In the game day preview, I predicted another exciting game and said I wouldn't be shocked to see us win, but it was another exciting classic tonight. We jumped out to a 3-1 lead, only to surrender 3 in a row and be down 1. I'm not gonna lie, I was losing my shit a bit. It looked like we were about to collapse, Spezza to the rescue. What a game he had, with 2 goals and 2 helpers.
Brian Elliott looked a bit sketchy on a few of the Caps goals but made some big saves down the stretch too. Erik Karlsson was a mixed bag, another game with 3 assists, including a great pass on the OT winner to Kovalev, but also took 2 penalties again that cost us. But the rookie will learn, seems we have something special. I admit it.
Thoughts from the game:
-Sure was nice to see Kovalev on the scoresheet again, esepcially with such a big goal
-Unfortunately the Thrashers and Rangers won, so we didn't clinch a playoff spot yet
-Theodore is awful
-Man can the Caps ever score
-Sketchy calls again tonight, about 3 high sticks missed that would have benefitted us
-5 wins in a row, man are we ever streaky
-Even in a different jersey, I sure hate Corvo
Thoughts on the game?
With his 4 points, Jason Spezza wins the night
