Capitals Vs. Bruins, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 6: Late Washington Goal Ties The Game At 2-2 After Two Periods

The Washington Capitals have seized momentum in the second period in Game 6 against the Boston Bruins

Boston had a golden opportunity early in the period after Alex Ovechkin had a nasty high stick on Zedeno Chara, giving the Bruins a four-minute power play. The Bruins couldn't convert, allowing the Capitals to gain momentum.

The Capitals outshot the Bruins 15-5 in the period, but stellar play from Bruins goalie Tim Thomas has kept the Capitals from gaining an advantage. He has stopped 23-of-25 shots faced.

Washington finally got a breakthrough late in the period when Jason Chimera scored his first goal of the playoffs with just 42 seconds left in the period.
