Capitals blow lead, win in OT

May 1, 2017 - Crosby suffers a concussion after being cross-checked in the face by Washington defenceman Matt Niskanen in Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinal between the penguins and Capitals.

As for Niskanen, he said the hit wasn't intentional and he would talk to the National Hockey League if he received a call.

"He's very upbeat, he's very positive" Sullivan said. Brought the play over to Nicky and we know he's so dynamic, when he comes in, players give him that time and space.

Crosby has dealt with multiple concussions during his career, including one against Washington in the 2011 Winter Classic that he needed almost two years to fully recover from.

The Penguins lost the Game 3, 3-2 in overtime, but still lead the series 2-1.

"We came here to win two games", Shattenkirk said.

However, the chances of the Penguins winning two more rounds without Crosby, Kris Letang and Matt Murray are not great. If it's a loss for any amount of time, then it's a loss felt not only by the Penguins but also by the National Hockey League and anyone who cares about the game.

Mr Bradley said that, for him, observing the dawn service was a way to remember the wartime sacrifices of his family. It's one of Wagga's biggest events of the year - and a chance to thank those who have protected our country.

"I wasn't even trying to cross check him with a serious amount of force", Niskanen told reporters after the game "A collision was going to happen there in the crease". Potentially losing one of the game's best players is a huge loss for Pittsburgh, but this would not be the first time Pittsburgh has had to deal with Crosby's absence.

At this point, the Washington Capitals could have quit. "You come to the rink, and you're a little more ready to prepare, just that kind of competitive instinct, I guess".

"I don't think it's a very nice hit", Chris Kunitz added. The play was upheld under review, only to be overturned due to goaltender interference following a challenge by Capitals coach Barry Trotz. The Capitals insist they'll be ready.

"We're hopeful that won't be the case", Sullivan said of playing without Crosby. "We will evaluate him from there".

"I feel like David is really built for the type of playoff hockey you have to play to go deep".

Washington took a 2-0 lead early in the third period behind goals by Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetzov, rare moments of flow during a static and occasionally ugly three periods that tried to make up in physicality what it lacked in pace of the frenetic opening two games in Washington. "I look at today as an opportunity to play more of my game, get back to my basics and help this team".

"It's tough. That's our captain, our leader, the best player in the world", Penguins defenseman Justin Schultz said.
