Washington Capitals likely without T.J. Oshie for rest of playoffs

Washington Capitals likely without T.J. Oshie for rest of playoffs

Blake Comeau scored his first playoff goal for the Stars, tying the game at 1-1 in the second period. The last time the Caps went to Game 7 was last season in the Eastern Conference Final against Tampa, where they won 4-0.

The Capitals look as if they've found the swagger that led them to winning the Stanley Cup previous year and can eliminate the Hurricanes in Game 6 on Monday night, while the Nashville Predators face elimination down 3-2 on the road against the Dallas Stars.

"We're more prepared mentally and emotionally to handle stuff than we've ever been", MacLellan said before Game 1. Instead, they wrapped up a series on home ice for the first time since 2008.

Coach Peter Laviolette had said that his team would win after Game 5.

"It's something where the fans can definitely have an impact from the aspect of if it gets loud, they can impact a game and teams can feed off their home-ice advantage", Dowd said. They know the more games you play, the harder it gets. In a game that turned into a battle between Pekka Rinne and Ben Bishop, Dallas's John Klingberg would be the one to solve the puzzle with a beauty of a wrister 17:02 into overtime. But the top-end talent is still in place to finish a series win against Carolina, and even without a top-six forward another deep playoff run can't be ruled out.

Oshie missed Game 5 on Saturday, which Washington won 6-0 to take a 3-2 series lead.

Russell Westbrook 'a man of his word,' Thunder teammate Paul George says
When asked about the dunk, George reiterated Westbrook's last answer in a tense news conference by saying: "Next question". Paul George and particularly Russell Westbrook have been abysmal from three-point range through two games so far.

"We answered the bell", said Williams - known as "Mr".

"I said at the start of the series that if they're going to knock us out, we're not going to do it easy", he said. The Hurricanes have dominated this series five-on-five, only for the Capitals' power play to pull them through at home. The survey also found there are other rules the players are less thrilled with, ranging from delay-of-game penalties to confusion about goalie interference.

Isabelle Khurshudyan and Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post: Washington Capitals forward T.J. But Carolina managed to quickly tie up the game when Warren Foegele ripped a turnaround shot five seconds after a Canes power play. Goaltender Braden Holtby held up his end, stopping all of Carolina's shots in Game 5. It was a complete performance from the Capitals and one that is impacting the line for Game 6.

As Evgeny Kuznetsov tried to tuck the puck under Petr Mrazek's pads with 9:26 remaining, Ovechkin charged in but skated into Mrazek as he appeared to push the puck into the net. Nashville's top line of Ryan Johansen, Viktor Arvidsson and Forsberg finished the series with a combined two goals and two assists.

Justin Williams cringes at "Mr". He's been steadily booed since his Game 3 fight with Carolina rookie Andrei Svechnikov, which ended with the 19-year-old fellow Russian in the concussion protocol after taking several blows to the face then banging his head on the ice as he fell.

Staal gave the Hurricanes their first lead of the game at 3:51 of the third period, following a scramble in front of Holtby.
