Clyde's Shots: Capitals-Lightning, April 13, 2013

A little longer, a little more, a little delayed gratification. Kinda like the game. 62 Shots.

These shots were delayed a little bit because that happens sometimes. Hopefully, you will find them worth the wait.

Shot 3: Even the Sun lit up the Tampa net in the first.

Shot 6: A little blood.

Shot 7: Mike Green shot to Nate Thompson's shattering visor. Ouch. Just ouch.

Shot 8: And a little more blood.

Shot 13: Convergence.

Shot 14: Like Shot 4 a few days earlier, but different. And better.

Shot 16: So much of the fun is behind the play.

Shot 19: Like here. Matt Hendricks must have said something fun to B.J. Crombeen, because...

Shot 20: Crombeen dropped his gloves, presumably to shake hands and congratulate him for an insult well said, but Hendricks was content with just a stick tap.

Shot 21: This is where I focused on Crombeen's lonely gloves and stick and completely missed Jack Hillen's goal.

Shot 22: However, I did catch some of the celebration following the goal...

Shot 23: …and picked up Hendricks and Crombeen right where they left each other.

Shot 24: The red of Alex Ovechkin's jersey stands out among the white jerseys almost as much as the puck in the net.

Shot 28: Another Mike Ribeiro face.

Shots 29-33: Boredom with the same shots over and over may be leading to more experimentation with longer shutter speeds.

Shot 32: Karl Alzner was the man here.

Shots 40 & 41: Hendricks displays an appropriate reaction to the Lightning's second goal.

Shot 45: With each Lightning goal, the Capitals looked less and less happy.

Shot 47: The Lightning's Martin St. Louis had himself something of a night.

Shot 48: Such a night, in fact, that he seemed to have that gravity that thing under his thumb.

Shot 49: Nothing was going to hold him down.

Shot 50: No sir, nothing.

Shot 52: To think that could have been the defining shot of the game would have been forgetting Thompson's shattering visor.

Shots 56 & 57: No visors in the way of this shot.
