Maine's Dumoulin Injured In Game 2

Tom Wilson reflects on his evolution, Penguin retribution

"We're not going to worry about that", he said. After trailing 2-0 in the series the Caps won four straight to eliminate Columbus in six games.

Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin as well as defenceman Brian Dumoulin all skated with the team on Tuesday and all will be a game-time decision against the Washington Capitals for Game 3. Contorting like a pretzel, Holtby plunged face-first and kicked his leg into the air, smothering the puck and shielding the overhead camera. Washington Capitals' forward Tom Wilson.

There may have been some fear and trepidation on the Washington bench, but this time head coach Barry Trotz's team would hold on to the lead and even added an empty-net goal.

The team you want to win - or the team you are playing for - will determine what you want to see here. "It's behind the post".

He continued, "I think if you watch it at game speed, I don't even alter my movement at all". As a result, they called it "no goal" on the ice.

I don't want to get ahead of myself, but it's just so ideal.

Hockey might be considered a game of inches, but this moment came down to mere millimeters. Perhaps it was instead a miniscule mound of snow onto which the puck was perched, inconclusive evidence as referee Chris Rooney announced to wild applause. The next two games should help determine the rest of the series. The Washington Capitals are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 22.5 percent of their power play opportunities.

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. The Pittsburgh Penguins have allowed four or more goals in four of their eight playoff games. We have to earn it.

"Aaaah, I mean, he's such a good goalie - it's tough", Connolly says.

No doubt that the Capitals received plenty. Eller returned a feed to Vrana, who beat Murray glove side for a second time. Washington wouldn't be squandering a two-goal lead, because the team now was up three. "It felt that contact with the head was unavoidable on the play, and Dumoulin bracing himself for the [Alex] Ovechkin hit materially changed the position of his head prior to Wilson making contact with him". "It's the playoffs", Crosby said later. Most importantly, the Capitals continued to build on their lead rather than cling to it.

Being aggressive is really the only way the Capitals are going to knock off the two-time and defending Stanley Cup champions. "They don't have a clear view of the puck over the line", Crosby said.

Dumoulin said he'll "hopefully" be able to play. He didn't return to the game. The hit occurred 4:26 into the second period. "We know it's going to be a long series".

The Washington Capitals hope to tie up this series and steal back home ice advantage with a victory here.
