Post-Game Review: Blackhawks @ Washington Capitals

Blackhawks lose to the Washington Capitals 4-3 in overtime.


As a tribute, I will now write this post with as much effort as the Blackhawks showed for large stretches of this game.

Meh. It’s a point. Try again tomorrow.

Captain Force of Nature watch: Scored the goal that sent the game to overtime and assured the Blackhawks a point. Good job, son.

Duncan Keith plus/minus rating watch: Even.

Post-game quotes from @TramyersCSN:

Quenneville: “I find (short-handed goals) really take a lot out of your team.”

Keith on having 4 D-men 4 a time: “That was tough. It wears on you, especially with a team like that with a lot of speed.”

Toews: “It bites pretty hard when you get scored on shorthanded.That definitely didn’t help.”

Quenneville: “I thought we were generous in all the goals we gave them.”

Post-game videos: Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Joel Quenneville

Bonus video: Brent Seabrook got into a fight with Jason Chimera. It wasn’t a very good fight, mind you, but still — me gusta.

WSH Mike Knuble (16) Wrist Shot – Assists: M. Johansson (13) & D. Wideman (28)
