Okay, so, let’s try this again. The Pittsburgh Penguins are still in DC for Game Two against the Washington Capitals. In terms of what the Capitals will need to focus on to win this game? Getting to the finish line. That’s literally it. Holding a lead and closing out the game.
Despite being on the ice for practice in a full contact jersey, Evgeni Malkin will miss Game Two with a lower-body injury.
Though when has winning Game One ever really worked out for the Capitals? Exactly, so let’s keep our heads up, and let’s get this series really going.
Peter will have your recap after he goes to see a certain film. The puck will drop a tad after 3PM and you will need to flip your channels to NBC.
The final regular season stats:
|Shot Attempt %||52.3%||48.3%|
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Stephenson – Backstrom – Oshie
Connolly – Eller – DSP
Vrana – Beagle -Chiasson
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
Okay so this is scary… but I like the look of “10-1”???
Every playoff game is important, obviously. But Game 2 is absolutely critical for the #Caps. Why? In the Crosby/Malkin Era, the #Pens have never lost a series after going up 2-0. They are 10-0 in those situations. #CapsPens

Last night, it was announced that the Buffalo Sabres won the first overall pick in the draft lottery. The other two teams that were in the running for the first pick were the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens. The second pick went to the Canes while Montreal snagged the third spot.
One of my favorite things is “make fun of the Habs” twitter. So, of course when they failed to secure number one and number two, the reactions were impeccable.
Once again, the Habs disappoint after two periods.

Good for Montreal. If there’s any team that deserves a chance at landing a franchise defenseman, it’s the Canadiens.

BREAKING: Bergevin thinks his lottery pick has character issues.

People are saying that Habs fans deserve this draft lottery outcome after such a tough year. But have you ever considered that maybe the Habs and their fans deserve nothing good ever?

Of the three teams remaining in the #NHLDraftLottery, Montreal would definitely be the most fun winner, mostly because they’d spend the first eighteen or so months trying to convert Rasmus Dahlin into a centre

That was quite literally the most exciting moment of the Habs’ season

So now Rasmus Dahlin has to wait to find if he’ll start his career in Buffalo, Carolina, or whichever team offers the Canadiens a terrible trade.
