Capitals replace Holtby in goal for 3rd period of Game 2

With Washington's power play still ongoing after Cullen's goal, the team took advantage of poor penalty-kill coverage by the Penguins, and Alex Ovechkin was able to set up Matt Niskanen for a one-timer all alone in front of Fleury.

With the Pittsburgh Penguins defeating the Washington Capitals 6-2 in Saturday night's game two, there is quite a lot of confidence looming around this team. To attempt their own comeback, the Capitals might turn back to Holtby for Game 3 Monday night in Pittsburgh after backup Philipp Grubauer allowed two goals on the first four shots he faced in relief.

Pageau scored a career-high four goals, including the victor 2:54 into the second overtime to lift the Senators to a 6-5 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday, giving Ottawa a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The NHL's divisional playoff format put the top two teams in the regular season on this crash course to meet in the second round for one of the most anticipated series since, well, last year.

Fleury is sporting an impressive.934 save percentage this postseason, well above his career playoff average of.908.

Wearing a blue baseball hat instead of a hockey mask, sitting on the Washington Capitals bench instead of guarding their net, Vezina Trophy victor Braden Holtby shook his head as his replacement settled into the crease.

Watford 0 Liverpool 1: Can's stunner sees Reds capitalise on rivals' slip-ups
Adam Lallana has returned to the Liverpool squad following injury for their visit to Watford . But the Reds had enought to earn a crucial victory in the race to finish in the top four.

Holtby had surrendered three goals on 14 shots before getting the hook after the second period Saturday. We were very together with what we said. Chicago was poised to win another cup this year, or at least compete with the Penguins or Capitals for it. "I think that would be our biggest mistake is to get frustrated right now", said T.J.

Pageau is now second in playoff goals with five, two behind Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel, who scored twice on Saturday.

In the second period, with the Capitals on the power play, Cullen blocked Kevin Shattenkirk's shot from the point, poked the puck away from Shattenkirk and came in on Holtby ahead of the defense. And they've shown an ability to do that time and time again. "They play hard for one another, and I think that's what makes our team what it is".

For that, we'll just have to be a little patient.

It was Karlsson's first goal and seventh point of the playoffs.

"Braden's our backbone. He has been all year", Trotz said, but he also acknowledged that Holtby "wasn't as sharp as he can be for us".

"Obviously, it's never where you want to be", Holtby said.

While Sidney Crosby is Sidney Crosby, the Penguins need more from center Evgeni Malkin and his line, which was shut out in Game 1. "It's just, I don't know".

NOTES: Grubauer finished with two goals on nine shots as Trotz said it was too early to name a Game 3 starter.

"He's always been up for the task, making those big saves at big moments", veteran winger Chris Kunitz said. "And that's where your goalie needs to come up with a save and I just didn't, so I was frustrated that I didn't do that". "We've got to make sure we establish other aspects of our game more consistently - spending time in the offensive zone, establishing a grind game, forcing teams to have to make plays under pressure with our puck pursuit up the ice". "When we get high-quality opportunities, that's when we believe our quick-strike capability is at its best".
