Game #27 Recap - Capitals 2 Maple Leafs 1

The Caps pulled out a 2-1 victory in Toronto last evening. It was an ugly victory but I'll take any road victory at this point. Unfortunately, Eric Fehr may have injured his shoulder. The injury situation is absolutely unbelievable. Defensemen Tyler Sloan was out with a foot injury so Sean Collins made his NHL debut. Now the Caps head to Carolina for a game tonight with the Hurricanes.

Of Note:
  • Karl Alzner scored his first NHL goal and assisted on the game-winner from Milan Jurcina. Alzner also recorded his first NHL hit.
  • Brent Johnson stopped 19 of 20 shots for the victory.
  • The Caps out shot the Leafs 30-20 and won 28 of 54 face-offs.
  • Micheal Nylander recorded an assist on the Jurcina goal.
  • Bryan Helmer blocked 5 shots and had 2 takeaways.
  • Alex Ovechkin had 7 shots on goal and 6 hits but was held off the score sheet.
