The Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes were to fight again in the fourth game of the first round of the Eastern Conference in the Eastern Conference playoff round. The heaving, suffocating canes blasted the caps off Raleigh on Monday night and looked the same on Thursday night.
Warren Foegele stayed hot and scored only 17 seconds for Carolina in the opening hour. Alex Ovechkin tied things up before Teuvo Teravainen responded with a late second second-second goal.
The series now draws two games each, while we return to DC for Game Five.
Hurricanes defeated Caps 2-1
- The caps were scored after 1
- I'm still confused why Alex Ovechkin was turned into a villain because he won a fight between them two consenting adults who were fully in the frame of NHL hockey.
- I'm really tired of Warren Foegele scoring every game, mainly because I have to copy his surname from Twitter because that's kind of a spelling mistake.
- I miss Michal Kempny and whatever happened in 2017-18 Evgeny Kuznetsov . Can we put the latter on some milk cartons?

- What In my eyes was a balanced period with a successful capital -Major game that was completely ruined by Carolina and less than 30 seconds before the end was. That simply can not happen and it was the turning point in this game and possibly the series.
- Look at Brooks Orpik for this target. Just watch him. Time for greener pastures.
- Nino Niederreiter is one of the league's most underrated players and fits in perfectly with this Carolina team. Fantastic pickup by Canes General Manager Don Waddell .
- Petr Mrazek has a breakout series. Brick wall.

- Caps were unaware in the third. Their defenders gave the puck more than their own team to the other team.
- That was a five-minute major, and the referees barely had two minutes to spare. Let's hope that TJ is okay, does not look good.
- Valiant strives to tie it together in the end. I suspect
- Yes, I miss DSP.

Back to DC, where a must to be out of the caps is in the game Five. The saying goes that a team in a playoff series is never really in trouble until it has lost at home.
