The Penguins have evened the score with the Capitals at 2-2 in after two periods of play in Washington. In other news, this Pittsburgh fan seems to be quite taken with Washington's coach Bruce Boudreau.
And really, who could blame her?
Sidney Crosby got the scoring started five minutes into the first period with his fifth goal of the playoffs. The Capitals answered with a goal from the Dave Steckel before Alexander Ovechkin put them ahead with a goal off on a two-man advantage. Mark Eaton scored the equalizer midway through the second period, setting up what should be a dramatic finish over the final 20 minutes.
Thanks to reader Lawrence for the screen grab.
Update: Tomas Fleischmann just scored to give the Capitals a 3-2 edge in the early minutes of the third period.
Update II: The Update Returns: The Caps hung on to win 3-2. In about five minutes my entire neighborhood will be filled with red-clad people honking the horns of their SUV's in celebration on their way back to Northern Virginia.
