Wow, what a goal by Scott Gomez.
The Alaskan forward streaked through a Capital or two going through the neutral zone, then the Montreal Canadiens made a great tic-tac-toe passing play to set up Gomez for the goal. The Capitals were mesmerized by the outstanding puck movement as Gomez slipped past Mike Green for a tap-in.
I’m in the “Mike Green gets too much flak” camp but that was definitely a brain fart by the prolific scoring defenseman.
The Capitals are about to go on the powerplay, so this could just be a blip on the radar. Still, you can understand why Capitals fans might be getting a little nervous. It’s been a very interesting contest so far.
