Islanders can’t finish chances in opening loss to Capitals

Carolina Hurricanes left wing Brock McGinn (23) celebrates his game winning goal during the Carolina Hurricanes defeat of the the Washington Capitals 4-3 in the 2nd overtime of game 7 of the the Stanley Cup eastern division quarter finals at 3 games each in Washington, DC on April 24, 2019.

The Washington Capitals have gotten off to an unbelievable start this season, and I once again think they have a shot at winning another Stanley Cup.

The Washington Capitals received goals from both T.J. Oshie and Jakub Vrana while Nicklas Backstrom recorded his 1st assist of the season.

The only goal allowed by Samsonov, a 22-year-old Russian who was Washington's first-round pick in the 2015 National Hockey League draft, was a fluke.

They were frustrated after going 0-for-6 on the power play and coughing up a two-goal lead to a division foe in their home opener. "I thought their penalty kill worked extremely hard and were able to come out with more puck battles than we were".

Washington came close to an overtime victor late on its man-advantage when a pass deflected off defender Joel Edmundson's left skate and hit the left post. As Backstrom defended the cross-ice pass, Gardiner rifled a shot that found its way between Holtby and the left post. Ilya Samsonov had a big game in the crease for the Capitals as he recorded 25 saves which puts his save percentage at.962.

Slavin evened the game just over seven minutes later, as the Hurricanes converted on a 4-on-2 break. "It wasn't pretty, but at the end of the night, we got the two points, and that's what we wanted to do".

The Capitals will also be without Evgeny Kuznetsov, who is serving a three-game suspension for "inappropriate conduct". In August, the IIHF announced the 27-year-old Russian was suspended four years from worldwide competition after violating the world anti-doping code with a positive test for cocaine.

James Reimer stopped 33 shots in his first career start for the Hurricanes. The Capitals averaged 3.3 goals and 5.8 assists per game last season. The Capitals will look to avenge their early exit in the 2018-2019 playoffs to the Carolina Hurricanes, and I think they will play well in front of their home crowd.
