THE CAPTAIN JT WITH YOUR OVERTIME GAME WINNER!
YES! YES! YES!
To be honest this game should never have even gotten to overtime. This game should have been a blowout. The way the Isles dominated play in the first and second period, this game should have been 17-0. Even after the Caps owned the third period, total shots in regulation was still 40-25 in favor of the Islanders. If it wasnt for a Herculean effort from Braden Holtby, it would have never even been this intense.
But thats what playoff hockey is all about: big time goaltending. And Jaro matched Holtby with his play today long enough to let his Captain JT win this game. Credit the 4th Line with dominating this game physically. Capitals bodies were hitting the ice left and right. The crowd was defeaning. Boychuk blanketed Ovechkin all day. Okposo looked his best since his return from his injury. And of course John FUCKING TAVARES puts the Caps away.
Theres a reason we call it Fort Neverlose motherfuckers! Hey Nate…
