Penguins' Hagelin a game-time decision for Game 2 vs. Caps

If we know anything at all here, it's that we'd love to see another party on the steps after Game 2 Saturday night. "We've got to make sure we establish other aspects of our game more consistently - spending time in the offensive zone, establishing a grind game, forcing teams to have to make plays under pressure with our puck pursuit up the ice".

Fleury made 34 saves including 16 in the first period as the Penguins beat the Capitals 6-2. Kunitz appeared in his 107th playoff game, tying Hall of Famer/co-owner Mario Lemieux for fifth on the Penguins' career list. The shot pinged off Rangers center Derek Stepan before going into the net. Washington on only five per cent of theirs.

While everything is butterflies and rainbows in the Penguins net, the Capitals may have a goalie controversy in theirs. Things did not get much better with Grubauer back there: He allowed a goal on the second shot he faced, and another on the fourth, making Pittsburgh's advantage 5-2.

Last we saw these two together, they were chumming it up at the NHL All-Star game, but we should have known whatever weird friendship that was formed that weekend wouldn't last long. First, to take back home ice, which they've done.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Erik Karlsson scored on a bad-angle shot with 4:11 left in the third period, sending the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers in the opener of their second-round playoff series on Thursday night.

The pesky Tampa Bay Lightning, lifted by outstanding play from its backup goalie at one end of the ice, used a counterattacking strategy to nearly clinically exploit and capitalize on the Penguins' up-tempo, puck-pressuring style. Then he showed toughness normally attributed to Ovechkin by blocking Justin Williams' shot and passing ahead to Jake Guentzel, who beat Braden Holtby for a 3-1 lead.

After a smattering of boos for the first goal, Verizon Center fell silent. But when Washington went to first intermission with the game tied at 0-0, frustration allowed them to unravel over the next 40 minutes.

Those who do could lose their tax-exempt status. "That's illegal now for them, as a condition of their tax-exempt status". That is the loosely enforced amendment that has prevented religious leaders from talking politics since the 1950's.

The 6-foot, 176-pound Hischier led the QMJHL rookie class with 38 goals and 86 points in 57 games this season. Maple Leafs fans will remember that it was in Ottawa where Auston Matthews made his spectacular National Hockey League debut.

Yet the Penguins have scored nine goals, compared to four for the Capitals.

With Game 2 in Washington on Saturday night, Bonino knows it will be hard to take a 2-0 series lead with the same showing. Nino Niederreiter was taken fifth overall by the New York Islanders in 2010.

Ready for playoff hockey?

The Stanley Cup Playoffs didn't officially end on Saturday in Washington D.C. It just felt that way.

"This is a big day for our franchise", said general manager Ron Hextall, who was an assistant general manager with Los Angeles in 2007 when it was Paul Holmgren's team in Philadelphia.

Taking a penalty and going down a man usually lowers a team's chances of scoring. Michael Grabner, Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan also scored and Lundqvist stopped 28 shots. The four teams that played Saturday combined to have only two power-play goals. Climbing out of that will be especially challenging with the next two games in Pittsburgh, and what were once strengths for the team - defense and goaltending - now seem to be weaknesses. "There's going to be times when they come at us, and there are going to be times when we go at them".
