of course, they won't have home advantage like they did today. they were really hoping to finish this off and beat the bruin here at home, but, of course, that isn't happening. take another look as some of these fans right now walking outside of the verizon center in this sort of wet soggy cold sunday afternoon out here, but the good thing is the caps will have one more opportunity to put this thing away. of course, that will happen in boston. >> thanks very much. we'll see you in a few minutes. animal control is looking for two dogs in northeast washington that attacked several children and mauled a man. it happened friday night in the 1200 block of queen street northeast. surae chinn reports the man who tried to protect the children is being called a hero. >> reporter: andre hawthorne is recovering from injuries after using his body as a human

as tonight going through tuesday morning. some heavy wet snow is possible, especially in the higher locations and downed trees and power lines, huge concern. currently temperatures upper 40s in downtown, 45 in gaithersburg, 46 in culpeper. the cloud cover really making it difficult for us to heat up at all. our satellite and radar picture showing us here's the big storm heading up toward the north into new york and boston, but we'll still see the rain stick with us through tonight. so it will feel a little like march the next couple days, rainy, windy tonight, mountain snow, not as wet on your monday, but keep your umbrella handy heading out the door, futurecast showing us hour by hour where the rain is going to be. 9:00 still moderate to heavy rainfall especially east of 95, heck clock tonight still rein -- 11:00 tonight still rainy conditions and snowfall in the higher elevations for monday into tuesday. here's a look at your next seven days. lower 50s for monday, still a
chilly windy day. tuesday is a little milder but still windy, in the lower 60s becoming partly sunny and right now we're looking to be dry. wednesday mid-60s, a little milder on thursday and lower 70s, but a chance for some showers and thunderstorms. looks like friday and saturday we will be dry in the mid-60s. so no reports of flooding with the rain because we're so dry the ground, our plants there are just eating up this moisture. i'm glad we finally got some. >> i'll have to check my hearing because i thought you said something about snow. >> isn't that crazy? late april snow. chris is back in a minute with a look at the capitals game and its terrible loss to the bruins. stay with us.
a chance to unseat the defending champs today, playoff series on the line. this is bake and forth game, another nail biter. in the 3rd tied up at 2 holtby can't grab the puck, just laying out there, interference and the bruins up 3-2. later in the 3rd alex ovechkin loves this reaction, a little delayed, but hey, a goal is a goal. tied at three and the game is into o.t. three minutes in off the backstrom turnover tyler seeing win with a goal to give the bruins the 4-3 -- tyler seguin with a goal to give the bruins the 4-3 win. dave owens, what was it like in the locker room at the verizon center? >> reporter: tell you what, every game in this series has been decided by one goal. so no surprise today went down to the wire. i'll tell you, what that locker room i just came from, guys are physically spent looking like you would think they would after two games in two days. take a listen. >> we were ready, you know.
we want to finish it up here at home, but again, you know, they come out pretty hard and we made a mistake and it cost us a game. >> it's the bruins. they're not going to go down easy obviously. we knew it was going to be tough and there are a lot of predictionings at the beginning of boston winning in six or maybe them winning in seven. so we knew it was going to go a long series and it's our turn to win now. >> reporter: it was dramatic and i'll tell you, i'm joined by a man who likes dramatics, sky kerstein, the fan. did this play out the way you thought? >> yeah. they knew the bruins would be a fierce team. they showed us in the 1st period and the caps were big in 2nd and 3, but the bruins in 3rd period had three shots on goal and a wide open tyler seguin break-away to win it.
>> reporter: so many little things mean a lot in the game like this going back to back. take us through some of those that decided this game today. >> caps, 0-4 on the power play. you've got to take advantage if you want a chance in the game. keith aucoin probably missed three or four shots. the caps had 39 shots on goal but only beat thomas three times. defensively the caps only blocked 12 shots. they usually block in the 20s when they have success against the bruins and also defensively the caps just didn't clear the crease very well tonight, a couple rebels put in. a couple deflections i should say were put. in one rebound was put in and at the end a bad turnover led to the tyler seguin goal. >> reporter: how much did fatigue play a factor for both teams today? >> a pretty good factor in the 2nd and 3rd period and in overtime just bad decisions, but you can't use that as an excuse. it's the second game of back to back in the playoffs. everybody has the tame situation. now the caps have to -- same situation. now the caps have to go up to
boston with two days rest and the bruins have the momentum, but the caps are 4-1 in boston this season including regular season. >> reporter: i want your take on alexander ovechkin. he's been kind of quiet and has turned it up. does he have to gift his game up one rung higher? >> you need your stars to get your stars. ovie had one goal and that was great and all, but you need him to be your star if you're going to pull this out in a hostile environment. >> reporter: who has the advantage heeding back to beantown wednesday? >> i -- heading back to beantown wednesday? >> i think it's boston heading home, but the caps are still 4- 1 up in boston. so the caps know how to play on the road up there. >> reporter: nobody does it better, appreciate your time. we'll see you a bit later tonight as well. back to you in the studio. caps lose. game 7 is wednesday night. >> thanks so much. we'll see you and sky later

on the final lap, but he holds on to win his second race of the season. >> that was a tough one today at the verizon center. >> that was tough. >> it just felt like their game. >> it did and they kept coming back. ovie got that nice goal right off face-off, but three minutes into overtime, they couldn't do it, but 4-1 in boston regular season and playoffs. >> let's hope that trend continues. thanks. >> a little more chilly weather ahead. >> yes. rainy tonight, windy and cool tomorrow once again. >> we'll see you back here at 11:00. have a great night. >> your wusa9 iphone weather app driven by toyota, toyota, moving forward.
