Never a boring moment between the Capitals & Penguins

This has been a tough series to get a handle on and I think the Capitals have to bounce back on home ice.

While the Lightning's win on home ice in Game 2 was expected, they were dominant on the road in their 4-1 win in Game 3.

After receiving the two suspensions last fall, Wilson met with the head of the NHL's Department of Player Safety, George Parros, for a better understanding of how he can maintain his physical style of play within the rules.

The hit yielded a suspension from the league for three games, meaning Wilson won't be eligible to play in the series unless it goes to a seventh game. Oshie lead the way with eight.

But the series figures to go seven games. He was forced to sit out two pre-season games following a late hit on St. Louis Blues rookie Robert Thomas and was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for boarding Blues forward Sammy Blais shortly after his return. It was his team-leading ninth goal of the postseason, and he added his 10th later.

Scoring three goals including an empty-netter, the Pittsburgh Penguins put in an all-around solid effort to secure a win over rival Washington Capitals. It's a play where if we want to be successful, we need to fight through that and make up for it with good things. Some angles of the play suggested that Tom was aiming for Zach's shoulders.

"I think we cut down their odd-man rushes there last game, and that's going to be a big key in this series", Pittsburgh's Patric Hornqvist told the Post Gazette.

Mike Sullivan knows his team is "wired" for offense, as tends to happen when you have Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and - increasingly - Jake Guentzel on your roster.

Thursday's Game 4 of the Caps' second-round series with the Penguins marks the first game of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs in which Washington did not own a lead at any point. The Capitals are 16-12 when they serve fewer penalty minutes than their opponent and 30-19 in games where they serve fewer than 10 total penalty minutes.

T.J. Oshie scored the lone goal for the Capitals while goaltender Braden Holtby made 21 saves.

Schultz is quietly becoming an all-around defenseman who can run a power play. A number of players have scored by using their sticks to bat the puck out of midair and into the net.

"I shot us in the foot there with that penalty", Oshie said. The hit occurred in Game 3 of the team's second-round playoff series on Tuesday. "So I've got to be a little smarter than that". The Capitals, rather than panicking, calmly got a much-needed goal from Chandler Stephenson.

"Every time you make a body check, you're making a split-second decision", Tom said in September 2017, following his suspension over the hit on Robert Thomas, per NBC Sports. "You just keep playing the game really hard and keep believing".

The crowd's excitement rose and fell with each replay, but certain angles that we don't have on TV definitively showed that the puck was over the red line for a good goal.

"Sometimes we get accused of splitting hairs, but that's exactly what they have to do", Bettman said. We think we can do it. That's the player that he is for us.
