Hi, Roger. I'm using your second link, a bit blurry, but the only one that works for me right now.

Pens scored, Holtby was screened, apparently.

1-0 for the ugly guys.

Let's go, Caps!

Delayed penalty against the Caps.

A good shot but Holtby makes the save.

Pens to the PP after the break.

The goal was Oleksiak's first of the playoffs, assisted by Sheary and Brassard.

We don't care, anyway. Only the goals scored by the Caps are interesting.

So it is Niskanen for holding.

Crosby is always alone. Fortunately, he didn't manage to score on his two chances so far.

He switched from Holtby's left to his right, and got another chance.

A good save by Holtby on Sheary.

And Guentzel dangerous.

Killed. Pens still pressing.

That was a hard kill, Holtby was busy.

Pens score... radio describes it as Caps on their heels, man in the box now but they kill it...

Caps to the PP 9:56 left 1st.

Wow, Ovechkin with a great shot, I thought it would go in. And there's a delayed penalty against the Pens at the same moment. They touch the puck quickly, so there's a whistle.

Caps to the PP after the break. They need this one.

Ovechkin was hooked by Ruhwedel, that was the penalty.

Pens with a big short-handed chance. Good job, Holtby.

Oshie wide on a one-timer.

Kuznetsov wide.

I especially fear the shots from the blue line that get blocked.

Killed.

Too many turnovers. Caps must be more careful on passes. Any pass missed anywhere on the ice can lead to a goal.

Won't work for me. So I wrote a song about it: a blues...

Ain't got no stream,
can't watch no game.
Ain't got no stream,
Ain't that a shame.
Ain't got no stream,
Who all's to blame?

I pays my rent,
I pays my dues,
I takes my bath,
I wears my shoes.
Don't know what's wrong,
why I wrote this song.

Ain't got no stream,
can't watch no game.
Ain't got no stream,
Ain't that a shame.
Ain't got no stream,
Who the hell's to blame?

So the Caps must remember how they were all over the Pens in game 3 and do it again.

Wow, Holtby with huge saves. Caps were playing like crap, Holtby was big. Caps must wake up.

Caps get a little help from the Pens. Stupid offensive penalty against Simon for tripping Niskanen behind the net.

This time, Caps...

Icing Caps, on the PP. It seems Kuznetsov won the race, but the refs didn't see that.

No damage, back to offensive zone.

CARLSON!!!!! Woohoo! 1-1.

He had room for a pass to Ovechkin. Not at the start, but once he had moved to the middle. But he believed in his shot, and it went through traffic.

And CONNOLLY now!!! Woohoo!

Out of nowhere.

2-1 Caps.

It was deflected by Hornqvist, thank you very much.

Now Caps must press them like that. It's the right moment to score another one.

Got to admit I've been strumming and looking up when Walton gets excited on the radio (radio is about 20 seconds ahead of the stream)...

Faceoffs 44%, 8-10.

Stevenson, Smith-Pelly ( :o ) 1-0
Eller 2-1
Kuz 2-2
Beagle, Backstrom 1-2
Gersich 0-1
Oshie... 0-2

And gotta kill 1:58 to start the 2nd... they got this!

Let's go, Caps!!!!!!?

:D

3-on-1 for the Pens, no goal.

Another odd-man rush, Haglin... Holtby the save.

Smith-Pelly in the box.

Holtby grabs a one-timer by Kessel.

Oh, crap, Hornqvist scores on the rebound.

3-2 Pens.

Caps, stay out of the box, please.

Mostly they have to break the Pens' offense. They must fight for every puck, not watch the Pens play. If they do that, they'll manage to create things. They don't have the puck enough.

Stephenson is offside. It would have been a good chance.

Let's go, Caps!

Holtby with a pair of important saves.

Vrana, great pass to Carlson, who delays too much his shot.

EDIT: Before that, great pass by Vrana to Malkin, LOL.

Holtby is having a great game. Murray is not tested as much.

Caps must find a way to have the puck more often. Murray is not a sure thing. Caps must shoot from any angle and any distance.
