Game Recap – 11/11/2019 – Arizona Coyotes v. Washington Capitals

Arizona Coyotes (9-6-2 20pts) v. Washington Capitals (13-2-9 29pts)

 

Game Recap:

The Washington Capitals break out the retro reds as they play host to the Arizona Coyotes. In the first period both teams would start the period with some very close chances but both Antti Raanta and Ilya Samsonov would be up to the task. Then much later in the period the Capitals would take the first penalty, but the Coyotes would not strike until after the powerplay had concluded as Vinnie Hinostroza would throw the puck on net and Clayton Keller would knock in the rebound to take the 1-0 lead. The Capitals would get a powerplay opportunity, but they would not be able to capitalize on the opportunity.

 

In the second period the Coyotes would strike twice in 45 seconds as Christian Fischer would score his first of the season, after an officials review, 12 seconds into the game, and then 33 seconds later Michael Grabner would take advantage of a TJ Oshie turnover to go on the breakway and put it five hole on Samsonov for the 3-0 lead. However, the Capitals would finally respond as Evgeny Kuznetsov would break past the Coyotes to score and cut the deficit to two. With 29 seconds left the Capitals would draw a powerplay, and would start the third period with the extra man.

 

In the third period the Capitals would not capitalize on the powerplay opportunity to start the period, but after a bad icing call for the Coyotes, Kuznetsov would score his second of the game to cut the Coyotes lead to one. The Capitals would get another powerplay opportunity, but the Capitals would once again waste another powerplay. Then late in the third with Ilya Samsonov pulled the Capitals would tie this one up as TJ Oshie would knock in the loose puck to tie the game at three.

 

In overtime the Capitals thought they would have it won on a TJ Oshie marker, but the Coyotes would challenge for offsides on the play, and the Coyotes would win the challenge forcing the game to continue. Then in the shootout the Coyotes would get goals from Nick Schmaltz and Conor Garland to win the game 4-3.
