We're doing something a little different and a little more fun in the Blog Box -- hey, we gotta jazz things up somehow -- with a multi-blogger live blog from the Coliseum.
Check it out and chime in: (Sorry about the window size - we're working on it!)
OK, so Dee ended the live blog (by accident) early just as things got interesting - so it's 4-3 Caps, 6 1/2 minutes left, 4 on 4.
So we'll do it the old-fashioned way.
Park breaks in, tries to deke - nothing. But then Weight gets pulled down and the Isles are on the PP with 4:19 left, trailing by one.
Isles working the zone - PP runs out ... but then STREIT with the wrister from the point and it's a TIE GAME! Streit shoots it between the legs of a defender with Sim in front, and Sim deflects it into the net. Giggedy Giggedy indeed!
Last two minutes ... Nice work by Bergy keeping it in - blast by Guerin stopped by Johnson with 1:01. A frenzy!
Hilbert with a blocked shot and we're going to OVERtime!
BTW, I'm the only blogger in the Box still online. And I'll stay here til the very end, be it sweet or bitter. That's how I roll.
Pretty even so far in the OT but the Isles need to make sure someone is on Ovetchkin like a blazer.
Great shot by Hunter, snared by Johnson with 1:10 left.
OHHHHH - Alex off the POST! Walks in -- WHAT??
And 10.7 seconds left, Isles don't clear - Alex O buries it in the top left corner. Isles LOSE.
Oh, the pain. JUST CLEAR THE PUCK!!!!!!
No more words.
