Game #34 Recap: Caps 2 Boston 3

After an awful start the Caps left themselves a 3-0 deficit by the end of the first period. Washington just didn't look ready for the start to the game and the Bruins took it to the Capitals. As bad as the first period was the Caps settled down and got back into it with a strong second period and a goal from Matt Bradley who tried to get some energy going in the first when he dropped the gloves. The Capitals dominated the third period, pumping 26 shots on goal. Karl Alzner scored with a little over 5 minutes remaining and the Caps looked posed to breakthrough but just couldn't get the tying goal. The losing streak climbs to 8 games and the Caps head off to Ottawa for a game with the Senators tomorrow.

Of Note:
  • Mike Knuble played his 100th game with the Capitals and his 920th of his NHL career.
  • Matt Bradley scored his 3rd goal of the season and picked up his 500th career penalty minute and his 500th shot on goal with the Caps.
  • The Caps were 0 for 1 on the power play and faced no power plays against.
  • Michael Nuevirth took the loss stopping 18 of 21 shots in the game.
  • Alex Ovechkin, John Carlson, Matt Hendricks and David Steckel picked up assists on the two Capitals goals.
