Back. Yesterday's link with choice of bitrate works, now. Go, Caps!

Oh, crap, Holtby has to stop a good chance.

Wow, Burakovsky!!! Top class move and shot.

Crosby not happy.

1-1.

First intermission, 1-1.

Before the goal, Caps also created a good chance on a kind of counter-attack by Johansson. They may not need to dominate the game, because the Pens are very efficient in quick counter-attacks, so they're OK with being dominated.

Or at least, if Caps dominate, they must put more rubber in the net. It can't be chances: 10-1 Caps, and score: 1-0 Pens.

Burakovsky really looked like Ovechkin and Kuznetsov on that fabulous shot. That kid was a point-per-game player at some point last season. He must keep playing like that.

Ovechkin has flattened one.

Ovechkin and Wilson on the same line, it must hurt (for others).

What a good shot by Schmidt. Caps had a couple good minutes.

Schmidt to the box for holding, though.

Kessel rings iron and it's in! 2-1 Pens.

Burakovsky looking good on that top line. I would have kept the lines like they were, though. Caps mostly lacked luck in the last game.

Oh, Kuznetsov! Would have been nice.

They don't look too organized to me.

Why are we going through this? They're trailing in the first of three elimination games, hehe. Caps have no pity for their fans.

Anyway, "now all games are game 7", like Ovechkin said. So we need Mr Game 7 to help. Williams has been rather invisible in this game.

Caps in a bad situation, especially when Johansson lost his stick for a few seconds.

But Williams draws a penalty. He had lost the puck but he got stupidly stripped. Caps on the PP.

A few chances on the PP. Not good enough. Killed.

Crosby taken down, no call (didn't look illegal).

Then Williams holds a guy after losing his stick, no call either.

Caps can't take a shot in the last seconds, but at least they didn't have to face one.

So now the Caps have 20 minutes to save their playoffs.

The next goal is huge.

If there is any.
