Pittsburgh Penguins Vs. Washington Capitals Game 6

And they don't care.

The Capitals have spent the better part of the season insisting this time, things will be different.

Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby, center, skates during National Hockey League practice, Friday, May 5, 2017, at the team's practice facility in Cranberry, Pa.

Backed up to the precipice against a rival that's tormented them for decades, the Capitals finally punched back.

After Backstrom tied it, Kuznetsov and Ovechkin scored 27 seconds apart to send the Capitals, who trail 3-2, back to Pittsburgh for Game 6 on Monday night. "We've just got to take one game at a time and you have to reset here and, hopefully, we can get some confidence off this win". The Penguins have won each of the previous three.

For that reason, it would be a pretty big surprise not to see Kunitz back on the second line with Malkin and Kessel in Game 6, especially if Pittsburgh takes a lead. "Two, I've never been past the second round". This series means so much to the Caps and they have to play like it does.

Kyle Turris scored 6:28 into overtime to lift the Ottawa Senators to 5-4 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday for a 3-2 series lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series. The Presidents' Trophy winners responded with a three-goal barrage over the final 20 minutes that extended their season. "We're having fun now". His poor puck possession, coupled with a poor Malkin pass and a bad bounce or two, led to the first two Capitals goals of the third period in Game 5. The Capitals did not take a penalty in the final 35 minutes of play, which is not only impressive but also integral to their success. A failed one-timer caused Marc-Andre Fleury to be out of position, and Kuznetsov had an open net from a sharp angle.

Darren Soto glad Puerto Rico will seek Bankruptcy-like measure under PROMESA
Eventually, a bankruptcy judge will decide how much they will lose, which may have a ripple effect in the municipal bond market. The island's population has declined by 350,000 in the past 10 years. "We can not keep stretching this chewing gum further".

With the returns of Sidney Crosby and Conor Sheary who suffered concussions in game three, the Penguins have made a decision to shake things up a little bit.

"If we could find some of that scoring touch we had in the playoffs past year, we'd be happy", said center Nick Bonino, who practiced on a line with Carl Hagelin and Phil Kessel on Monday in Pittsburgh.

His pursuit of physicality generated five hits but also caused him to endanger Crosby twice when converging on the puck near the end boards. The Penguins pushed for five games.

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.

All series the Capitals have been aiming to play better in front of Holtby, who had his best game of the series Saturday in stopping 20 of 22 shots. The goals they scored were good goals. That unit played well together and brought a physicality to the rink that would be useful against teams such as the Capitals and Columbus Blue Jackets. "I thought it was a lot better than throughout the series", goaltender Braden Holtby said. Washington is 3-3 at home this postseason; Pittsburgh is 3-2 on the road. Backstrom flipped a wrist shot by Fleury 16 seconds into the third to make it 3-0 and when John Carlson fired one past Fleury 11:17 into the third, the arena began emptying out. 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.

"I love coaching in these moments, too", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.
