Linesman Barton Leaves Jackets-Capitals Game With Injury

Linesman Barton Leaves Jackets-Capitals Game With Injury Linesman Barton Leaves Jackets-Capitals Game With Injury

"Obviously we have opportunities to finish it up, but we didn't, two games in a row", Alex Ovechkin said. When we're gonna play third game, it doesn't matter what happen tonight. It's something we thought they would've learned from a season ago. "We have to win and we didn't do it". If they can clean up those areas while playing in a hostile environment, they will have a good chance in Game 3.

The Capitals had outshot the Blue Jackets 17-7 and won 22 of 37 faceoffs. Game 3 will go Wednesday evening from Nationwide Arena. Game 3 is more crucial than ever for the Capitals, who can't afford to lose another close, winnable game.

This feels like a two-parter.

The Blue Jackets were called for eight penalties in Game 2 and still managed to win, but not before T.J. Oshie almost made them pay by forcing overtime with a late-game power-play strike. The goaltender with a history of playoff struggles looked like his two-time Vezina Trophy-winning self in making 54 saves as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 on Sunday night on Matt Calvert's overtime victor to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.

The Capitals do have reasons for optimism, even with forward Andre Burakovsky out for at least the next two games because of an upper-body injury. The Blue Jackets have gone 26-15 here at home for the year and they have averaged 2.76 gpg and have allowed 2.37 gpg in those games.

"For the player, it's frustrating", Trotz said.

After Holtby struggled for a stretch in February into March, he finished the regular season by winning five of his final six starts. Brooks Orpik, Matt Niskanen and Chandler Stephenson each have been on the ice for three of the four goals allowed.

Grabbing the win in game two was Sergei Bobrovsky, who stopped 54 of the 58 shots that he faced in the game to improve to 5-10 with a 3.55 GAA and a.892 save percentage in the playoffs in his career. The next guy up will be Jakub Vrana.

And after Ovechkin's second power-play goal of the night gave the Capitals a 3-1 lead early in the second period, they completely imploded. The top line hasn't converted an even-strength goal yet.

"He's going to miss some time here", Coach Barry Trotz said Monday. But he couldn't control the puck, and the scoring chance went awry. We made some adjustments. "Maybe we should just work on a more serious game".

The Capitals keep shooting themselves in the foot with undisciplined penalties that have led to power-play goals and breakdowns that have led to goals off odd-man rushes. But we're going to do everything to turn things around.

"We need to defend better", said John Carlson, whose job description is to do just that.

Left winger Matt Calvert tallied the game-winner when he controlled a rebound in front of Washington's backup net-minder, Braden Holtby, and jammed it into the back of the net. If not for a yeoman 54-save effort from Columbus goalie Boris Bobrovsky-plus a little bad luck, like a shot that hit the post late in regulation-the Capitals might be headed to Columbus even in the series and rising in confidence. "Yeah, I have absolute confidence in both goalies", he said. "Obviously, things didn't go the way we wanted them to go, but I've got a lot of belief in this group, that we can go to Columbus and take it one at a time". They've dominated Columbus's porous penalty kill.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise scored power-play goals in the first period for the spark Minnesota was missing on the road, and the Wild used a four-goal second to roar back against Winnipeg the Western Conference series. As of Monday morning, Carlson leads the National Hockey League with six playoff assists, most coming as secondary assists that facilitate big plays.
