2012 NHL Playoffs, Capitals Vs. Bruins Game 2: Washington Nets First Playoff Goal, Leads 1-0 Entering Third Period

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.
