Calgary Flames (8-6-2 18pts) v. Washington Capitals (10-2-3 23pts)

 

Game Recap:

In Washington the Capitals take on the Calgary Flames for the second and final time of the 2019-20 season, and after celebrating the Washington Nationals and their World Series Championship victory it would be the Flames crashing the party after a poor Dmitry Orlov pass was picked off by Matthew Tkachuk and he would quickly pass it to Andrew Mangiapane who would get it past Ilya Samsonov for the early 1-0 lead. However, the Capitals would respond in kind as Evgeny Kuznetsov would utilize his speed to generate an odd man rush and feed Jakub Vrana for the tap in to tie the game at one. The with less than five minutes left in the first period Dmitry Orlov would rip off an outlet pass to keep it in the zone and Jakub Vrana would let one rip to score his second of the game to give the Capitals their first lead of the game, but right before the buzzer went off to end the period the Flames would strike when Elias Lindhold would deflect a point shot past Samsonov with two seconds left in the period to send the game into the intermission tied 2-2.

 

In the second period it would be a very back and forth period with not a lot of action, however, with five minutes left in the period Kznetsov would breakout Vrana who would collect his rebound and get it past Cam Talbot to collect his first career hat trick and retake the lead for the Capitals as they took a 3-2 lead into the second intermission.

 

In the third period the Capitals would get an early powerplay when Mikael Backlund would be called for tripping and near the end of the powerplay with their secind unit Tom Wilson was able to move the puck across the slot to Lars Eller who would roof it past Talbot to grow the Capitals lead to two. Then both teams would trade powerplay opportunities, but with the Flames on their second opportunity the Capitals would shut them down as they would take the 4-2 victory.
