Capitals beat Blue Jackets to advance to 2nd round

Capitals beat Blue Jackets to advance to 2nd round

At least, not this year.

The Capitals will again move onto the conference semifinals after being eliminated by Pittsburgh in the second round in each of the past two seasons.

The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins will renew their annual tradition of meeting in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with Game 1 set for Thursday at 7 p.m. 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. The reassurance and comfort level that comes with knowing you've got a goaltender you can trust behind you can be huge for the rest of a lineup. Now, the dial goes up to 11 and stays there.

"It's always been a fun series to watch", said center Riley Sheahan, whom the Penguins acquired in October.

Washington's 27 power plays were the most of any team in the first round, and they finished first in power play goals (9) and conversion rate (33.3 percent).

"You feel like you've crossed that barrier?" he was asked.




"Beginning of the series, our power play was going", said Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno, who scored twice Monday. "I was good in the playoffs". Let us know in the comments section below. But I did what I could. The Jackets experienced firsthand why it's important to have good special teams. Both set franchise scoring records for defensemen with 16 goals apiece. It wasn't a bad performance - Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 32 shots - but he proceeded to allow nine goals on the 56 shots he faced through Games 5 and 6, and that was all she wrote for the Blue Jackets. Alex Ovechkin was the hero of the day, bagging two goals.

Worse for Washington, if the Penguins win this series, they will have ended a full half of the Capitals' past 20 playoff runs dating to 1991. The only time the Capitals have triumphed over their division rivals was in 1994 when the Caps won a first-round series in six games. "But again, it is what it is".

A mantra Crosby's teammates repeated over and over they prepared for yet another showdown in a rivalry that somehow manages to be both compelling and one-sided. Bobrovsky - considered one of the league's best goaltenders but also one that has developed a reputation for wilting in the playoffs - poked at Stephenson as he approached the crease and was left exposed.

TORONTO (AP) - Frederik Andersen stopped 32 shots to help Toronto force a decisive Game 7 in the first-round series.

Bobrovsky now has a 3.49 GAA and.891 save percentage in 24 career playoff games.
