On a night when the Penguins needed to come out and control play in the offensive zone, they failed to register a shot in the first half of the period, finished the period with only three shots on net total and of those three, two were pucks launched from the blue line that happened to be on net. If you need even more convincing, here's an important stat: The team that scores first in Game 7 is 124-42 all-time including a 5-0 mark in 2016.
"When teams come at you", says Pens defenseman Ron Hainsey, "you should move the puck by them and create that way, especially when they're over [eager]". Probably not for the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks.
After a year off from the rigors of a decisive Game 7, the Capitals are ready to strap themselves into the one-game, winner-take-all rollercoaster once again.
What: The Washington Capitals plays host to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Given Crosby's long history of concussions, however, it's surprising the National Hockey League doesn't have a provision that takes into account a player's medical background.
"It wasn't like a hard shot, you would think a routine stop, just trickled and found its way", he said.
Portugal Telecom says hit by cyber attack, no impact on services
It said it was postponing all non-urgent work and asked people not to come to the accident and emergency unit. That group has been leaking pieces of more than a gigabyte worth of older NSA software weapons since August.
There were just three players with a positive Corsi differential, according to http://naturalstattrick.com.
The Capitals have three remaining; Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Jay Beagle. In the Caps' three losses, he has only one goal and one assist and was held scoreless in two of those games.
Reminder: the contest takes place on NBCSN at 7:30 p.m. ET.
The taste of the 2009 Game 7 at home against the Penguins is still lingering in the throats of Capitals fans. It's also what makes Crosby among the best of the best in the world at what they do. If anything, after last year's Stanley Cup win, getting this far with so many injured bodies has been a bonus. Now it boils down to one.
The Senators were 2-1-0 against Pittsburgh and 1-2-0 versus Washington during the 2016-17 campaign, which saw them play neither team in the first seven weeks.
"No... No..." Sullivan said, and he did not elaborate. We might look back and suggest that this was, in its own way, a prelude to the Cup. "We've had a calmness since Game 3". Trotz doesnt think itll have anything to do with history. So I don't know if there is anything that we need to say. Another stunning collapse -this one in five games- may have caused total reconstruction of the Capitals organization. I don't really want to do it.
"If they go through the protocol then I usually get notified by our medical staff, that's the process", Sullivan said.
2nd of 4 Confederate monuments removed
Removal of the monuments is being funded by private sources, though city officials have declined to identify them. About fifty police officers encircled the monument and kept watch on the protesters.
When Crosby was asked if he was evaluated following that play, the Penguins' star said, "Yeah, yeah ..." "I think they're the better team right now, so hopefully they play that way". Based on (Monday) night I dont see any reason why they wont..
Game 7 of the Eastern Conference series with the Washington Capitals is Wednesday night.
"I've got to believe that (the momentum from Game 6 is) going to roll over, that they're finally sick and exhausted of hearing that they haven't gone to the third round and will break through", Boudreau said.
Sidney Crosby sitting on the bench following his crash into the boards. If there is so much concern about Crosby and history of concussions, why in the hell is the coaching staff, the Penguins doctors, and the owners of the Penguins letting Crosby get back out there?
Crosby then paused on his hands and knees, drew a deep breath and slowly got back onto his feet before skating toward the action. That sentence may be true of the first four games of the series, but it was not of the last two.
NY lost at home in Game 5 of the East finals against Tampa Bay in 2015, then won Game 6 on the road before losing at home in the deciding game.
