Penguins Round 2 Schedule

Penguins Round 2 Scheduleā€

Washington hit the ground running on the special teams, with Alexander Ovechkin leading the charge on the man advantage.

This is the third straight year the Penguins will begin Round 2 on the road against the Capitals. They were stunning at times - like in the first two games, both won in OT - but glaringly not good enough the rest of the way.

So, how did Washington turn a potential early exit into a trip to the second round? And unlike the first round where every evening game was played at 7:30 pm, Game One will start at 7 PM. But the headline-grabber wasn't Ovechkin.

Naturally, Blue Jackets fans were not very happy with Monday's proceedings. His performance had shifted the offensive tide. Just like the last three times, they failed to advance past the first round.

Sergei Bobrovsky - Columbus' goaltender allowed five goals on 27 shots in a 6-3 Game Six loss to Washington. Checking winger Matt Calvert, for example, led the team with three goals and had the best possession stats (59.5 CF%, 64.6 SCF%) in the series. "He said, 'I don't think I'm going to get to 50".

If Boston advances, the start time of Game 1 of the Second Round series between the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning would be set for 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 28, in Tampa.

Bergeron back skating for Bruins
Washington coach Barry Trotz said his team is accustomed to managing overtime games and then coming back. Marchand snapped a 1-1 tie with 3:05 left in the second period after the Bruins were whistled for icing.

With 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in six playoff games this season, center Sidney Crosby has passed Mario Lemieux for the most points in Penguins history with 177 (63 goals, 114 assists) in 154 games. Come playoff time that is when those players show up. In the previous 10 times, the Capitals have only one playoff series in 1994. Reason being is that despite being a two-time Vezina Trophy-winning netminder, despite having a.922 save percentage - the second-best mark - of the 80 netminders to suit up in 100-plus games since the lockout-shortened season, Bobrovsky has had trouble getting the job done in the playoffs. Prior to game four, Sean Couturier would be out of the lineup as a result of an injury he sustained in practice.

The Capitals will next face Pittsburgh in the second round of the playoffs for a third straight year. Wennberg had two points in three games. There are a few points of emphasis to look at to see why the Capitals bested the Blue Jackets. No problem wearing that. Heading into Philadelphia, the Penguins picked up where they left off in the regular season. Frankly, it seemed like a relative no-brainer to go with Grubauer.

Kuznetsov led Capitals forwards with 19:04 per game at even strength. But in the final three games, he laid a goose egg.

Mitch Marner continues to make a difference in the postseason. Sure, Holtby faced slightly fewer attempts and shots per 60 minutes of 5-on-5 play, but the rate of scoring chances and high-danger chances actually increased once he took the crease.

Holtby, 28, the 2016 Vezina Trophy victor as the best National Hockey League goaltender, has always been good enough in the first round.

As for this game it was disappointing as the Jackets played really well but couldn't score.
