Bruins, Caps shift to DC after splitting OT games
WASHINGTON (AP) -- After splitting a pair of overtime games, the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals are set for Game 3 on Monday night in the nation's capital.
Goals have been at a premium in the first-round series, with the Celtics winning the first game 1-0 in overtime and losing the second 2-1 in double overtime.
Washington's Braden Holtby has been a surprise in net, but the Bruins also are trying to adjust to a team playing a different style. Coach Claude Julien said Washington plays "a patient game" -- a statement no one would have made about Alex Ovechkin and the rest of the Capitals in years past.
Holtby has stopped 72 of 74 shots in his playoff series debut. Coach Dale Hunter surprised no one Sunday when he declared: "Holtsy's our goalie."
