The series has moved to Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh all tied up 1-1 after Eric Fehr dispatched the Caps in Game Two at Verizon Center. The Caps are going to have to win a game in Pittsburgh, a place where they went 1-1 during the regular season, if they want to see the Eastern Conference Final.
Brooks Orpik has been suspended by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for 3 games after his late hit to the head on Olli Maata in Game Two. This likely means that Dmitry Orlov will return to the defensive corps and that Matt Niskanen, Karl Alzner and John Carlson are probably all never going to leave the ice.
Let’s get a win eh? Also, NEW SHIRTS! Liveblog below.
