2012 NHL Playoffs, Capitals Vs. Bruins Game 2: Washington Wins 2-1 In Double Overtime

The Washington Capitals have evened their 2012 Eastern Conference opening round playoff series with the Boston Bruins at one game apiece after a 2-1 double overtime win Saturday at TD Garden.

Nicklas Backstrom scored at 2:56 of the second overtime on an assist from Marcus Johansson.

Braden Holtby was tremendous in goal for the Capitals. The Washington youngster stopped 43 of the 44 shots faced in Game 2, giving him 72 saves on 74 shots in the series.

Much maligned Alexander Semin played terrific defensively for the Capitals, particularly in the overtime periods. Fellow Russian Alexander Ovechkin shook off a pedestrian Game 1 to contribute offensively (three shots on goal, one blocked shot) and defensively (five hits) in Game 2.

The Bruins and Capitals will meet again on Monday in Game 3, when the series shifts to the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.

The Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins are headed to overtime for the second game in a row, tied 1-1 after three periods in Game 2 of their opening round 2012 Eastern Conference playoff series with the Boston Bruins.

After Washington entered the period leading 1-0, Boston evened the score at the 12:13 mark of the third period, as Benoit Pouliot scored on Caps netminder Braden Holtby as Holtby left the crease to poke check the puck away. It was only the second goal Holtby has allowed on 59 shots in the series.

Alexander Ovechkin has rebounded from a tough Game 1, and though the Russian has yet to score in Game 2 he has displayed an excellent balance of aggressiveness offensively and defensively, taking three shots, having one shot blocked and delivering four hits through 60 minutes of regulation play.

It took until late in the second period of Game 2 of their first round 2012 Eastern Conference playoff series, but the Washington Capitals finally have their first goal of the playoffs.

Troy Brouwer crashed the net and was able to chip a puck past Boston netminder Tim Thomas with just over two minutes left in the second period, given Washington a 1-0 lead entering the third period of Game 2.

Braden Holtby has again been tremendous between the pipes for Washington, stopping all 22 Boston shots faced in Game 2. The Capitals goal was the first surrendered by Thomas in the series.

2012 NHL Playoffs, Capitals Vs. Bruins Game 2: Washington, Boston Scoreless After First Period

The Washington Capitals showed no ill effects from their 1-0 overtime loss in Game 1 of their first round playoff series with the Boston Bruins, coming out aggressive in Game 2 and managing multiple scoring chances though no goals in the game's first twenty minutes.

The two teams were chippy again, tussling early and often. Zdeno Charra provided Washington with their first scoring chance less than two minutes into the game, getting sent to the penalty box for hooking Alexander Ovechkin. The Caps mustered five shots on goal but did not score on the power play. Washington also failed to score on the power playe 11 minutes later after a Chris Kelly hooking call.

Mike Green returned the favor midway through the period, giving Boston the man advantage. Washington held Boston scoreles, and the Capitals are now five for five on penalty kills in the series.

Braden Holtby continued his stellar work in net for Washington, stopping all 10 shots faced in the first period. Of course, Boston goaltender Tim Thomas has been equally as good in the series, turning away all 26 Washington shots faced in Games 1 and 2.
