Concussion spotter couldn't pull Crosby for hitting boards

Probably not for the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks.

Concussed on May 1, Sidney Crosby returned five days later and didn't look at his best Monday after crashing headfirst into the boards. "I think it just knocked the wind out of me but felt fine".

Fleury has allowed nine goals on 58 shots the past two games after nine on 142 shots the first four games against the Capitals. The new policy allowed independent "Central League Spotters" monitoring a game via television from the league's Player Safety Room in NY to order a player be removed from a game if he showed "visible signs" of a concussion.

Ducks coach Randy Carlyle didn't blame Gibson and said it's about the entire team being better. In those nine Game 7s, Ovechkin has three goals and three assists, and at the moment he is earning praise from teammates and coach Barry Trotz in this series for accepting a

"I just got tripped up there going pretty fast and went into the boards pretty awkwardly". If Fleury has sprung a leak, the Capitals have the talent from Ovechkin down to make him pay.

Why wasn't he pulled from the game after the head-first collision into the boards? So he can't do that this whole series. "We're going to have to push them out".

However, when Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan was asked if he was concerned during the game and if Crosby had been evaluated, he simply answered "No" to both questions.

"I thought he was solid", Sullivan said. The goals they scored were good goals.

All series the Capitals have been aiming to play better in front of Holtby, who had his best game of the series Saturday in stopping 20 of 22 shots. The Penguins got a power play, making it easier to hang on for a win.

"It doesn't matter, leaders or not leaders, top six, bottom six", said Evgeny Kuznetsov, who scored the Game 5 victor. "I think they're the better team right now, so hopefully they play that way".

Boudreau, who is 1-7 in his National Hockey League coaching career in Game 7 after success in that spot in the minors, thinks goaltending will be the difference.

Is it because it's the playoffs, and he's Sidney Crosby? He lamented some struggles for his line, but expressed no concerns about his health.

Crosby practiced without complications with the Penguins on Tuesday. "There were some chances there".

"We're just trying to shoot where there is open spot", Kuznetsov said.

What the Penguins need to do if they want to take the next step in becoming the first Stanley Cup champion in almost 20 years to repeat is pretty clear. In beating the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist to put Ottawa up 3-2 in the series, Turris joined Devin Setoguchi, Martin St. Louis, Niclas Wallin, Danny Gare, Rene Robert and Mel Hill in the record books and passed Daniel Alfredsson for the most in franchise history. I don't know how you can argue against that now after this series. "This is going to be an opportunity for our team to respond and to play a strong game in a pressure situation".

Game seven will start tomorrow at 6:30 CT and I am looking for the Penguins to rip the hearts out of the Capitals. The Predators will face either the Anaheim Ducks or Edmonton Oilers for the right to come out of the West.
