Con­nolly’s late goal lifts Caps

Miami Herald (Sunday) - - Sports -

Nov. 16. Brett How­den de­flected Neal Pionk’s shot from the right point off his skate to Strome at the right side. Strome then skated around the back of the net and beat Co­p­ley with a wrap­around.

Trail­ing 1-0, the Cap­i­tals came out with in­creased in­ten­sity in the sec­ond pe­riod and scored three goals while out­shoot­ing the Rangers 15-9.

Just 31 sec­onds af­ter Sk­jei dou­bled the Rangers’ lead, Dowd tipped Carl­son’s shot for his sec­ond to pull the Cap­i­tals back within one mid­way through the sec­ond. Vrana then tied it with his sixth as he skated in from the left side, cut in on Ge­orgiev and beat him above the glove with a back­han­der with 3:33 left.
