Red-hot Guentzel leads Penguins in tying series with Capitals

But during a Penguins' power play late in the second for an Oshie interference, a shot bounced off the inside of the right pipe and Holtby sprawled across the crease.

Continuing with his hot streak, Guentzel scored an empty-netter with under a minute left to seal the game, his 10th goal of the postseason.

During the prolonged and repeated review of what would prove to be the decisive goal in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 3-1 Game 4 win against the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, Malkin didn't watch any of the many replays of his diving effort with 2:26 remaining in the second period.

The game featured a significant uptick in physical play, a byproduct of the pressure and the fallout of the NHL's decision not to discipline Washington's Tom Wilson for his high hit in Game 2 on Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Dumoulin, who went into the league's concussion protocol after Wilson blindsided him while Dumoulin braced for a collision with a charging Ovechkin. "So I've got to be a little smarter than that".

Capitals coach Barry Trotz, who defended Wilson for having made a "hard hockey hit" that was "shoulder to shoulder" after Game 3, said his team is ready to adjust without Wilson in the lineup for Game 4.

Oshie took the blame on himself for taking the penalty that led to Malkin's goal.

"We understood it's a huge game for us", Malkin said.

Devante Smith-Pelly replaced Wilson on the top line with Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, but Pittsburgh kept the clamps on.

Oshie scored Washington's lone goal - a shot from the slot on the power play 12:55 into the second that knotted the score at 1 - and Braden Holtby finished with 21 saves but the Capitals couldn't sneak anything else by Murray, who stopped 20 shots just two days after putting together an admittedly "shaky" performance in Game 3.

Pittsburgh did a better job of puck management than in earlier games.

Subban's power-play tally put Nashville ahead 2-0 with 5:24 left in the second period.

With the win, Pittsburgh evens the series at 2-2 and ensures itself of another home game on Monday in Game 6. On the rebound of a shot that the Penguins' Evgeni Malkin pinged on the inside post, the puck came to a stop just in front of the line.

"We've believed in ourselves all year", Holtby said.

It wasn't initially called a goal, but the officials reviewed it and got the call right. You can stream this big Game 4 live here. "We were a puck away from being in the lead or a puck away from getting it tied up, and I thought we did a lot of good things". The focus is on the next game and any adjustments or any changes we make, we'll react however we need to. "We've just got to play really well".
