Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.
That’s what the Capitals figured, any way, as they found themselves down a man on the penalty kill. But instead of shrinking, Nic Dowd lifted a gorgeous backhand chip pass across center ice and to a streaking Chandler Stephenson, who beat goalie Carter Hutton to make it 1-0.
Oh, and then Braden Holtby made this save:
It’s 1-0 Caps after two.
Third period ahead...
