Capitals complete comeback, win series against Blue Jackets 4-2

Washington Capitals take series against Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2

Two goals and four points in the first three games. Admittedly, Ovechkin didn't make an impact on the scoresheet in Washington's Game 5 victory - he did have seven shots, though - but he made up for that in Game 6 by bagging his fourth and fifth goals of the series to help the Capitals clinch the series. But by now we know the Penguins win on the backs of their biggest three stars (Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel), who they sometimes spread across three lines, and the deadline addition of Derick Brassard gives Pittsburgh its best 1-2-3 punch down the middle since Jordan Staal left in 2012. So, we have to play better before, a little bit.

"That's the important moment and I thought I could step up in this moment", Bobrovsky said.

Of more recent vintage, and of more relevance to this series, the Penguins have eliminated the Capitals in the second round each of the past two postseasons. "It seems like we nearly like it when an opposing team's crowd gets into it. He can back a defense up, he can clear out space for us to make plays underneath him, and as you saw tonight, chip pucks by and do it on his own", Oshie said. Fifteen of the saves were in the third period when the desperate Blue Jackets turned up the heat. After going 4 for 8 with a man advantage in the first two games, the Blue Jackets were 0 for 16 in the last four.

This point was not mentioned as much in the series preview, but it ended up being a huge game changer in this series. For whatever reason, it dried out.

The first of two goals scored by Alex Ovechkin came off a rebound of a shot that Bobrovsky probably didn't need to stop. The Pens have won nine of the past 10 series. This would change after losing the first two games at home, starting Braden Holtby in Game Three.

"It's a new year", Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang said.

Foligno got his first of the playoffs halfway through the second when he snapped a shot past Holtby from the right circle.

The Blue Jackets had just pulled to 3-2 early in the third period, and the long-suffering faithful in Nationwide Arena were up on their feet waving white shirts, chanting "CBJ! CBJ!" He has 51 goals in 103 career playoff games, the second-best per game rate (.495 gpg) among active players to play in at least 50 playoff games, behind only Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov (.54 gpg), who has played exactly 50 playoff games. Other than the top line, the only other player to have more than one goal was Nick Foligno. Stevenson got a short-handed goal 1 1/2 minutes later to pad it.

"Trotz and the coaching staff has put a lot of trust in me", Stephenson said. The difficult thing for the Jackets is that they are in a hard division. The Capitals had already dropped the first two games of their first round series against the Blue Jackets, and for a time Tuesday night, dual D.C. sweeps was an all-too-real and humiliating possibility.
