Hey, we lost again. But at least we got a point! There was some good in the game, I promise. I actually went into this game confident, half from the way we played Thursday and the other half because the Capitals was one of three teams Marty Turco was undefeated against (3-0-0).
Some of the good, was that the Stars did manage to get a point, as I said before. The Stars also started the scoring first, Sean Avery finally got his first goal as a Star. I must say, it was well deserved and well played. He’s growing on me, a little bit. The Caps made it 2-1, then with 10 seconds left in the first period, Brunnstrom got his 5th goal of the season on the power play. Good boy Fabbity Fab! Then, in the second, the exact same people scored again for the Caps, to make it 4-2. BJ Crombreen got his first goal a little under 16 minutes into the second. Loui Eriksson made it 4-4 under a minute into the third period, only to have the Caps score again. So with one minute left, we pulled the goalie (which makes me extremely uneasy) and Modano got one past Theodore to tie the game. Only to have the Caps score in overtime with a very stoppable wrist shot. What sucks is that there was a defenseman in front of Turco who could’ve at least tried to stop the puck, but just stood there and watched it go in. *sigh*
There was good, despite the score, I promise we played better. lol It’s just kinda sucky that it had to end that way. We’re still building though, so hopefully more good comes our way.
What sucks? Is that out of 6 Capital goals none were from Ovechkin. That makes me extremely sad.
