Game #41 Recap - Capitals 0 Bruins 2

The Capitals dropped a goose egg in Boston as they closed out the first half of the regular season. The Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas got his first shutout of the year with a little help from his good buddy the goal post. The Caps rang the iron 4 times, including 2 by Alex Ovechkin, but were unable to put on in the net. The #1 Cap killer over the last two seasons, Marc Savard scored a goal in the second period and Zdeno Chara scored on a 3-on-5 advantage for B's. The Caps were already without defenseman Tom Poti and they may have lost Brian Pothier as he left in the second period with an upper body injury. The Caps have now lost 5 straight games to Boston. The team has little time to regroup as the head into Montreal for a game on Saturday.

Of Note:
  • 16 of the Capitals 18 skaters recorded a shot on goal in the game. Brooks Laich and Milan Jurcina were the only two without a shot. The Caps out shot Boston 31-30.
  • Former Capital Glen Metrpolit recorded an assist on both of Boston's goals.
  • The Caps remained ahead of Tampa in the Southeast Division as the Lightning were downed by Montreal 6-3.
  • Olie Kolzig stopped 28 of 30 shots on the night and reduced his GAA to 2.99 on the season.
