Capitals vs. Penguins Second Period Thread

The drama lasted all of 35 seconds as Alex Ovechkin scored on the Caps’ first shot to reach the 1,000 point mark and pass Maurice "Rocket" Richard on the all-time goal-scoring list. Fittingly, the primary assist went to Nicklas Backstrom, who has assisted on so many of Ovechkin's goals.  After one, Caps lead, 1-0.

Second period ahead.
