1-0 Caps The Capitals dominated the Rangers for the entire first period and to no surprise the score was reflective of that. Washington’s first goal was one that should have been stopped by Henrik Lundqvist. I think it is the first time we have said that in this series. Anyway, the Caps were doing a good job pressuring us in our zone prior to the goal. The puck kicked out along the walls to Chris Kreider. Kreider was facing the goal line and had two Capital players in front of him and one coming from behind. He had to get rid of the puck, but unfortunately he rushed a backhand pass diagonally right to Alex Ovechkin, who was up high in the zone just below the blueline. Ovie just rifled a shot in off of Hank’s glove. I thought Hank had a good look at the shot. He wasn’t screened and the shot wasn’t tipped by Boyle, who went for the block.  Still, it’s hard to hate on Hank, since he did rob Ovie on that deflection during their first power play and many more times throughout the game. Oh well.
