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 thingsâ€¦and don’t forget to check out Capitals Outsider box score. Look at my photos below or on flickr.
