The Penguins, NHL can't get story straight on Sidney Crosby

Three goals in five minutes sparked sing-song chants of "FLEU-RY!"

The other key takeaway here is about how important the Penguins-Capitals series is for NBC.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals meet Wednesday in game seven of the second round National Hockey League playoffs at the Verizon Center.

Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury makes a save during the first period of Game 6 in an NHL Stanley Cup Eastern Conference semifinal hockey game against the Washington Capitals in Pittsburgh, Monday, May 8, 2017.

"Some of the things that we're trying to do are starting to have an effect", coach Barry Trotz said on a conference call Sunday. We took a deep breath and we kind of regrouped ourselves and said, 'Let's go after it in Game 5.' And it took until the third period of Game 5 to get going and get rewarded for it. I'm sure that you could poll 100 people, and 99 of them would say they'd rather play at home.

It wasn't unlike most of the first four games of the series, when Washington would control play for long stretches only to have Pittsburgh expertly counterpunch on its way to a 3-1 series lead. He was the much hotter goaltender than reigning Vezina Trophy victor and again finalist Braden Holtby, who outdueled him in an emotional Game 5 as the Capitals avoided elimination.

Haven't prepared much for Cannes this time: Sonam Kapoor
At a launch recently, she said that she has not prepared enough for her appearance this time. Sonam said she would have been stressed if she was walking the red carpet for a movie.

"We're going to have to be better", Oshie said.

"Yeah, we had a good game [Monday]".

The best moments were the times they got the puck past Fleury, the 2009 Stanley Cup victor who was Matt Murray's backup on the Penguins' title run a year ago and is only starting because of the 23-year-old's injury. Unfortunately, they would pick up only nine shots through two periods and 18 overall on Monday against the Capitals. Roman Josi had a goal and an assist, and Calle Jarnkrok added an empty-netter with 60 seconds left.

Game 7 is Wednesday night at Anaheim, with the victor advancing to face the Nashville Predators in the conference finals. "We just need to get the job done and learn from these (games)". The Capitals controlled play throughout. Sullivan said, and he did not elaborate. "He's made save after save for us".

The Alex Ovechkin-led Capitals have been business-like, gritty and determined since falling behind 2-0 in the series. "I think we can do a better job in front of him".

Through six games, the Capitals have out-shot Pittsburgh 200-134. Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nicklas Backstrom have been excellent in the series.

Most Active Volume Stock: Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (HTZ)
The current share price indicates that stock is -81.37% away from its one year high and is moving -2.46% ahead of its 52-week low. Finally, Gamco Investors INC. 02/25/2016 - Hertz Global Holdings, Inc had its "buy" rating reiterated by analysts at Citigroup.

In this case, the players and teams have to be saved from themselves. They just want to win. "That's a game we thought we probably should have had".

A week after Sidney Crosby sustained the fourth concussion of his National Hockey League career via a cross-check from Matt Niskanen, the Pittsburgh Penguins captain suffered another hit to the head. He lamented some struggles for his line, but expressed no concerns about his health. "There were some chances there. I think there were some chances to be had there a few times and we just didn't execute". Pittsburgh has won each of the three previous deciding games, the last in 2009 in Washington on its way to the Stanley Cup.

Rangers confident: Though his team trails its East series 3-2, Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said he believes his team's experience gives it an edge against the Senators, whom NY hosts Tuesday in a do-or-die game for the Rangers.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Ryan Johansen scored the game-winning goal 3:15 into the third period, and Nashville advanced to its first Western Conference final in franchise history Sunday by beating St. Louis to take the series in six games.

In Game 5, the Penguins looked like they might actually close out the series after the first two periods. It has been quite a ride for the Washington Capitals.
