Game Recap – 10/12/2019 – Washington Capitals v. Dallas Stars

Washington Capitals (2-1-2 6pts) v. Dallas Stars (1-3-1 3pts)


Game Recap:

Coming to Dallas the Washington Capitals look to avenge their overtime loss to the Stars back at home earlier this week, and a good start the Capitals would get as Joel Hanley would get a double minor for high sticking Jonas Siegenthaler and the Capitals would utilize the powerplay to their advantage as Tom Wilson would score his second of the season to make it 1-0 Capitals. However, Dallas would challenge the goal claiming that there was a hand pass on the play, but after reviewing the play the officials deemed that there was no hand pass and the Stars would be assessed a delay of game penalty as a result. The Capitals would take a pair of penalties near the end of the first period, but the Stars would not be able to capitalize.


In the second period the Capitals parade to the penalty box continued with two more penalties to start the period, but the penalty kill was up to the task to shut down the Stars. However, the Capitals would respond in kind as the Stars try to break out of their zone but it would be John Carlson picking off the outlet pass to keep it in the Stars zone and would do a tic tac toe play with Garnet Hathaway to lead to Carlson’s second goal of the season as the Capitals take the 2-0 lead. The Capitals would take two more penalties, but the penalty kill would be up to task once again to shut the Stars down and keep the 2-0 lead heading into the second intermission.


In the third period the Capitals would get an early powerplay and Nicklas Backstrom would spring Evgeny Kuznetsov who would fly into the Dallas zone and shoot the puck between Anton Khudobin’s legs to make it 3-0 on the powerplay opportunity. But the Stars would show some life as Radek Faska would be able to execute the wraparound and get the puck past Ilya Samsonov to cut the Capitals lead to two. Then with less than a minute left in the game Alex Ovechkin would hit the empty netter to give the Capitals the 4-1 victory.
