So if there’s one thing New Jersey’s deconstruction of Tampa proves, it’s that the Capitals are a lot worse than everyone realized.
Tampa was only able to put together 15 shots. It’s a good thing they had a blue line on their side of the ice — otherwise they wouldn’t have seen one all night.
Anaheim triumphed over the Stars after five overtimes. The Ducks beat the Stars 4-3.
Everyone keeps waiting for the Ducks to run out of steam, but it’s just not happening. The thing about five overtimes is that the winner is basically a fluke. But Dallas still has to feel like crap about it. They played almost two games back-to-back and walk away with a loss.
