Penguins vs. Capitals Game 2 Pick

Rita Gibson | 12 May, 2017, 19:46

It was the fifth goal in 43 career playoff games for the 36-year-old Fiddler, who did not play in the Predators' first-round series sweep against the Blackhawks.

Washington's Alex Ovechkin scored his fourth goal of these playoffs to cut the deficit to 2-1 late in the second period.

Does it feel like we've seen this fish before?

Through seven games, the Penguins have allowed 119 more shot attempts (514 against, 395 for) and 49 more shots on goal (265 against, 216 for), yet they've outscored the opposition, 30-17, due in large part to a 13.89 shooting percentage and a 93.58 save percentage. He's never complacent. That's why he has remained the best player in the world, even as the league is flooded with young, star players ready to steal his crown.

Maybe the Penguins should have taken a page out of the Ottawa Senators' book when it comes to making the officials recognize there's too many men on the ice. And we all know how the Caps handle pressure. Because of his stellar play, the game was 0-0 after the first period.

"We've got to find a way to put a whole game together", Crosby said. "He brings his best game when the games are most important, and we've got a lot of guys on our roster that we can say that about". "And I think that's a huge step for us".

"We didn't have the luxury of choosing whether we wanted to play well or not on the road and with that comes some confidence", Yeo said.

After a smattering of boos for the first goal, Verizon Center fell silent.

Yet, at the end of the period, the score was 0-0. Apparently that meant throwing as many players on the ice as possible.

Sure, playing with Sidney Crosby helps a great deal, but Guentzel has shown a finishing ability that few of Crosby's litany of wingers has had. In the game's waning seconds, Guentzel's empty netter was the game's final goal. Not only was he relieved of his duties in Game 2, but he had allowed 14 goals through the first four games of the first-round series against Toronto. Their story to be continued... But Cullen, who had four goals and six points in Pittsburgh's Stanley Cup run past year, is once again playing an essential part to the Penguins' success. He also had six hits in the game.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi condoled his death and termed it as a big loss for the government and people of the state. Officiating chief secretary Tarun Shridhar said the government is arranging for his funeral at Kullu with full state honours.

But the obvious note from the Senators' first matchup with the Rangers is that this series could very well be the second round's top goalie duel. Marc-Andre Fleury was outstanding in goal, carrying them to a win they might not have deserved. Usually, a seven-game head-to-head match is a process of one team imposing its style and will on the other.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have weathered storm after storm. Because the Pens, as they'll tell you, are clutch.

Nick Bonino is a Capitals killer.

Holtby won the Vezina as the NHL's top goaltender past year and is one of three finalists this season. Cullen blocked Kevin Shattenkirk's shot from the point, blew around Washington's big trade-deadline acquisition and slid the puck between Holtby's legs for the short-handed goal 1:15 into the second even as T.J. Oshie hooked him from behind. Overall, he doesn't look like the Holtby we've come to know through the playoffs.

As for Kessel, if he has a reputation these days, it's as a big-game player.

"Those are always nice to get", Karlsson said.

I mean, without tradition our lives would be as shaky as the fiddler on the roof.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Capitals are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -145 to win.

Ottawa finally broke through with another power play - on the second of two minor penalties for rookie Brady Skjei.
