Three things stuck out about this game, and they clearly fit into...
Dustin Penner’s Buzzer Beater
Highlight-reel goals are one thing, but nothing brings a crowd to its feet like buzzer beaters, even the unfancy ones.
Dustin Penner, who the Caps acquired on Tuesday from Anaheim for a fourth-round pick, did just that during a playoff game last year when he was with the L.A. Kings against the St. Louis Blues at the end of the second period.
Now, just imaging if this happened at Verizon Center, in the playoffs.
