After losing the first two games at home, the Capitals completed the comeback by taking the next four games in a row. Brian Elliott did his best to stop the Penguins onslaught.
When Aston-Reese was playing, it'd been nearly three decades since Northeastern had won Boston's renowned annual "Beanpot" four-school tournament.
"That", Aston-Reese said, "was something I was pretty bitter about while at school".
The thing is, it's not all that uncommon for Ovechkin to produce when crunch time comes around in a series.
The Capitals won four straight games over the Columbus Blue Jackets after fumbling the first two in overtime at home, capping their opening-round playoff series with a 6-3 victory Monday night in Game 6. The Penguins managed to top the Capitals in each of the last two years. They made it close in the third period and then Bob let them down. It doesn't end well for one side. " "Hatred" seems like a strong word, but it's something inside you that grows". This year's matchup will mark the 11th time these two teams will meet in the playoffs. The Penguins don't particularly care who Washington has in net.
Chandler Stephenson - The Capitals' rookie LW had a goal and an assist in at Columbus, the second straight game in which he's recorded two points. Artemi Panarin (seven points), Pierre-Luc Dubois (four points) and Cam Atkinson (four points) combined to have 15 points and 46 shots on goal in six games.

Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and Sergei Gonchar (then a player, now an assistant coach) were with the Penguins when they got past the Capitals during the 2009 second round. The Penguins were a ideal 5-0 in Philadelphia this season.
Then something amusing happened. John Carlson was with the Capitals in 2009 but did not appear in the playoffs.
The start time of Game 1 of the Second Round series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals has been set for 7 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 26, in Washington. T.J. Oshie, who had a very disappointing season relative to expectations, had a solid series.
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. "The game is going to be won differently". I got lucky, you know?
But it all started to get back on track in 2018 - Pittsburgh was 13th in goals against from January 1 onwards, and became a top 10 team in even strength goals in the 2018 portion of the schedule with Murray improving to a.912 save percentage in the second half as well. The aggregate score of those 20 games is 63-55, not at all lopsided.
It could also be advisable to play Joonas Korpisalo more next season so that Bobrovsky is better rested for the playoffs. "And it makes the rivalry that much more heated, makes it that much more fun". Just because they always beat Washington doesn't mean they're going to always beat Washington. Despite their good performance against the Flyers, the Penguins know they must elevate their game in the next in hopes of keeping their championship dreams alive. We've got a lot of young guys in the room.
