Shoot, it Went to a Shootout

Neuvirth Watches

WASHINGTON, DC – November 3, 2010:  Washington Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth (#30) follows the puck after making a save against the Toronto Maple Leafs during their NHL ice hockey game at Verizon Center.

In an uneven performance against the skidding Toronto Maple Leafs, the Washington Capitals scraped out a shootout win Wednesday night. After a 3 goal outburst in the second period, the Capitals gave it all up and more in the third before Alex Semin scored a nifty powerplay goal to tie it all up at 4…and then he scored the shootout clincher after overtime.

Something I haven’t seen mentioned elsewhere yet (I could have missed it) was how Tomas Fleischmann’s stick went flying into the crowd in the first period. During the TV time out that followed, linesman Brian Murphy assisted Fleischmann exchange another stick with the fan for the one that went flying.  Flash scored with that stick in the second period.  Maybe Fehr should take some notes?

It may also be worth noting that Colton Orr looked like he was having too much fun during his prolonged fight with DJ King.  Or maybe he just likes fighting so much he can’t help but smile?

You don’t want to read about the game here. Many others like Russian Machine Never Breaks, Japer’s Rink, On Frozen Blog and all the usual suspects have already done it…and probably done a better job than I could do right now.As long as you’re here, and probably the only reason you’re here, is to look at the pretty pictures.  See them below or on flickr.
