Bruins – Caps is one of those matchups that you don’t quite want to see. Good thing is that this season series is now 2/3 over!

First Period:

Early on, Zdeno Chara took Tom Wilson aside and let him know that he wasn’t taking his shit.

Lars Eller thought he scored but the Bruins video review team knew otherwise and spotted the offside Capitals player (it was Brett Connolly) so the game remained scoreless with NO GOAL joining Washington.

Later on, though, Jakub Vrana put the Caps on the board for reals this time late in the period.

Capitals took a 1-0 lead into the intermission.

Second Period:

Early in the second, Jakub Vrana went to the penalty box for holding Brad Marchand’s stick (#B2BAfterDark). Patrice Bergeron figured it was the perfect time to capitalize on his error. Note that Alex Chiasson submarined Bergy just after he let the puck rip.

This wouldn’t last. Nicklas Backstrom scored his own PPG after Charlie McAvoy was called for hooking.

Brad and Dmitry Orlov got into a scuffle at the end of the second.

At least it became matching roughing penalties.

Caps 2, B’s 1.

Third Period:

We can’t have nice things.

Alex Chiasson scores twice to make the score 4-1. David Krejci and Bergy score garbage time goals with Khudobin pulled. In between those, Alex Ovechkin scores an improbable empty netter. Bruins lose by 2, 5-3.

Remember when we couldn’t even score on Holtby? Well, we can do that now. Someday, the Bruins will win against the Caps just not yesterday.
