Second period thread.

NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Washington Capitals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Plenty of action - and maybe a few tears - in the first period of this one!

First of all, Jay Beagle returned to Washington, and it was as emotional as you’d expect a good dog coming home to be.

But at least T.J. Oshie scored the puck (and himself!) into the back of the net, courtesy of a secondary assist from Alexander Ovechkin. The goal made the Capitals 1-0 leaders at the break, and Ovechkin THE ALL-TIME RUSSIAN NHL POINTS LEADER!!

Second period ahead...
