ovie's standards. Gotta do something, Ovie, gotta do something!
Caps had only 2 shots on goal, Rags had 8! Caps have slight advantage in faceoffs wins, 53%.
End of 2nd, Caps 1, Rag 1.
Caps are doomed? It's close to it. For a long stretches of time Caps looked like they were killing penalties, but it was 5 on 5. Caps couldn't even throw the puck out of their zone. Rags are playing with reckless abandon and this is what Caps did in the previous two games. Now the teams have changed their roles.
Ovechkin: -1, ice time 14:01, average shift 01:04, 2 shots on goal, 2 blocked, 1 hit, 2 giveaways, 1 blocked shot.
History teaches us nothing.
End of game 7. Caps 2, Rags 1.
Whew. Caps are really lucky to have a hockey legend, the one and only Sergei Fedorov.
He is the oldest player in the entire history of the NHL to ever score a game 7 game winner.
I think he also topped the list of game winners in playoffs, something like that.
Rags lost, but they can be proud.
