Pens-Caps: A familiar adversary in an exciting series

After seeing his shot cross the line behind Murray, Connolly skated behind the net with his stick raised to salute the crowd before leading the fly-by glove-taps with his teammates on the bench, the second time this postseason he's gotten into celly mode. Maybe it was in. The Washington Capitals have allowed three or less goals in each of their last six games.

The Washington Capitals tied their Stanley Cup playoffs series against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a 4-1 win in Game 2.

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. "We earned our breaks", Connolly said. "I end up getting kind of taken out as well", said Wilson, who said he hoped Dumoulin wasn't hurt badly on the play.

According to multiple reports, Capitals forward Tom Wilson will not face a disciplinary hearing for a Game 2 hit on the Penguins' Brian Dumoulin and will thus avoid any suspension. Guentzel meanwhile leads the Penguins with 17 playoff points. Losing twice on home ice to Columbus is one thing. The Capitals also were the beneficiary of a questionable video review in the third period when the National Hockey League ruled there were no definitive replays showing the puck crossed the goal line on what would have been Pittsburgh's second goal. There were the ill-advised tripping and slashing minors taken by center Evgeny Kuznetsov, both of which were salvaged by a shorthanded Washington unit that has now snuffed 22 straight opposing power plays. "I don't think we played our best game". "I think we deserved them". As has been said no less than a thousand times heading into this post-season series between the two teams, Pittsburgh has a ideal record across the three meetings between the Crosby-led Penguins and Ovechkin-led Capitals in the playoffs. During the regular season, he accounted for 42 goals and 56 assists in 78 games played.

Steelers select WR, QB, OT in rounds 2-3 of draft
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is 36 years old and he is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Pittsburgh selected former Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington with the 60th overall pick in the second round.

"It was limited time, so it's hard to evaluate whether or not we were able to have success, with or without him", Sullivan said.

Not only has Pittsburgh started slow, starting goaltender Matt Murray has looked unsettled early in the first two games. He made 18 of his 28 saves in the first period and had to in order to keep Washington from turning this into a blowout.

"I was pretty disappointed", Murray said. When something like that happens and you can't do it, you just want to see the rule be upheld.

No penalty was called on the play and the Penguins have yet to announce Dumoulin's status for Game 3 on Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Dumoulin said that he felt considerably better when he woke up Monday than he did the previous evening.

Dumoulin appeared to be injured when Alex Ovechkin and Wilson sandwiched him on this play.

No real tangible update was given on Dumoulin's status after the game and Mike Sullivan brushed off questions from reporters wanting to get his opinion on the matter.
