Great scrum around 6:50 left 2nd... works out to a 5 on 4 for the Pens- Ovechkin and Wilson for Caps, Oleksiak on the Pens...

killed with a HUGE save from Niskanen, 2 SOGs on it...

4:05 they go 4 on 4... and a a fasiled Caps clear, a couple of sharp passes, the last to Crosby, and it'S 3-2 Pens with 1:28 of 4 on 4 to go...

Pen to the box for too many at 1:02 left 2nd...

3-2 Pens with a little PP coming for the Caps to start the 3rd.

Milbury used my exact words on the Wilson hit- "Hit the shoulder, rode up through to the head..."

3rd period is going to be some fun playoff hockey.

Caps with 12 (count 'em) 12 SOGs after 2...

Caps are playing well enough tonight, and the Pens are in the comfort zone. All the penalties have kept the bottom 6 ice time way down, and they still got a goal (so far). Stay out of the box in the 3rd, and those 6 guys should feast on some tired legs for the Pens.
