Capitals Lose to Penguins in Game One Despite Deserving Win

We know Fleury is on fire, but how long will he be able to bail out the Pens? Then Kuznetsov scored his first, finishing a powerful shift by hitting the empty net at 8:05 of the third period off a tape-to-tape pass from Niskanen. That's a shout out to second-line center Evgeny Kuznetsov, who struggled after March previous year but played an essential part of the first-round series this season against the Toronto Maple Leafs by defending Auston Matthews.



Penguins just now finding their groove going into East final

Again, the Penguins won, this time 2-0. The victor will then face either the Penguins or Senators for the Stanley Cup. No player is going to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP if his team doesn't win the Stanley Cup. Murray was 1-1-1 with a 2.28 GAA and a.926 save percentage.

Penguins put Capitals on the brink of National Hockey League playoff failure, again

The Capitals insist it's not mental, though at times they were their own worst enemy. That's sort of how it's looking for Marc-Andre Fleury these days. The Capitals tied it 2-2 with goals 1:12 apart later in the second from Kuznetsov and Schmidt, both from the left circle. They still have three of the top four postseason scorers in Evgeni Malkin , Phil Kessel, and Jake Guentzel , and a supporting cast that could put this series away.



LeBron James continues Playoff domination as Cavs win again

Save for a pair of back-to-back 3-pointers from Kyle Korver to close the third quarter and give Cleveland a two-point lead heading into the fourth, the Raptors played as well as they have all postseason, despite being without the services of All-Star Kyle Lowry.
