Caps fall to Canadiens, 3-2, despite furious finish

November 21, 2009|By Sports Digest

Travis Moen and Tomas Plekanec scored in a three-minute span early in the second period, Michael Cammalleri added a goal in the third and the visiting Montreal Canadiens withstood a comeback to beat the Washington Capitals, 3-2. Brendan Morrison scored with 2:32 remaining to pull Washington within a goal. Then Maxim Lapierre was whistled for hooking with 1:52 to play, giving the Capitals a power play through the end of regulation. Washington pulled its goalie with a minute to play, a Canadiens player lost his stick and the Capitals held siege in the offensive zone. But the closest they got to tying the game came when Mike Green's drive hit the right post with less than 25 seconds left.
