Washington Capitals vs. Pittsburgh Penguins - 5/5/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

05 May 2018

Prior to his punishing check on Aston-Reese, Wilson had drawn criticism for hits on Alexander Wennberg of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the opening round and Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Dumoulin in Game 2 of the current series.

The Capitals grabbed brief control of the series amid all of the Wilson-led Game 3 chippiness when Ovechkin baseball-batted home the winning goal with 1:07 to play.

Tom Wilson's three-game suspension has put the Washington Capitals in a hard place against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Washington, looking to avenge second-round losses to Pittsburgh in each of the last two seasons, has won five straight Game 5s when the series is tied.

Crosby put the Penguins back in front with 3:33 left in the second when he took a pretty pass from Guentzel — who occupied three Capitals before sliding the puck to his teammate — and buried it into an open net.

Murray made 18 stops but couldn't get his glove - a problem area all postseason - on Ovechkin's initial shot, allowing the Russian star to have a shot at the rebound.

However, Wilson does not take the ice for any NHL game with intent to injure other players, but he does begin every game with intent to play hockey in the physical manner in which it was meant to be played. It was just the third time in their last 25 games that they have been held to less than two goals.

"I hit the post, and it's a good thing I didn't raise my arms up", Ovechkin said. Wilson was playing a vital role on a line with Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov.

Oshie tied the game on Washington's second power play, one-timing a slick feed from Backstrom.

Wilson was suspended twice in the 2017-18 preseason by the Department of Player Safety: Missing two exhibition games for interference on Robert Thomas of the St. Louis Blues on September 22, and getting four exhibition games for boarding Sammy Blais of the Blues on October 1.

Wilson, 24, had career-highs across the board in his fifth National Hockey League campaign with 14 goals and 35 points in 78 games, while averaging 15:59 of ice-time per game.

Guentzel gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead at 9 minutes, 21 seconds of the second. Review showed the puck had just barely crossed the line giving Pittsburgh the 2-1 lead.

During the play, T.J. Oshie and Kris Letang got into a scrap and both headed off the ice to receive fighting majors.

"And having that behind us now, we know what it's going to take", Hellebuyck said, per Scott Billeck of They've averaged the league's second-most shots on goal (33.9) while the Capitals have attempted just the 31st-most (33.9).
