Capitals Vs. Penguins Score Update: Washington Evens It Up With Two-Goal Second Period

The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins are tied at 2-2 after two periods at Consol Energy Center. The Capitals cut the Penguins lead in half a little over twelve minutes into the second period. Brooks Laich beat Marc-Andre Fleury for his ninth goal of the season. With four-on-four play, Dennis Wideman took it behind the net and fed Laich in front who in turn quickly poked the puck into the back of the net. Pascal Dupuis lost his stick during the four-on-four shift and the Caps were sure to keep the puck on his side of the ice.

Washington evened it up at 2-2 on an Alexander Semin goal, his 12th of the season. After the Pens turned it over trying to get too cute on a two-on-one play, the Caps raced out the other way in transition. Alex Ovechkin brought the puck to the center of the ice and dropped it on the stick of Matthieu Perreault, who put a quick wrister on Fleury. The shot led to a big rebound in front and Semin came in to clean it up with a quick backhand to tie it up.
