We’re going to need a Game Seven on both coasts as the Sharks and Bruins have forced their first round series to the final night.
The Washington Capitals responded to two games of questionable effort in North Carolina with a 6-0 trouncing of the Hurricanes in Game Five. Now, that’s more like it.
The Canes out-shot the Caps 30 to 28.
This hard fought series between the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes is going to need at least six games after the Canes won their second in a row on home ice by a score of 2-1. The Caps are left still looking for answers to a young, tenacious bunch that is giving them fits in all three zones.
The Caps out-shot the Canes 31 to 24.
The Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes were due to do battle once more in Game Four of this Eastern Conference first round playoff matchup. The surging, suffocating Canes blew the Caps out of Raleigh on Monday night and looked to do the same again Thursday night.
Warren Foegele stayed hot and scored again for Carolina only 17 seconds into the first period. Alex Ovechkin tied things before Teuvo Teravainen answered with a backbreaking late second period goal.
The series is now tied at two games apiece as we head back to DC for Game Five.
Hurricanes beat Caps 2-1.
