What a game! I was terrified in those first few minutes. The Caps were flat, skating on their heels, and completely out of rhythm. With no shots, a goal by Sidney Crosby, and a timid goalie, it looked like the Caps weren't showing up to play. But then the Caps found their rhythm, and it was the Pens who were terrified. There were lots of unnecessary mistakes made by the Caps, but incredible penalty killing. They managed to put together a few outstanding plays that made all the difference. Caps 3, Pens 2. A HUGE win.
