Penguins chase Holtby, beat Capitals to take 2-0 series lead

Damon Campbell | 06 May, 2017, 03:14

Maybe there was a Bible app on there.

"I've been around it my whole life", said Guentzel, taken by the Penguins in the third round of the 2013 draft.

Pittsburgh Penguins left wing Carl Hagelin (62), of Sweden, chases the puck against Washington Capitals center Marcus Johansson (90), also of Sweden, and center Lars Eller (20), of Denmark, during the first period of Game 2 in an. Washington had 35 in the loss but Marc-Andre Fleury made 33 saves.

"We've got to get our shots through and around the blocks", Trotz said.

"I have a lot of confidence in him", Trotz said. "Seriously. That's the change in our team. He was the one guy that was going to step up for us". We're not backing off.

Sounds great. But you can understand why the question was being asked. "I would have been more disappointed if I didn't".

The puck stayed like that for MINUTES, and the second period finished with not one but two pucks in play. "When teams want to play an aggressive game against us, there's risk reward and so when we get high quality opportunities, that's when we believe our quick strike capability is at its best". It'll be interesting to see where Hagelin slots in the lineup in Game 3, specifically if we see the HBK line back together for a full game.

Trotz is right in that there's room for improvement.

And now Guentzel finds himself one of the biggest assets for the Penguins as they try to become the first team in almost 20 years to win back-to-back Cups.

Where does it start?

Skjei had two goals for NY and Michael Grabner, Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan also scored.

Rather than doubling down on what had worked, the Capitals then got antsy, forsaking their methodical offensive approach in search of more immediate gratification.

Game 2: Blues at Predators, 3 p.m. ET, NBC (Series tied 1-1) - The Predators had won five straight games in the playoffs, sweeping the Blackhawks in the first round and then winning Game 1 of the second-round series. He has made people forget about Matt Murray's injury.

Holtby came into the postseason with the best save percentage ever-.938-but he hasn't had that kind of success this spring. Washington doesn't need Holtby to steal anything - the Caps are good enough to win on merit - but there can't be a gap between the two goalies. The Penguins face defeated rival Washington in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Thursday, thanks in no small part to the kid with the boyish face and all-grown-up game. Some are tentative. Some tend to try not to make mistakes. The Penguins are obviously in an ideal position up 2 games to 0, yet it's still somewhat of a precarious one to be in. The goal is to win four out of seven, and it really doesn't matter how you do that.

According to data tracked by analyst Dimitri Filipovic, Schmidt was successful on 15 of 15 zone-exit attempts, leaving with the puck 13 times. The Capitals are 6-for-22 on the man advantage through the playoffs so far.

Game 3 should be a fascinating crossroads of where this series goes. Capitals RW T.J. Oshie had an assist and has earned nine points (three goals, six assists) in eight games this postseason. So now it's about breaking every single game down, focusing on the moment, living in the moment, not worrying about statistics or the standings in the series.
