New post for the third period. Why? Simple, first post was not going well for the Capitals and Wordpress acted up as well. Caps trail the Thrashers 3-1, Thrashers have scored 3 unanswered goals. Caps played a horrible flat second period. Caps have been out shot in this game 22-15. Caps are 0-1 on the power play and are 3 for 3 on the penalty kill.
Big question for the Caps fans, what Caps team will come out in the third period?
3rd PERIOD CAPS 2 Thrashers 4
Caps had a power play chance and end with an 0-2 on the PP. Mike Knuble (1) takes a nifty pass from Alex Ovechkin to decrease the Thrasher lead to 3-2. Caps back in this thing. Caps go to the power play. Lets go Caps. Caps now 0-3 on the power play. 5 minutes to go, Caps trail 3-2. Thrashers score right off the draw to go up 4-2 by a goal off the faceoff by Fred Modin. Now the Capitals go to the penalty kill. Not good.
FINAL SCORE Thrashers 4 CAPS 2
