Alex Ovechkin, the Left Wing, scored in the 17th minute on a power play with assist from the two Centers: Lars Eller and  Evgeny Kuznetsov. In the second period to tie the game up, after the New York Ranger took the lead in the first period, with Right Wing, Mats Zuccarello, scoring the goal getting assisted by Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad. The game was tie till the 3rd period. I don’t know what Brook Orpik was doing getting two penalties in the 3rd period. The first one was in the 15th minute with 2 minutes penalty for interference and in the 8th minute for holding. The game was already tough enough can’t be letting penalties like that stop you. That’s how the New York Rangers gets Power Plays and make the game easier for them.

The game was closed over in the 3rd period in the 7th minute and 49 seconds. Defense Man, Ryan McDonagh, scored a goal getting that nice assist from Rick Nash and Derek Stepan. Ryan McDonagh looks like a Defensive…geez…broo looks touugh. That was the game winner since the New York Rangers won 2-1. New York Rangers doing good this week with the exception of the New York Islanders lost. They playing tough now like grrrr.

Henrik Lundqvist, Ranger Goalie, had the most saves with 31 (.969 pct) while Washington Capitals’ Philipp Grubauer had only 28 saves (.933). Henrik Lundqvist ties Chris Osgood with 401 wins for the 11th most wins in NHL history for a goalie. New York in Hockey day in America on NBC pretty good on a Sunday. Looking good in a packed arena in New York City, Madison Square Garden.

Oooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooo. Game Time. Brainy Versatility.

Capitals can’t be Stopped at Home

capkings

Capitals are something else. I watched them on Sunday and they blew out the Kings. Now on Thursdays game, they are still dropping more than 5 goals a game. They score at least 5 goals in their last 10 home games. They won 11 games in a row and they are on fire. Ooooooo! Blow them out. If they played at home, they can’t be stopped. They going to dropped at least 5 goals on their opponent IF their opponent don’t watch out. I don’t know if its the team they are playing or how good the Washington Capitals are, but they are on the on fire radar.

10 straight home games with scoring 5 goals or more and they are setting records. Detroit Red Wings use to be good but today they got burned. They got “red-winged.” I guess. Alex Ovechkin didn’t even shot at the goal but the team was so good they drop six goals. Star player resting tonight. Rest Ovechkin. T.J Oshie scored two goals. The game was tie at the end of the 1st quarter but Capital did some work on the Red Wings. Red Wings scored 3 goals but still.

Capital won 6-3 and 3 players scored at least 1 goal with Oshie leading the goal scorers with 2 goals. Capitals needs to play at home more since the crowd helping them get some wins. They feel more comfortable at home. Capital handling their business with one of the best records in the league. Give it up to them. This game was one of the top game on Thursday, but the final score might not show that. The game was really over in the 3rd and final quarter when the Capitals score 3 goals to finish the Red Wings off. This game was good.

Sports and enjoyment. Brainy Versatility.
