Penguins clobber Capitals to take 2-0 series lead

Parting shot: The Capitals had no power-play opportunities in Game 1.

His goal in Game 6 last season sent the Caps to the offseason early, and on Thursday night, there was Bonino again in front of the net, again celebrating as his third-period goal pushed the Penguins past Washington in a playoff game. "We got to find some goals for him, too".

Pittsburgh went on to win the series opener, 3-2.

Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and an assist for Washington, which has yet to lead in the series.

Crosby's between-the-legs move made Alex Ovechkin, Niskanen and Dmitry Orlov converge on him, leaving Kessel wide open for a snipe from the faceoff circle at 13:04. Grubauer allowed a goal on the second shot he faced, making it 4-1.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Capitals are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -145 to win.

"For Crosby to come out and spark us like that was big, especially when you are playing on the road and starting out the series", Cullen said. The Penguins scored three goals on 14 shots on Holtby, who was pulled in favor of Philipp Grubauer after the second period. "But certainly moving forward, I think we have to do a better job of not relying on it as much as we have to this point".

"We just had to change the mojo".

Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel each had two goals and an assist, but Pittsburgh knew it wouldn't have been in the game if not for Fleury, who finished with 34 saves. Malkin's deflection was initially waved off for goaltender interference, but the Penguins challenged and the call was overturned.

Guentzel, the 22-year-old rookie, leads the National Hockey League with seven goals in these playoffs. And they've shown an ability to do that time and time again.

The Capitals dominated the first period, but couldn't beat Fleury. Bonino outraces Brooks Orpik, staves off his slash and beats Braden Holtby over his right shoulder. Has this stopped us from defeating Columbus in five games in round one? Sullivan didn't have an update on RW Patric Hornqvist, who left the game in the first period after blocking a shot from John Carlson. He went back to the locker room and did not return. Washington was able to spend most of the first period in the offensive zone, drawing two power plays and taking 10 of the first 11 shots on goal.

"Bones is a guy that's a high-stakes player", coach Mike Sullivan said.

The NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals have begun with victories by the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators.

Holtby was also hard on himself after the game. But he has not been as good as usual in these playoffs, compiling a.911 save percentage and 2.62 goals-against average.

On the first goal, Hornqvist's effort in the neutral zone to gain control of a 50-50 puck led to a break up ice that Crosby finished after streaking down the right side and taking Guentzel's ideal cross-ice pass. "We've got to shoot it quicker before they can get in those lanes".

For those keeping score at home, his four points in seven games is more than Corey Perry, Milan Lucic and other players you probably picked in your pool. Game 1 marked the first time they hit the under this season. Washington D Karl Alzner (upper body) missed his fifth consecutive game and is day-to day. The Capitals made one lineup change, inserting RW Paul Carey on the fourth line and scratching RW Brett Connolly. Kunitz appeared in his 107th playoff game, tying Hall of Famer/co-owner Mario Lemieux for fifth on the Penguins' career list. Crosby now has four goals and nine points in six playoff games.
