Your Stanley Cup dream is over — Columbus Blue Jackets

May JohnsonApr 25, 2018

And when the Blue Jackets had the Capitals in a two-nothing hole on the strength of back-to-back overtime victories, it sure felt as though it was going to be another year of the same what-went-wrong questions in Washington. Both teams took care of their business in the first round. Washington dropped the first two games of the series at home, leaving the Blue Jackets as the favorites to advance. They won the series, 4-2. Can Washington flip the script or will Pittsburgh can their dominance over Washington? Plekanec, who had two points in 17 regular-season games with Toronto, has four points (2 G, 2 A) in the series, while Marner has a team-leading eight points (2 G, 6 A) in six games... The teams split their four meetings during the regular season, with the Capitals wrapping up their third straight Metropolitan Division title with a 3-1 win in Pittsburgh on April Fool's Day. The Penguins were a flawless 5-0 in Philadelphia this season. They'd never won five straight before Sunday. They started the series with Philip Grubauer in net, mainly because he was so much better for them in net down the stretch.

But Aston-Reese has a pretty good idea how the Capitals feel in facing the Penguins, their longtime nemesis. Michael Neuvirth would eventually replace Elliott. He scored twice, fired 14 shots on goal and threw seven hits through Games 1 and 2, both of which were overtime losses for the Capitals. "They make a lot of plays". 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. As a result of their performances in the first round, the Penguins have become a heavy favorite to three-peat. The Pens can create matchup nightmares when they have game-breakers spread out over three different lines.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will face the Washington Capitals in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Jackets were unable to string two goals together and couldn't get themselves a lead.

When he put up a.925 SP through the first three games against the Capitals, however, Bobrovsky was looking as though he could be a difference-maker in the series.

Will Columbus make the post season next year? Nothing has come easy for Washington to this season. That came soon after the Blue Jackets survived overlapping penalties, including 32 seconds of a 5-on-3. Even though the Capitals lost in overtime, Holtby found his game that he lost. Letang and Braden Holtby. Dmitry Orlov had assists from Chandler Stephenson and Matt Niskanen to get the first goal of the game. After falling behind 2-0 in the series, Ovechkin guaranteed the Capitals would return home with the series all tied up, which they did, and his two goals in Game 6 gave the Capitals a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Against Pittsburgh, the Capitals need their veteran goalie to show the hockey world something transcendent.

Briefly: The Flames hired Bill Peters as head coach. I'm not just saying (Bobrovsky), but the whole team.
