'Confident' Capitals appear poised to finish off comeback vs. Penguins

'Confident' Capitals appear poised to finish off comeback vs. Penguins

Pittsburgh's offense is a quick strike, counteroffensive team that likes turning mistakes into odd man rushes and their speed makes those counters lethal.

The Penguins couldn't seem to move the puck out of their zone, and the rare times they escaped their zone, they had trouble entering Washington's zone.

Just about everyone has had to wait for the test results to come back from the medical lab. That's when those possession stats really start to matter.

The ratings likely won't be quite as high there thanks to the game being on NBCSN rather than NBC (to say nothing of no Derby lead-in), but that should still draw well, especially in comparison to numerous other second-round matchups. But consider the intricacies of this series, the factors that set up Game 7.

Crosby has a history of concussions and missed the first six games this season. Im sure that you could poll 100 people, and 99 of them would say theyd rather play at home. Since then, it has been all Washington, perhaps not entirely unexpected given that the Capitals rolled to the Presidents' Trophy during the season. The goals they scored were good goals. Game 7 will take place back in Washington on Wednesday night. Washington needs to go into Game 7 with the mentality that matching minors are as risky as giving up a power play and avoid it at all costs. The two exchanged hat tricks in Game 2 and Washington did something very un-Capital-like by winning an elimination game on the road to force a Game 7.

Pittsburgh were on the verge of eliminating their bitter rivals for a third time since 2009, including Nick Bonino's game-six crusher a year ago, but will have to wait two more days to try again.

Leaked Labour manifesto includes Gibraltar pledge
Many in the party fear voters are about to comprehensively debunk that thesis. The official manifesto is due to be launched next week.

- Alex Ovechkin's Game 7 numbers - three goals and three assists in nine games - don't match his career point-per-game averages, but he's in fairly elite company anyway. Similarly, Kuznetsov has tallied two goals and three assists in three wins this series and only two goals in three losses. The Washington Capitals have allowed three or less goals in seven of their last eight games. The problem wasn't that Holtby was playing poorly, but he wasn't stealing any games for the Caps either.

In this case, the players and teams have to be saved from themselves. That was definitely the case in Game 5.

The shot disparity between the two teams has been a topic of conversation throughout.

Hours away from Pittsburgh and Washington colliding in the seventh and deciding game of their second-round National Hockey League playoff series, people are still talking about the health of Sidney Crosby. The answer is poor shot selection. "Get to their zone a little bit more often". One of the major factors in Washington's turnaround to this point has been better shot selection. A surging Capitals team hitting its stride vs. a Penguins team looking to dig deep for one more win and see what happens from there. With all the pressure now the Penguins, the Caps are well-positioned to do it. That is a clear indication of better shot selection from Washington.

SUCCESS IN SMASHVILLE: A 3-1 victory in Game 6 Sunday over the St. Louis Blues put the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference final for the first time in their 18-year franchise history. Yeo said. "You don't have your Colorados and Detroits anymore with the physical play".

This is the fourth time the two teams will meet in a winner-take-all game. He just asked one of the greatest goal-scorers in National Hockey League history to play on a third line with Washington's season on the verge of being extinguished because it could balance out the Capitals' scoring attack. They need to stay loose, stay aggressive and not play tentatively.
