Rowney's Penguins downed in game two in Washington

XD-3913 SN_NHL Playoffs

Kris Letang scored Pittsburgh's only goal on a floater from the point in the second period. As such, the league's situation room ruled in favor of a no-goal and the Capitals went on to emerge victorious.

The Penguins were furious, saying they did their own homework. But the Blue Jackets ordered the play reviewed and it was determined Connolly went offside just before the scoring play developed and his goal was nullified. "But you can clearly see that if the puck is on its edge, behind the post, it's not possible for it to touch the line". In those victories, they allowed only one goal, so that will be the key in this series.

Holtby wasn't sure if it was a goal.

Twenty shots to start the game and two goals over the all-too-familiar Achilles heel of Murray and no defensive awareness in the neutral zone to account for the Capitals speed.

"We're just going to play the game", coach Mike Sullivan said.

Only the biggest of optimists could have imagined Brian Dumoulin taking part in the Penguins' practice on Monday at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex less than 24 hours after being knocked silly by Tom Wilson's shoulder. Dumoulin stopped his progress to brace for the hit from Ovechkin.

Craig Smith and Fiala skated up on a 2-on-1, and Jets defenseman Byflugien failed to block Smith's cross-ice pass to Fiala who beat goalie Connor Hellebuyck with a backhander.

Penguins center Evgeni Malkin practiced Saturday and is on the verge of returning to the lineup after missing the past two games with an apparent leg injury.

Following a regular season where they converted 23.5 percent of all power-play chances (the seventh-best), the Capitals have been able to score on 32.1 percent of their postseason power plays. I'm at no point trying to target the head at all.

Gary Cahill fires Chelsea FC warning at Tottenham Hotspur
Cahill, who succeeded John Terry as club captain, has endured a troubled season. I repeat, it is very important for us to try and do our best until the end.

"I don't think anybody really knew", Washington forward Brett Connolly said.

Hopefully the blow to the head is not as serious as it looks. He stops and turns and I'm kind of right there as [Ovechkin is] coming in pretty aggressively. "He would get the job done when he needed to and I would watch those little things and do them right".

"It's a bit of an unfortunate play that he got hurt", he said. We'll see what happens, and we'll keep moving forward here.

Sullivan opted not to comment on the hit in his news conference.

"Obviously, Murray was great [Sunday], same as Holts", Ovechkin says. "So I was disappointed".

It is, and you have to figure the Capitals will continue hammering pucks to the glove side as this tied-up series shifts to Pittsburgh for Game 3 on Tuesday night, given their recent success there. The Pens have lost their last two at home in the postseason, so they have to be careful in this one or the Caps will steal back their home-ice advantage. It is what it is.

"[Wilson] still plays a real hard game", teammate Matt Niskanen said. We can't control that.

"We just have to be smart", Oleksiak said.
