I didn’t want to say it out loud, but when David Steckel scores in the playoffs, it’s a sign. Especially against a Pens team that had been taking it to us. Thankfully, Steckel’s goal woke up Verizon Center, and more importantly, the Caps.
And then there was the amazing save. Everyone thought it was in. Crosby had his arms raised in celebration – but no. Varly got just the heel of his stick on it. Not sure how, but he did it. Pretty amazing. Of course, I agree with Boudreau that Varly was due a big save after the softie he let in…
Game 1: Caps 3 Pens 2
Series: Caps 1 Pens 0
A good start.
