Game Recap- 3/10/2019 Winnipeg Jets v.s. Washington Capitals

Winnipeg Jets (40-24-4 84 pts) v.s. Washington Capitals ( 41-21-7 89 pts)

Game Recap:

The Washington Capitals concluded their short two game home stand tonight against the Winnipeg Jets. Tonight’s game was a battle between a pair of forty win teams that are currently leading their respective divisions. Washington got on the board first as a result of a Nicklas Backstrom goal from John Carlson and Michal Kempny. Shortly, Winnipeg would tie the game up on a goal from Mathieu Perreault. The Capitals eventually killed off a pivotal 5 on 3 Power Play after committing back to back penalties. The first period would end with a 1-1 tie between the two teams. In the 2nd period, the Capitals took the lead as Carl Hagelin came out of the penalty box and scored on a beautiful lift pass from Nic Dowd. The Capitals would take a 2-1 lead going into the 3rd period. The 3rd period became very interesting as there was a coach’s challenge by Winnipeg to determine if the puck had crossed the line for a goal after an emphatic no goal call by the referees. After further review, the call would stand as no goal. The Capitals killed off a penalty with 2:35 left in the game after a Dmitri Orlov tripping call. Lars Eller then sealed the game with an empty net goal from Tom Wilson and Dmitri Orlov. The Capitals currently are on a 7 game win streak and close out the short home stand with a 2-0 record.
