Here's your updated National Hockey League playoffs bracket.
It would be an easy statement to say that both Holtby and Bobrovsky were their teams best performers throughout the six games of this series. The Capitals lacked a serious threat outside of their top four forwards this season. There are a few points of emphasis to look at to see why the Capitals bested the Blue Jackets.
And I have a feeling it's the series Ovechkin wants more than any other.
Panarin was a dynamo in the first two games of the series, and he was looking like the player on which the series was going to pivot. Obviously, watching the Blue Jackets lose four straight games and the series hurt fans, but one fan verbalized his frustrations in NSFW comments that were picked up by CNBC mics.
Tickets for the first two Round 2 home games went on sale Monday morning, although the dates for those two games are not known at this time. They went 0-for-16 to close out the series. These numbers are then averaged to come up with a power number to measure a team's all-around play.
Success in the playoffs is dependent on when you score goals as much it is on how many you score. But it didn't matter because the Blue Jackets lost to the Capitals anyway. Grubauer was rattled in the opener and couldn't find his game by the second contest of the series, posting an ugly.837 save percentage -.109 worse than his expected SP, per Corsica. After falling behind 1-0 early in Game 5 on a shorthanded goal, Washington responded quickly with a Backstrom goal. He centered the top line next to Panarin, and Tortorella said the playoffs contributed to his growth. The Caps also knew that GM Brian MacLellan would drastically shake up the roster if they fell to the Penguins yet again. "To be honest, we probably had a week there where we were a little rattled as a group, just trying to get the group past that and establishing a belief in our game with the group that we had in there without him".
The exciting third period is where Washington secured their win. "The series is going to play out differently". That's just how fickle the playoffs can be sometimes. That led to the switch in goal for Washington, and Holtby's play changed the complexion of the series.
They will need more from Ovechkin, though. Sometimes it's hard to roll against the hot hand. It was a pretty fun series. Grubauer was shaky in the first couple of games - looking particularly awful in Game 2 - and so the Caps made a change. There was no looking back from there as Holtby helped to right the ship and win the next four games in a row. It could also start Saturday due to a Wizards game on Friday.
Again, the quality of Columbus' chances and special teams unit dipped as the series went on, but Holtby was solid and consistent in net.
