Pens Nip Caps 3-1 to Even Series

Posted May 05, 2018

Guentzel was in the penalty box for tripping the Capitals' Lars Eller when Washington tied it. T.J. Oshie's one-timer from the slot sailed over Murray's glove for a power-play goal at 12:55 of the second period.

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.

A pair of teams from the Metro Division will square off this evening as the Pittsburgh Penguins rumble with the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.in game five of their best-of-seven series.

As they move forward, they're heard identifying a camera, spotting a rifle, and saying they're going to check under the bed. The footage does not show what the first officer through the door saw because he did not activate his body camera.

Mike Sullivan knows his team is "wired" for offense, as tends to happen when you have Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and - increasingly - Jake Guentzel on your roster. It gives me a little more confidence, and I'm glad.

This is the second time in the series Wilson made a borderline hit.

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. Oshie lead the way with eight.

"When I stayed on the ice, I thought it was no goal", Malkin said after the game. Alex Ovechkin did not take a shot on goal and Devante Smith-Pelly struggled in Wilson's place.

The Capitals come into this game ranked 4th in scoring during the postseason at 3.50 gpg, while also ranking 6th in shots taken (33.2 spg) and 2nd in power play conversions, converting on 31.6% of their chances. That was the Penguins' 24th and final shot. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier in 1988 are the last two players to reach 20 points in 10 or fewer postseason games. A diving Malkin stabbed at the puck as it sat on the goal line while Holtby attempted to use his blocker as a last line of defence. The Penguins and Capitals were tied at 1-1 with 2:29 remaining in the frame. Just as in Game 2, there was a review to see whether the puck had indeed crossed the goal line, and this time the goal counted for the Penguins. "I was trying to make a smart play by taking away [Dumoulin's] stick, and it ended up being a dumb play by clipping his skate there".

"I get the physical game". But the ruling on the ice of "no goal" was upheld during a video review. "I think right from the drop of the puck we played a full 60 minutes". According to the Department of Player Safety, reverse angles of the hit showed Aston-Reese's head snapped back in a manner consistent with other hits where the head was the main point of contact, and that his injuries would indicate that the head was the main point of contact as well. But we're looking at the next game.
