Teams that win Game Five to go up 3-2 in a series win that series 79-percent of the time. So, it’s safe to say this was an important one.
TJ Oshie with yet another goal in this series gave the Caps an early lead. Justin Schultz pounced on a loose puck to double the lead and TJ Oshie would grab another to give them three. Florida would respond with three straight in the second to tie it up as the Caps forget how to play hockey.
Carter Verhaeghe yet again. Claude Giroux sealed it.
Panthers beat Capitals 5-3. Panthers now lead series 3-2.

Game Six is back on home ice at Capital One Arena on Friday. Big game to say the least. Win or it’s see ya in September.
