With game 1 in overtime, the B’s skated by, beating the Capitals’ 1-0, but there is no doubt that they have their work cut out for them. When a pane of glass fell, bringing David Krejci to the ground, some wondered if it was a bad omen.
As the team celebrated Chris Kelly’s winning goal, no one was prepared for a player to be injured after the game was over! Wondering how it happened and what kind of serious injury was inflicted, fans were relieved to hear Coach Claude Julien describe the incident as a “fluke accident”, claiming that the only resulting injury was a sore neck.
So on to game 2 they went, Krejci front and center. Although there was certain hope as Thomas made 37 saves and Benoit Pouliot tied it up in the second period with his first career playoff goal, there would be no post-game celebration for the black and gold this time around. The Capitals’ took game 2 in double overtime, 2-1, tying the series.
Game 3 is scheduled for this Monday in Washington at 7:30 (ET).
