Game Recap – 10/5/2019 – Carolina Hurricanes v. Washington Capitals

Carolina Hurricanes (1-0-0 2pts) v. Washington Capitals (2-0-0 4pts)


Game Recap:

The Washington Capitals look to keep their winning ways going as they play their first game of the season at home against the Carolina Hurricanes. For the majority of the first period the Hurricanes would generate chances against the Capitals, but Braden Holtby would stand tall in net for the Capitals. Then late in the period Garnet Hathaway would pick off a poor pass attempt by Joel Edmundson and then drive to the net to score his first as Capital and to give them the 1-0 lead heading into the first intermission.


In the second period the Capitals would still have some time to work on their first powerplay opportunity, but would not be able to convert. Then they would gain another opportunity when Jordan Staal would be called for tripping, but again could not convert on the powerplay. However, midway through the second it would be TJ Oshie who would bat the puck down and then get it past James Reimer to give the Capitals a 2-0 lead after an Official review. The Capitals would try to make it 3-0 off another potential Hathaway goal, but after a Coach’s Challenge it was ruled that Brendan Leipsic did in fact interfere with Reimer, and the goal would not count as a result.


Then in the third period Radko Gudas would take an interference penalty and the Hurricanes would finally get their powerplay on point as Erik Haula would tap in a Teuvu Teravainen pass past Braden Holtby to cut the Capitals lead to one. The after killing off a Tom Wilson penalty, the Capitals would have a breakdown in their own zone and Jaccob Slavin would capitalize by getting the puck past Holtby to tie the game at two. Then in overtime the Capitals would dominate with 7 shots on goal and a powerplay opportunity, but were unable to capitalize. However, for the Hurricanes they would only need one shot to win it as Jake Gardiner would wrist a shot past Holtby to win the game 3-2 in overtime.
