The Washington Capitals did not have a single power play in Game 1 despite launching 72 shots attempts at even-strength.
Guentzel added an empty-net goal to seal it for the Penguins, his playoff-best seventh. This is perhaps this group's last best chance to win the Stanley Cup, after winning the Presidents' Trophy for the second straight season, before dealing with expiring contracts and salary-cap issues in the offseason, and now it is in serious jeopardy against their bitter rivals.
If I had to choose one player for my personal player of the game, it would have to be Jake Guentzel.
Cullen said he could sense Crosby was primed for a productive game.
Marc-Andre Fleury, Penguins -The Pittsburgh goalie withstood a flurry of shots in the first period and made 34 saves against 36 shots to keep Washington's high-scoring offence at bay.
The Capitals, even though they were the less rested team, outplayed Pittsburgh in Game 1.
That's as big a game as Washington will face as just 18 of the previous 87 teams to lose the first two in a best-of-seven series have come back to win, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. "But I think you have to give credit to our opponents, as well".
"We hadn't played for a little bit, so we really wanted to establish the way we wanted to play and I thought it we did a pretty good job of that", Crosby said. On Saturday night, they abandoned their principles and paid an inevitable price.
"Maybe I'm going to put a checker on their checker because he's supposed to be their checker and he got four goals", Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Sunday on a conference call.
Portland's Nurkic out Game 2, Warriors' Durant questionable
I love the player, and he is capable of carrying this team to a title, but there's not room for him on my DFS roster this evening. Also, in the Game 1 , the Blazers Damian Lillard added 34 points on 12-26 shooting and CJ McCollum had 41 points on 16-28.
"Braden Holtby has got to be way better", Olczyk said. That third goal [in Game 2], that's a big moment. Climbing out of that will be especially challenging with the next two games in Pittsburgh, and what were once strengths for the team - defense and goaltending - now seem to be weaknesses.
Then the quick-strike Penguins were at it again. "They've gone to places in their room where you have to go to win a championship, and we're going to have to go to places we haven't gone before if we're going to beat this team".
But it's just as true, and more substantial on the results sheet, to say that the Pens unwound 82 games of remarkable regular season work by the Caps - that 118-111 point edge in the standings that gained Washington home ice - with one night of clutch work in Verizon Center. Don't think so? Stay with me here, hockey fans.
"We just had to change the mojo", Trotz said in explaining his decision. His goal against average-2.62-ranks 11th. "It's about Game 3, it's about focusing on that first play and moving on from there".
Grubauer allowed two goals on nine shots.
After outshooting the Penguins 35-21 in their Game 1 loss, the Capitals came out firing with 10 of the first 11 shots Saturday.
When the Penguins disposed of the Columbus Blue Jackets in five games in the first round, their coach, Mike Sullivan, spoke of his team's "compete level". That made it 5-2 and provided further evidence that the Capitals can't get any kind of break.
Shattenkirk is an outstanding player, and he has a lengthy track record of success in the National Hockey League to prove it.
Fleury shined in Game 1 with a 33-save performance, and he was well on his way to stealing the Penguins a second game after he stopped all 16 shots he saw in the first period. "We're a coaching staff that tries to respond and react to the challenges in particular games and series".
And on film, none of the experts are projecting these prospects to walk into the NFL and light the league on fire. You can look at that as a gamble, I look at it as buying low. "I'm guessing there's only around seven".

But Thomas quickly erased the Bulls' only lead at 65-63 by scoring 10 in a 12-0 run and assisting Al Horford on the other hoop. We've just got to play for one another and play for the moment at hand, which is the playoffs, and have fun with it.
The entire starting five needs to play better the rest of the way, especially against Washington's starting group. Gordon gave the Rockets their first lead with his three-pointer at the 8:07 mark of the fourth quarter at 96-94.
