The Washington Capitals let their first power play fizzle in Game Six, but they weren’t gonna let two pass.
Check out this sequence – maybe the best puck movement Hogwarts has seen these many years.

We pick up the story on the power. Sidney Crosby is in the box for hooking Tom Wilson, which is already a delightful turn of events.
Nick Backstrom is in the Nick Backstrom place. He sends the puck – alarmingly fast – to Evgeny Kuznetsov below the goal line. Kuznetsov immediately bump-sets to TJ Oshie, who effing sinks it.
It’s 1-0. TJ Oshie’s 4th of the playoffs and Nick Backstrom’s 6th of the series.
A PP that had a hard time getting into formation all of a sudden looks just as fearsome as ever.
