Capital Moments That Mattered
Breaking down the goal that won the dang Cup
The division race may not be close, but last night's Caps-Isles game was, with teams trading a series of blown coverages until Ovechkin could score the late winner.
Alex Ovechkin's second goal on Saturday gives us some insight into how the Barry Trotz Caps are going to play at even strength.
A couple of breakdowns - in discipline and in coverage - cost the Caps a regulation win and an exceptional streak of penalty killing success.
With the Capitals and Flyers renewing their rivalry on Friday night, a late first period goal by Nicklas Backstrom broke a scoreless tie... and there was plenty more where that came from.
