Penguins' Crosby passes concussion test, might play Game 5

Carl Grundstrom did end up making his debut, and he also scored one of the five goals. The champagne was on ice while the Washington faithful sat in somber silence with the Capitals trailing entering the third period.

In the 2016 playoffs the Pens dropped a Game 5 elimination opportunity against the Capitals in Washington, only to finish the job in Game 6 at home - with the famous Nick Bonino overtime goal that inspired the Punjabi "Bonino!"

"You still don't trust me?" "I thought that goal was avoidable". "I liked the response of our leadership". The series now heads back to Pittsburgh on Monday for Game 6, and the Capitals will find out if they have a shot at writing a new script this year. Braden Holtby got a big piece of Hagelin's wrist shot but could not prevent it from crossing the line. Nicklas Backstrom, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Alexander Ovechkin all found the back of the net to lead the Capitals to victory in the third period.

"I love coaching in these moments, too", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. "If we do, it's because we believe it's a good line and they potentially could be a difference maker for us". "So even if he said it, you know it yourself if you have a bad game or a good game". Holtby, pulled for the final period of Game 2 at home seven days earlier, stopped all 12 shots he faced in the final period and dove to smother a rebound after Sidney Crosby's backhander trickled out of the crease. "Top players make other people better and I said it's no different than Phil Kessel being on [Pittsburgh's] third line past year, that had a lot of impact for the Penguins".

Burakovsky pumped some energy back in with a psychologically important goal with 29.7 seconds remaining in the first period, his first of the playoffs.

The Capitals won on Saturday night largely because of an absolute breakdown in the Penguins' defense that resulted in two Capitals goals in 27 seconds. Most importantly, though, Kunitz hasn't been on the ice for one even-strength goal allowed in the series.

Army arrests 12-year-old PoK boy along LoC in J&K
Reports said that a Sikh regiment unit of the Indian army destroyed a Pakistani bunker near the LoC in less than 60 seconds. After preliminary questioning, the Army handed over the boy to the police for further investigation.

"All it's going to take is all we have, and all we have is our leadership, the 20 players we dress". Here are some moments from the game. "If what you're doing isn't working, you have to do different things". “You see how we respond.”. "Everybody knew what they have to do". It's up to those star players (the envy of every other team in the NHL) to do something about this elimination game.

It's not just shots on goal where the Capitals are dominating, though, because putting so much rubber Fleury's way has also resulted in a sizeable advantage in scoring chances. He had two goals and two assists before leaving Game Three early.

Netminder Marc-Andre Fleury held the Capitals' lethal offensive corps at bay through the majority of the first four tilts, but the dam finally broke in Game 5 as Washington posted four goals - their highest total in the second round - to push Pittsburgh to Game 6.

Trotz "wouldn't be surprised" if he saw Crosby's familiar No. 87 on Saturday night. "That's just what we need". He earned a promotion to the top line because of his strong play in the series but scored back with the third line on a toe drag that bought him space and a shot that froze Fleury. I don't think you get away from that. I'm a player that should produce, and I haven't done that this series.

Lately, he's been putting on a show for his parents - who are here from Russian Federation - and the Capitals fans who have grown to love him for his dazzling puck-handling abilities, along with a little showmanship that occasionally reveals itself while flapping his arms like wings after big goals.

"We really liked him", McPhee said. "And that was the intent, and today we did".
