Coming off a devastating triple overtime loss, the Caps have bounced back nicely, and played a solid first period in front of their home crowd. They've out-shot the Rangers, 14-3, have yet to commit a penalty, and lead one-to-nothing on an Alex Ovechkin goal with 12:43 elapsed in the period. Ovechkin's goal was a one-timer off a ricochet, unassisted. Check out the video below:
Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, has done well considering the barrage of shots he faced in the first period. Here's a .gif of one very impressive, possibly lucky, save.
The remainder of the game can be seen on NBC.
