Nothing makes sense. The Caps owned this game, but 40-year-old Penguin Matt Cullen scored first, shorthanded.
The Caps kept on keeping on and were immediately rewarded. Matt Niskanen got his first goal of the postseason to tie the game up.

Who knows what even happened here with Matt Cullen and Kevin Shattenkirk, but the Penguins got yet another breakaway goal.
A lesser team would’ve been discouraged. The Caps were unfazed. The power play resumed. Alex Ovechkin and Nick Backstrom were scrapping in the corner. They win the board battle and send the puck to the weak side where Niskanen is waiting.
It’s a one-timer. MAF didn’t stand a chance.
