  • Recaps and other assorted musings on yesterday’s OT win from us, Vogs, Caps video (Caps365, Trotz, locker room), NHL, SI, NBC Sports, AP, WaPo, NBCSW (and again), WashTimes, RMNB, NoVa Caps, Dispatch, and The Cannon.
  • The Caps’ third period was not so good. OT was better, thanks to the leaders in the room stepping up - especially Nicklas Backstrom. [NHL, WashTimes, RMNB, NoVa Caps]
  • It also helped that they got some of the luck usually reserved for their opponents in the playoffs. [WaPo]
  • You really shouldn’t lie to the press, John Tortorella. [WaPo, NBCSW]
  • Apparently the Blue Jackets “enjoy” being so close to elimination. LOL. [Dispatch]
  • With Andre Burakovsky out for at least the rest of this round, Chandler Stephenson is stepping in to fill the void. [NBCSW]
  • Six-year-old “puck girl” Keelan Moxley had an evening to remember thanks to Ted Leonsis and Brett Connolly. [WaPo]
  • Alas, last night marked the end of the road for the Stingrays as they were swept out of the ECHL playoffs by Orlando. [ECHL, Caps Outsider]
