Game Recap – 11/7/2019 – Washington Capitals v. Florida Panthers

Washington Capitals (11-2-3 25pts) v. Florida Panthers (7-3-4 18pts)

 

Game Recap:

In Florida the Washington Capitals look to extend their winning streak to five against the Panthers, and the Capitals would strike quickly as John Carlson would strike to make it 1-0 for the Capitals, but the Panthers would respond a little over a minute later as Frank Vatrano would score his fourth of the season to tie the game at one. The Capitals would get a powerplay opportunity, but would fail to convert. Then the Panthers would strike late in the first as Brett Connolly would score his sixth of the season against his former team to take the 2-1 lead.

 

Then in the second period the Panthers would strike again as Aleksander Barkov would score 27 seconds into the period to grow their lead to two. However, Brian Boyle would get called for slashing sending the Capitals to another powerplay, and this time the Capitals would strike as Alex Ovechkin would score his 12th of the season to cut the Panthers lead to one. Then six minutes later after killing back to back penalties, Ovechkin would strike again to tie the game at three. The Capitals would get a powerplay opportunity, but were unable to strike on the powerplay, and then would get into penalty trouble themselves as on their second penalty Evgenii Dadonov would strike to retake the lead for the Panthers heading into the second intermission.

 

Then in the third period it would be Tom Wilson getting the Capitals back on the board as he would tip an Evgeny Kuznetsov shot to tie the game at four 44 seconds into the period. Both teams would trade powerplay opportunities, but neither would be able to capitalize thus sending the game to overtime. Then in overtime Braden Holtby would make a huge save and the Capitals would turn it around as Tom Wilson would score his second of the game to win the game 5-4 11 seconds into overtime.
