The joy and agony of watching the Washington Capitals
The joy is watching a sublime 4 goal performance by Alex Ovechkin against the Tampa Bay Lighting. He started scoring when the Caps were down by 3 goals and finished by tying the game at 19:27 in the 3rd period after Ondrej Palat scored the go ahead goal for the Lightning at 8:36 in the 3rd. Ovie forced the game to overtime and the Caps won in the shootout. There are games when Ovie carries the Caps on his back and this was one of them, supported by his center, Nicklas Backstrom, who netted 5-points of his own.
