Capitals' Wilson avoids discipline for hit on Dumoulin

Capitals' Wilson avoids discipline for hit on Dumoulin

Now it's time for class to begin to will out. If Pittsburgh shows any of the signs of sloppiness or unpreparedness as they did during the regular season, they are going to get burned.

The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Tuesday in game three of the NHL Eastern Conference Second Round Playoffs at the PPG Paints Arena.

The Washington Capitals haven't caught many breaks against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs the last two year, but they caught a break in game two, while the Pens appeared to have scored a goal, but the review said it was not conclusive enough to say for sure it was a goal. Pittsburgh may not have won game-two even if that goal was allowed, but they still feel robbed and I feel that will have them fully motivated to take down the caps in this one.

On the other hand, the Penguins have had a deficit from the start. Let's take a look at three takeaways from Sunday's Game 2.

Part of the problem for the Penguins is a lack of scoring depth.

"I thought it would be clear one way or the other", said Holtby, who finished with 32 saves, "but I was told it was a pretty unusual play". Filip Forsberg also had three primary assists for the first time in the postseason in his career.

Dumoulin never returned to the game. "We'll see what happens and we'll keep moving forward here". "That's what we're trying to find, a little more balance". That's the next step for us.

Gidley said the FBI background investigation into Jackson "was clean and there are no issues in the background check whatsoever". Shulkin complained that he was sacked , in part, for resisting that push. "And they didn't do a good job and now we're doing it".

"Marchand came in with a little bit of a different role, more of antagonistic role, and has developed into one of the top-five players in the game", Jones said. Nicklas Backstrom scored the empty-net goal, while Kris Letang scored the only goal for the Penguins. In Game 2, there were 10 penalties called, with each team getting three power-play opportunities.

Murray really didn't have a chance on the first goal in Game 2, though, just 1:26 in, after Evgeny Kuznetsov came down hard on Patric Hornqvist's stick, and the puck landed on the worst possible stick, at least from his standpoint. That is an average of 1.875 points per game.

The series shifts to Winnipeg, and the fans in Manitoba should be just as loud and supportive as the Predators' fans were in Nashville. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan says road teams tend to simplify their approach while playing in a hostile environment, which can help. They carried a 4-3 lead into the late stages of the third period, but Mark Scheifele scored the tying goal for the Jets with Hellebuyck pulled for an extra skater at the 18:55 mark.

"I don't know if I have answer for you that makes sense", Sullivan said Monday. "I think we deserved them". "Whatever they decided, we were fine with".

One of the primary reasons the Penguins are two-time defending Stanley Cup champions has been their ability to get the best of the Capitals. The return home should help the Pens in Game 3, and if Malkin returns to the lineup they should become a much more risky scoring team. The Washington Capitals defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-1. The third game of the series will be played Tuesday night. You can't get sucked into stuff like that because, at the end of the day, that's kind of what they want.
