Those plucky Capitals
When I sat down to watch the Washington Capitals @ the Montreal Canadiens tonight, this wasn't quite the scoring summary I was expecting:
Considering Alex Ovechkin has 15 of the team's 49 goals so far — nearly 31 per cent of the team's output, the highest percentage of any player in the league — it's odd not to see him there. Then again, we are only nine minutes in.
1st Period Washington 0:23, Brian Sutherby 3 (Jamie Heward, Matt Bradley) Washington 5:54, Brian Willsie 3 (Steve Eminger, Jeff Halpern) Washington 9:20, Brooks Laich 1 (power play) (Jakub Klepis, Tomas Fleischmann)
