Comparing Games 1 and 2 with 3 and 4

Capitals beat Blue Jackets 3-2 in 2OT, pull to 2-1 in series

He has yet to record a point in two Stanley Cup Playoff games this year.

The Blue Jackets are obviously frustrated that they couldn't get anything on home ice after taking the first two games in Washington, but they vent that frustration on the ice with a bounce back performance in Game 5.

Adding Wennberg back in wouldn't reduce the amount of fatigue, however as obvious as it may sound a worn out top six player is much better than a tired bottom six one.

After losing the first two games in Columbus the Caps have come back to tie up the series at two games apiece. Wilson got it at 6:16 of the first period by ripping a shot past Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky from near the blue line after Washington almost scored moments before. An early roughing call on Washington's Lars Eller yielded nothing, and a slash by Columbus' Thomas Vanek actually led to a shorthanded goal by Calvert 10:08 into the first period.

Saturday afternoon National Hockey League playoff action and a couple of teams from the Metro Division will square off as the Columbus Blue Jackets pay a visit to the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.to rumble with the Washington Capitals in game five of their best-of-seven series.

The Capitals jumped out to a 1-0 lead when right winger Tom Wilson scored on a one-timer with 13:44 remaining in the first period. They have never won the Stanley Cup, and they haven't been past the second round during Ovechkin's tenure. In their last game, they fell by a score of 4-1 and scoring their lone goal was Boone Jenner, which was his 1st of the series and 14th of the year. The teams now head back to Washington. Though it could be argued they have been outplayed to some extent in each game, Thursday was a washout.

The forward will undergo minor surgery and miss the rest of the Blue Jackets series, coach Barry Trotz told reporters Friday. "We looked nervous right on through". It was just a struggle. "It was unexpected. It happened". Four of five games between the teams have gone past regulation making fatigue a factor for Game 6 Monday night in Columbus.

The Blue Jackets have never allowed fewer than three goals in their 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games, and Holtby has allowed two goals or fewer in 41 of 62 playoff games. "I'm telling you, we laid an egg, so I'm not going to break it down for you". "Really, I just don't feel like we've shot enough pucks and made it hard on him".
