WASHINGTON - Six years ago this weekend (April 14, 2012), the Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins met in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
It was the Saturday afternoon NBC Game of the Week with a scheduled start time of 3:20 p.m. ET. The author of this post was planning on proposing that evening, figuring the hockey game would finish at a reasonable hour. It didn’t.
I talked to Orlov this morning about what he thought he could've done differently vs. Panarin on the winning goal. He said he tried to get his stick on the puck after Panarin went wide on him, but missed the puck. He said he maybe should have tried to get lower to reach the puck.

#Caps Trotz suggested that Ovechkin can have a bigger impact by using the wheels more in GM2. Trotz often pointed to Ovi's skating during reg-season for his bounce-back campaign: "When he's skating and really moving, then he's always dangerous."
#Caps Trotz agreed with Ovi that 8 has to be better in GM2 vs #CBJ : "I didn't think he had a big impact on [Game 1]. And O is a top player for us, so he has to have impact, and I don't think he had enough impact... He felt that he can impact the game a lot more." twitter.com/bmcnally14/sta…
#ALLCaps Jay Beagle will return to WSH lineup for GM2 vs #CBJ . He’ll skate on trio w Stephenson & Chiasson. Jakub Vrana, who played just 6:58 in GM1, will sit as healthy scratch. Vrana drew penalty & had great primary assist, but also had poor puck management w multiple turnovers
AUDIO: Proposed to the girlfriend six years ago today. A marathon #Caps -#Bruins playoff game put a wrench in those plans. Mercifully, Nicklas Backstrom saved the day... sort of. wtop.com/washington-cap…
