Capitals vs. Flyers Third Period Thread

New, comments

The Capitals started the period on a fruitless 5-on-3 that quickly became a screw job 5-on-3 for Philadelphia.

A questionable hook, and the far more egregious high-sticking double minor assessed to Nicklas Backstrom for a stick that wasn't his, were a big hill to climb.

The Capitals killed it, and then.....

NICK BACKSTROM SAID I'LL SHOW YOU HIGH STICKING, firing home a beauty high over the glove of a moving, sprawling, mortal Michal Neuvirth.

The Caps lead 1-0 heading into the third period. Let's do this.

Third period ahead...
