Caps win, yield road ice advantage to Rangers

Still trying to figure out how the Caps are getting it done after watching the Rangers dominate them in their own end all night.  Caps took a couple of stupid penalties, got real lucky as the Rangers hit a couple of pipes, and got bailed out by Braden Holtby’s

excellent play and Ovi’s game winner.  G8 only logged 13:36 in ice time but pumped seven shots on goal; impressive productivity, but can this model of keeping your star guy on the bench work for the duration???  Anyway, good to see Holtby rebound after a very ordinary effort in game one,  and good to see the Caps play a disciplined end game with the Rangers net-minder pulled.

So the road warrior theory advances.  Let’s put a stop to that and Rock the Red at Verizon on Wednesday!  LET’S GO CAPS!
