Hendricks, Laich, Semin and a gritty Caps goal to like in Montreal

There was a lot to like about the Caps second goal in Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Montreal.

First, there was the hard work by Alex Semin, who managed to keep the puck moving along the boards after falling to the ice in the corner. Brooks Laich then followed that up by not wasting time or looking to do anything fancy—he simply took the puck directly to the net. Finally, Matt Hendricks was headed toward the crease and picked up the Laich rebound, hammering it in decisively.

The play was gritty, simple and just what the Caps needed with only a one goal third period lead at the point.
