Capitals' Tom Wilson will not be suspended for hit

Penguins erase 2-goal deficit beat Capitals 3-2 in Game 1

Pens-Caps: A familiar adversary in an exciting series

They are two of several players to have picked up the offensive part of their games to complement the Capitals' high-end skill players, making Washington a more balanced and unsafe team in many aspects of the game.

There was an obvious common denominator in every puck the Washington Capitals managed to get past Matt Murray on Sunday afternoon, every shot that sent the crowd at Capital One Arena into an absolute tizzy during a Game 2 win over the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins.

Harden scored 41 points and the Houston Rockets raced out to a huge lead and sailed to a win over the Jazz in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. "He's one of the best shots in the game, so pretty good shot off". "Whatever they decided, we were fine with". Sure, the Capitals have the regular season edge, holding a 23-21-8 record in the 52 meetings between the two teams in the post-lockout National Hockey League, but the Penguins have won and won often when it counts. I said hey, what's going on? "Obviously it's an emotional game and a lot of things happen". At the other end of the ice, the Caps have to be wondering what to do in net as they can't get any consistent play between the pipes. Both have missed the first two games against Washington. We have to focus on these two home games we have at hand. Wilson will be available for Game 3 Tuesday at Pittsburgh.

The Penguins' Brian Dumoulin was hit by Tom Wilson and Alexander Ovechkin.

"My view was that it's 100% a goal", Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.

Malkin and Dumoulin wore regular contact jerseys during the morning skate while Hagelin had a no-contact jersey. "Just going to keep going through it today like normally and try to come here ready to play". They carried a 4-3 lead into the late stages of the third period, but Mark Scheifele scored the tying goal for the Jets with Hellebuyck pulled for an extra skater at the 18:55 mark. Wilson was pressuring Dumoulin from behind as the Penguin moved the puck ahead from deep inside his defensive zone.

"Marchand came in with a little bit of a different role, more of antagonistic role, and has developed into one of the top-five players in the game", Jones said.

Says Connolly, with a shrug: "That's kind of where I like to shoot it". "He's been really good for us and I'm sure that'll continue". After Ovechkin ripped another shot into the back of the net 28 seconds into the third period, things looked bleak for the Pens, but they battled back. It just has to be a 60-minute effort.

"I don't think anybody really knew", Washington forward Brett Connolly said.

Wilson, who led the Capitals in penalty minutes during the regular season, had a meeting with the Department of Player Safety in the first round for a hit that injured Columbus Blue Jackets forward Alexander Wennberg, but Wilson was not suspended. The Capitals were able to generate pressure on two of their power-plays, converting on one of them.

"I don't think that has anything to do with it", Sullivan said.
