Senators Vs. Capitals: Ottawa Takes Control, But Washington Still Leads 2-1

The score after two periods is still 2-1, but the Ottawa Senators definitely had the edge in momentum in the middle frame against the Washington Capitals.

The Senators outshot the Caps 12-4 in the second as they took advantage of Washington's sloppy play. Tomas Vokoun's steady goaltending kept the Caps in the lead.

Ottawa has scored 10 of its 13 goals in the third period this season, while Washington has blown a third period lead in each game this season. It should make for an interesting final 20 minutes.
