Much more action in the second frame!
Alex Ovechkin redirected a blast from the blue line to put the Caps on the board, 1-1.
Your daily reminder: 90% of these redirects are completely intentional, and that shit is amazing. APPRECIATE THE SKILL YOU'RE SEEING!— Jason Rogers (@HeyJayJRogers) February 7, 2016
Dmitry Orlov caught a pass at the point, jumped around two Flyers defenders, and danced his way to the goal with more aplomb than Kevin Bacon. A wicked wrister from the circle made it 2-1 Washington.
Also, the Capitals power play is now 0-17 over their last five games, and Twitter was having some teary fun with that fact:
