The Washington Capitals gave the city of Pittsburgh their first disappointment on Super Bowl Sunday by defeating the Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin-less Penguins 3-0. Despite the victory, there were several scares for the Capitals. In the first period, defenseman Mike Green took a puck to the side of the head and late in the third period, former Capital Matt Cooke took a cheap shot at Alex Ovechkin with a knee on knee hit.
As usual, others like Russian Machine, Japer’s Rink, and On Frozen Blog, have much better write ups because they’re good with those word things…and don’t forget to check out Capitals Outsider box score. Look at my photos below or on flickr.
