Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals Matchup Preview 4/29/18

XD-3913 SN_NHL Playoffs

The Caps-Penguins series resumes with Game 3 Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

"As for players, obviously it's big throughout games just because momentum changes so, so quickly and it's important that everyone understands that the next shift is the biggest", Chiasson said. The Capitals are 16-12 when the team serves fewer penalty minutes than the opposition and 30-19 in games where they're in the box for less than 10 minutes. He was originally drafted in the first round, 16th overall of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals.

All-time, the battles between the two teams lean decidedly in Pittsburgh's favor.

The Jazz tied for second in the National Basketball Association in the regular season by allowing just 99.8 points, but failed to stop Harden in any of their meetings.

The Eastern Conference series is tied 1-1 heading into Game 3 after Pittsburgh's triumph Sunday at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. Washington lost Game 1 of the series 3-2 on Thursday on home ice.

The total has gone over in seven of Washington's past nine games. Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 80.3 percent of their opponents power plays.

Washington again got the strong start it wanted; the team has scored first in all but one of its eight playoff games.

Connolly's goal gave the Capitals a 3-0 lead. Some will undoubtedly suggest that Ovechkin's numbers are boosted by his presence on the power play, but that's not quite the case.

Malkin had three goals and two assists in five first-round games.

If you're to make the case about the offensive contributions, it's worth considering what the rest of team has done around their respective superstar captains, as well.

Holtby will draw the start against Pittsburgh on Sunday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Game 3, therefore, will serve as a chance for Pittsburgh to reclaim its lead in the series.

The Washington Capitals haven't caught many breaks against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs the last two year, but they caught a break in game two, while the Pens appeared to have scored a goal, but the review said it was not conclusive enough to say for sure it was a goal.

"[Wilson] still plays a real hard game", teammate Matt Niskanen said.

Back-to-back defending champion Pittsburgh roared back from a two-goal, third-period deficit to beat the Washington Capitals, while the Winnipeg Jets chased Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne in a convincing 4-1 victory in Game 1. He was not given a penalty for the hit during the game.

And true as it is that there's more to the game than pure offense, the underlying numbers don't really suggest Ovechkin has been overshadowed by Crosby. A recipe that needs to not continue if the Penguins want to be successful in advancing past this series. Coach Mike Sullivan confirmed about two hours before puck drop that Malkin was out for the third consecutive game.
