PLENTY of action in this frame!

Philadelphia’s Shayne Goestisbehere blasted home the first tally off a clean face-off loss by T.J. Oshie.

But rookie Travis Boyd brought the Capitals back, cutting across the circles to slide a gorgeous spin-o-rama assist to Alex Ovechkin who guided it home. The goal was Ovechkin’s 43rd of the season and Boyd’s first career NHL point.

Oskar Lindblom struck, too, with less than two minutes left. AND THEN SO DID FREAKING Wayne Simmonds, to make it 3-1 after two all of a dang sudden.

Third period ahead...
