Capitals vs. Oilers Third Period Thread

New, comments

The Capitals penalty kill is so good if it were any better it would be called bourbon and fresh uni. Nicklas Backstrom caught a four minute double-minor for high-sticking Oscar Klefbom and making him...cry, I guess? A bloodless revolution begat a bloodless revolution as the Caps killed the whole thing without incident.

Despite a great shift by Marcus Johansson and his linemates, the Oilers still lead the shots by a bunch, 23-14. The game doesn't feel that far apart, though, partially because the Caps lead in hits 19-7 and in blocked shots 16-5. Still 0-0 after the second in D.C.

Capitals Hill is the voice of our generation:

Third period ahead...
