Capitals Vs. Bruins Final: Washington Earns Huge Win Over Boston, 4-3

The Washington Capitals withstood a late flurry from the Boston Bruins to emerge with a much-needed 4-3 win and two points. Alexander Semin had a goal and assist in the game, and Tomas Vokoun was stellar in net, especially in the third period when the Capitals goaltender stopped 12 of the 13 shots he faced. For the game, Vokoun made 30 saves on 33 shots faced.

Dmitry Orlov added two assists for Washington, and Matt Hendricks, Brooks Laich and Jay Beagle nothced goals for the Capitals. The win keeps Washington in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, where they currently hold the eighth spot.

The Bruins made it close late in the third period on Johnny Boychuk's fifth goal of the season, but Vokoun turned away multiple good looks for the Bruins in the waning moments to secure the win for Washington.
