'Weird things happen:' Eller' game-winner sums up Capitals playoff hockey

Posted April 21, 2018

While the Leafs had bad luck in the first two games - though that wasn't their only problem, as the combined 12-4 score could attest - in Game 3 it was Pastrnak who hit the post on one shot and then Toronto's Frederik Andersen made great saves on two others, first with his glove and then with his stick.

While the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions haven't been flawless in that regard against Philadelphia, they haven't been derailed by a lack of discipline. Evgeny Kuznetsov (two power-play goals), Nicklas Backstrom (five power-play assists) and T.J. Oshie (one PPG, one PPA) have all contributed with the man-advantage but all three are still seeking their first even-strength point of the series.

The Washington Capitals' Lars Eller tapped a rebound shot past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky in the second overtime period to give them a 3-2 win in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. "We need to play with better discipline - especially when we have the lead twice". That's the way it is. He was the Capitals' No. 1 goaltender for most of this season, but Grubauer started 10 of their final 16 games after Holtby went through a rough eight-start stretch from February 11-March 6, when he was 1-5-2 with a 4.82 GAA and.854 save percentage and was pulled three times. Once Smith-Pelly dumped it to Connolly, Eller knew he might have an opportunity much like Calvert had for the Blue Jackets two nights earlier.

"It's on us as players to make sure we're mentally prepared to execute it". "But that's the game right now".

"We're down 2-0 and, obviously, we're playing a good hockey team". We didn't get what we wanted at home, and so our focus has to be on one game. "Both teams were really emotional at the beginning and you've got to worry about taking penalties and getting behind the eight ball". The Capitals are 13-5 in their last 18 overall, 6-0 in their last six on the road, 5-0 in their last five on the road against opponents with home winning percentages over.600, 7-3 in their last 10 against winning opponents, 11-4 in their last 15 against the Eastern Conference, and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams.

When we're gonna play third game, it doesn't matter what happen tonight. "That's an intent-to-injure play". Stevens, who was an assistant four years ago, said his team has "had some resilience all year", and the tightness of the games against Vegas combined with the excellence of goaltender Jonathan Quick certainly makes an turnaround possible.

The Wild revealed the injury about three hours before Game 4, with a vague announcement on Tuesday by general manager Chuck Fletcher that declared Parise's status as "week to week".
