Game 17: Bruins need extra time again in win over Capitals 3-2, are 8-7-2

Sorry this is so late...

Wow, four in a row! Who would have thought that this Bruins team, a team that always managed to find a way to lose at the beginning of the season, would win 4 in a row. Lets keep the streak going!

In the first period the Bruins got on the board very early. After Thomas saved a Capital's shot, the rebound squirted around a little bit until Savard got control of the puck. He then passed the puck to the side to Glen Murray. Murray then passed it up the middle to a very open P.J. Axelsson. Axelsson then skated across the blue line and passed the puck to Marc Savard. Marc Savard then passed it back to P.J. Axelsson who scored the Bruins first goal. Later in the period, the Capitals scored on a wide open shot that beat Thomas. The first period ended tied 1-1.

Nothing much happened in the second period. In the third period, on the powerplay, Zdeno Chara scored early on a drive that went right past the Capital's goalie, giving the Bruins a 2-1 lead. Later in the period though the Capitals scored on a 5-3 powerplay when Ovechkin sent a hard shot past Thomas. The regular game ended tied 2-2.

In overtime, the Bruins, like the past couple of overtime periods, completely dominated. Halfway through the overtime on the powerplay, Glen Murray won the game when he blocked a Capitals clear attempt, then sent a very smooth wrist shot into the net.

Also I would like to mention that the Bruins at 8-7-2 are not at .500. They are still below 500. 8-7-2 is the same as 8-9. OT losses still count as losses. The Bruins need one more win to get to 500.

Here's to getting to .500 tonight against Florida at the garden. The game is on at 7 tonight, and I know the Bruins are looking for revenge. If you recall game 1, the Panthers spanked the Bruins 8-3.
