Capitals Vs. Senators: Caps Don't Capitalize On 5-On-3 Advantage, End First Period With Senators In Scoreless Tie

The Washington Capitals' power play has been powerless to help them so far this season. In the first period against the Ottawa Senators Wednesday, the power outage continued.

Despite an almost two-minute long two-man advantage, the Caps did not score and are tied at 0-0 with the Senators after 20 minutes.

Jason Chimera gave the Caps a prime opportunity when he drew two penalties at the same time as Craig Anderson tripped him after Sergei Gonchar interfered with him.at 11:10. The Caps had nearly two minutes to work with up two men, but only mustered three shots on goal.

Even with no goals to show for their efforts, the Caps had 15 shots on goal as they created turnovers which led to a few scoring chances on the rush. Washington also held Ottawa to just six shots, all of which Tomas Vokoun stopped.

Alex Ovechkin leads the Caps with four shots on goal.
