NHL Predictions: Can the Capitals upset the Penguins in Game 6? 5/8/17

"I felt good", Crosby said.

If that happens again and Pittsburgh has a lead in the third period, Sullivan won't make the same mistake twice. The first from T.J. Oshie in the first period to give the Caps a 1-0 lead.

Trotz pulled Holtby for the third period of Game 2 seven nights earlier after he allowed three second-period goals that the coach called "preventable". Three goals in five minutes and the Capitals had turned the tables on the Penguins, snatching back Game 5 after it appeared set to slip through their fingers. How can they take the series back to Washington for Game 7?

"After second: "No panic, nobody talk a lot because everybody concentrate and that's what we need", Ovechkin said".

But no matter how this campaign ends, with Washington down three games to two going into Monday's Game 6 in Pittsburgh, Kuznetsov's play is assurance that the future of the franchise is still brimming with bird-flapping celebrations. In fact, it hasn't even really been all that close.

Washington kept its season alive on Saturday when it picked up a 4-2 win at home to force Game 6.

A few minutes into the third period, the players made their home rink very, very loud. He finished with just one shot on goal and two attempts. "Through out the series I think we've been shooting too much, and I think we were patient that way". Ian Cole and Justin Schultz, who have been two of the Penguins' top defensemen as of late, each ended as -2 on the night. His struggles last season in the postseason, when he scored just one goal in 12 games, led to a summer of soul-searching and struggle. "Just being a little bit better in the offensive zone". Justin Schultz, leader among defensemen in time on the powerplay at 2:17, did not register a shot. Pittsburgh is far too unsafe with the man advantage to give them any opportunities on it. Holtby getting hot is the last thing the Penguins, who have been for the most part out-possessed and out-played this series, want. The Capitals have been given a money line of -105 to win tonight. "That's why we practice all summer, that's why we play 82 games for those moments".

When it comes down to it, I think the Penguins just have to play better defensively. Through the first 10 games of the playoffs, the team has gotten a few players back to injury (Chris Kunitz and Carl Hagelin). they haven't suffered any games missed to injury - aside of course from Game 4 where Sidney Crosby and Conor Sheary missed that game with concussions, with both returning for Game 5.

This is the fourth time the two teams will meet in a winner-take-all.

The Capitals held off the Penguins last night and at least temporarily spared themselves the humiliation of yet another second round exit at the hands of the Penguins.

Mark Stone, Mike Hoffman and Tom Pyatt also scored and Craig Anderson stopped 29 shots to help Ottawa get its fifth overtime win of the postseason, including a double-overtime victory here against the Rangers in Game 2. The Kuznetsov he saw that night was exactly the player he envisioned when grabbing him with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2010 draft and then later successfully getting him to play in the National Hockey League after five seasons in the KHL. Saturday was the first time in the series Fleury posted a sub-.900 SP, though, and while it would seem foolish to suggest one game means the Capitals have suddenly figured out how to beat this seemingly new-look playoff Fleury, blasting four pucks past the netminder is a positive sign for Washington.
