Ovechkin fuels Capitals’ rally in Edmonton
Shawn Horcoff put Edmonton on the board first after a scoreless opening period. A Jeff Schultz turnover led to a breakaway for Patrick OSullivan.
Neuvirth stopped his attempt, but Horcoff was also behind the Washington defense and no one got back in time. Neuvirth got a leg on Horcoff’s shot but he had backed too far into the net and was beaten at 1:05 of the second.
Andrew Cogliano made it a two-goal lead at the 16:42 mark. After a long sequence in which the Caps could not get the puck out of their own end, Cogliano threw the puck at the net from along the goal line in the left corner. The puck hit Karl Alzner’s skate and fluttered into the net on Neuvirth’s short side.
Then came the Caps rally. It was the fifth time this season Washington has come back from a two-goal margin. This team is also now the fastest to 50 points in franchise history.
“It was good 20-minute game that we played,” captain Chris Clark said. “The first period wasnt bad, but the second was just something we won’t want to continue. In the third period I thought we were awesome tonight.”
