Caps – Canadiens Headed to OT

After 60 minutes of intense playoff hockey from Verizon Center, Washington and Montreal are all tied up at at two apiece.

In the first period, with 7:24 to play, Mike Cammalleri put the Canadiens on the board first with a power play goal. But three minutes later the Caps answered with a Joe Corvo score to make the score 1-1.

Two two teams went the rest of the first and all of the second periods without a goal.

However center Nicklas Backstrom wasted no time in the third, scoring a mere 47 seconds into the the period to give the Caps the lead for the first time. Montreal’s Scott Gomez answered with a goal of his own make things even once again with 12:26 to play.

Alex Ovechkin has been a non-factor, not even getting one shot on goal.

That’s where we stand as overtime begins…

UPDATE: A little over 13 minutes into overtime, Montreal’s Tomas Plekanec rifled the puck past Jose Theodore and to send 18,377 fans home in silence and give the Habs a 1-0 series lead. Game 2 is scheduled for Satuday night in D.C.
