Capitals expected to deploy same lineup in Game 3 in Pittsburgh

For that, the Capitals can thank a dearth of available camera angles, yes, but also a group-wide resiliency that helped them rebound from a demoralizing Game 1 loss in which they bumbled away a two-goal lead for the third time this postseason.

Wilson struck Dumoulin in the head with his left shoulder 4:36 into the second period of Game 2 Sunday.

Game 3 goes Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. Captain Sidney Crosby was dominant in the first round of the playoffs, a six-game series over the Philadelphia Flyers, scoring an incredible six goals and totaling 15 points. "Our No. 1 focus is to win the hockey game".

Quickly after, it was Guentzel who put one home on a lovely redirection from an innocent Crosby shot from the far side of the boards.

"They're not going to give up and they're not going to give easy play for us".

"We're a better team when Geno's in our lineup", Sullivan said. "Obviously it's an emotional game and a lot of things happen". "He took me under his wing".

Jay Beagle, who missed Game 1 against Columbus due to injury, is valued for his efficiency in the faceoff circle and play on the penalty kill. We have to focus on these two home games we have at hand. "They were all over us". Less than two minutes into the game, Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov and Hornqvist raced for a puck that had slid into Pittsburgh's zone. Dumoulin was on the ice for the morning skate, but was wearing a non-contact jersey.

Dumoulin said he'll "hopefully" be able to play. And finally, Brett Connolly extended the Capitals lead to 3-0 on a partial breakaway, when he fired as hard as he could - again, glove side. If Evgeni Malkin is, in fact, close to returning, the Penguins might just have everything they need to overwhelm their opponent on home ice.

"Just our decisions in general, starting in our own end", he said. Offensively, his game's come a long ways, but his physical play is, he's trying to walk the line of being a real physical player, but play clean, keeping his elbows down, feet on the ice.

"If I'm playing, I'm ready to play", Malkin said. After that, we had a good response. Nicklas Backstrom wrapped up the scoring with his third goal of the playoffs on an empty netter with seven seconds remaining. It just has to be a 60-minute effort. "I've watched it briefly and I don't realize what I can really do any different". Sunday afternoon started much the same way when Alex Ovechkin hammered an unassisted goal and Jakub Vrana snuck a power-play tally past Matt Murray, giving Washington another 2-0 lead entering intermission. "Having said that, I don't think our team looks for any sort of excuses".

The guy who's usually in the middle of it? "We're going to let the league do their job, and we're going to do ours". Murray had time to recover after the contact from Connolly while that contact did not really alter his ability to stop the puck.
