Caps beat Maple Leafs 3-2

The capital was victorious north, tonight, while facing the Toronto Maple Leafs. A victory on the road feels very good. A quick first period resulted in no goals for either side. It was one of those periods where you felt you were watching an exciting tennis match. Great chances at both ends go back and forth with high speed and hard action. Braden Holtby looked like a gosh darn brick wall. Scoring began during period two when Alex Ovechkin nailed a power play goal home behind Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen. This was his 43rd season. Brett Connolly made a goal to bring Capitals up one by one layup from Tom Wilson. This was Connolly's 1 5th goal, which made his career high. The third period scoring started almost five minutes with a wraparound and rebound from Andreas Johnsson. But Johnsson gets away for Maple Leafs because Tom Wilson would blow right for him for a perfect short-cut goal. Caps beat Maple Leafs 3-2! That goal earlier was the 650s of Ovechkin's career. He made his 600th on March 12 last season against Winnipeg. There were Capitals & # 39; / Ovechkins 69th Season Games. This was Ovechkin's 60th match this season. So he has 50 goals in his previous 73 games. – Tom Gulitti (@TomGulittiNHL) February 22, 2019 Some great news on Brett Connolly in front, he has tied his career high for goals with his # 15 tonight.

  • Some great news on Brett Connolly in front, he has tied his career high for goals with his # 15 tonight. I think it is safe to say that I have a pretty good feeling that he may soon pass it. Don’t worry, I’m knocking furiously on wood.
  • Sometimes I get very confused from some jersey choice

  • Holy Holtby . Braden Holtby gave us some of the “save” feelings during the first period. He looked wonderful tonight.

  • ] I could not dry the smile from my face after seeing Tom Wilson makes a short-cut goal in his hometown. It was his second short-term goal for the season. Never Forget A Very Important Story From Steve Dangle:

  • Love the colors of the guys tonight! Accents are really in, I think!

] The capital slows down and returns to the Capital One Arena. Before the finals come back, they have to make a final stop in Buffalo, NY to face the Saber. Saturday at 13:00 we see you.
