Rick Nash's first of the series put the home team up one at the game's midpoint, a 'nice tip' on Derick Brassard's point shot. At the other end Henrik Lundqvist kept the Capitals off the board with an excellent save on Alex Ovechkin's backhander, the goaltender perfect against the 15 shots sent his way. Washington will have to dictate the puck's direction in the final twenty, needing to drive the play from their offensive zone.
Your third period is straight ahead.
