Capitals replace Holtby in goal for 3rd period of Game 2

This is perhaps this group's last best chance to win the Stanley Cup, after winning the Presidents' Trophy for the second straight season, before dealing with expiring contracts and salary-cap issues in the offseason, and now it is in serious jeopardy against their bitter rivals.

After the game, the Capitals had a closed door team meeting, where Niklas Backstrom spoke to the room. We're not going to shy away from it. They controlled the puck. Before the event, Mr. Trump signed two more executive orders on trade, as he continued to follow through on his tough talk from before and after the election, vowing to do more to protect U.S.jobs at home from what he says are unfair practices by Canada, Mexico, and other nations.

The Capitals outshot the Penguins 16-5 in the first period and 36-24 by the end of the game, a showcase of pure dominance. Thus far in the 2017 playoffs, the winger already has 11 points with seven assists and four goals, two of which came Saturday night.

Pittsburgh Penguins left wing Carl Hagelin (62), of Sweden, chases the puck against Washington Capitals center Marcus Johansson (90), also of Sweden, and center Lars Eller (20), of Denmark, during the first period of Game 2 in an. Kevin Shattenkirk, the trade-deadline acquisition who was supposed to put Washington over the top, was beaten for a shorthanded goal by Pittsburgh's Matt Cullen and took a silly delay penalty that led to a Penguins power-play score. Game 2 of the series featured matching hat tricks between Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin in one of the most memorable games in playoff history.

Pageau scored again 2:54 into the second OT, snapping in a shot during a 2-on-1 rush alongside Tommy Wingels. While Pittsburgh won Game 1, they likely aren't too proud of how they played. After surrendering three goals over 40 minutes, Holtby was on the bench for the third frame. It didn't work. There were only mo' problems. It would be a matchup of the two best players in hockey, but I think the Penguins overall experience and skill would beat them out. Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik said, not finishing the sentence.

Pence reaffirms refugee deal with Australia despite reservations
Also, Pence was to meet with the Australian opposition Labor Party leader Bill Shorten and with some business executives. Mr Pence also praised Australia for calling on China to exert greater economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea.

HollywoodLifers, who do you think will take the win? "When he didn't change the game, I just looked to change the mojo a little bit there, that's all". "That's what they live off of". In an eventual 6-2 victory, the Pens showed why they are defending champs. They have controlled 42.61 percent of the shot attempts 5-on-5, tied for worst in the playoffs, but are 6-1. They dominated territorially and tested Fleury but couldn't crack him as the teams went through another first period without a goal.

Then the quick-strike Penguins were at it again.

Hockey is a team game, but every once in a while one guy picks his team up and carries them to the finish line. I don't need to go into details.

It also happened to be a first period that involved the Penguins facing a barrage of shots from an aggressive Capitals team. "We're just not doing quite enough". The Capitals have leveled some good hits on the Penguins, and it has resulted in nothing.

With Washington still on the power play, Niskanen, all alone in the slot, beat Fleury on a one-timer off a pass from Ovechkin.
