Fortunate bounce off Wideman gives Caps a 3-2 lead

17:40: Power play score for Thomas Fleischmann — with David Krejci  off for hooking — as he carried the puck in the corner and flipped it toward the front of the net. The biscuit bounced off Dennis Wideman’s left skate and ricocheted right past Tim Thomas .
15:30: Two great saves on a breakaway bid by Eric Fehr, with Thomas closing up the pads on the initial five hole attempt, and then dropping into a butterful fly split to kick away the rebound attempt. I shudder to think what would happen if I attempted a move like that.
12:45: Great shift for the Krejci/Wheeler/Ryder line, which has really bounced back to midseason form. Krejci hit the left post with a shot from all alone in the slot with a wide open net on the first attempt, and then flipped it just over the crossbar on a rebound of a Blake Wheeler  bid just seconds later. The effort did draw a cross-checking penalty from Washington’s Matt Bradley.
10:58: Great individual PK work by Alexander Semin allows him to break in for a one man rush, and induces Dennis Wideman  into a hooking penalty that wipes out Boston’s PP and will put the electric Capitals power play unit back on the ice.
8:58: The Black and Gold did everything but score on their powe play attempt. Chuck Kobasew , Patrice Bergeron , Dennis Wideman among others had great scoring bids, the Theodore and collapsing Caps PK were able to withstand the barrage.
5:08: An interference call on Nicklas Backstrom amidst some heavy Bruins pressure will give the Black and Gold at least one more PP attempt while still down a goal.
4:37: A great shot fake and then dish from Patrice Bergeron at the high point set up a Zdeno Chara  blast from the left faceoff circle that beat Theodore on the short side. A big power play strike for the B’s in the waning moments. The timely goal is the 100th of Big Z’s career.
The Capitals and Bruins are tied at 3-3 with 3:20 left to go in the third period of an excellent playoff-atmosphere style game at the TD Banknorth Garden .
