11:26 pm
contributing. >> you know, it actually kind of happened the same way as my first goal last weekend. a nice pass by lars. i was just trying to get it off quick. it found its way through. >> so this game required a shootout. in the fifth round red wings captain henrik zetterberg slips it past braden holtby. advantage detroit. so the caps need to answer, and they send it to their captain alex ovechkin. his shot denied. caps managed to pick up a point, though. they fall 3-2 in the shootout. how about some college lacrosse? johns hopkins taking on loyola in overtime. check out blue jays midfielder joel tinney who pulls off the hidden ball trick for the game winner. check it out. he's still got it. three loyola defenders fall for the okey-doke. hopkins wins it 14-13. so it's hockey day in america tomorrow. caps at rangers at 12:30. that's the game you can see on nbc. 23rd-ranked maryland ay
