NHL playoffs 2018: Capitals vs. Penguins preview and prediction

It will be the 11th time the two teams have met in the postseason. Fixing both the power play and penalty kill. They've done so three times in the Ovechkin era.

The Blue Jackets' promising season fizzled out in Game 6 of their opening-round series against the Washington Capitals. "I want us to realize the potential we have in here, and I want it to happen now". "It's going to be a huge series for us". The Capitals performed on both ends of special teams like a well-oiled machine. This was their best opportunity and they let it slip. There was no looking back from there as Holtby helped to right the ship and win the next four games in a row. The Pens allowed 50 goals in 13 October games, were 28th in even strength goals through the first two months of the season and Matt Murray struggled with a.904 save percentage as of December 31, which was 42nd-best at the time. Sometimes it's hard to roll against the hot hand. This season brought underwhelming underlying numbers and developed a goaltending controversy between a struggling Braden Holtby and backup Philipp Grubauer, which seems to have been resolved in the playoffs. He finished the series with a.900 save percentage. I got lucky, you know?

The Penguins are the Bizarro Capitals - a team without a Presidents' Trophy, but three Crosby-era Stanley Cups instead.

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!" In a season of broken records and firsts, the Blue Jackets failed to get out of the first round for the fourth time in four tries. The greatest goal scorer of his generation and perhaps in National Hockey League history has a huge monkey to get off his back and is looking forward to the challenge ahead.

Palestinian Electrical Engineer Shot to Death in Malaysia
Hamas once again encouraged Gazans to come to the border fence to southern Israel on Friday and confront Israeli troops. Witnesses at the scene had told him that the two suspects had "European features", the ambassador told Reuters.

Frederik Andersen - Toronto's netminder stopped 32 of 33 shots in a 2-1 Game Six win vs. Boston. Over the final four games of the series, he posted a.935 SP, allowing just nine goals against on 139 shots, and his.924 SP across his four-and-a-half games in the first round was actually slightly better than his expected SP.

A much better season from forward Cam Atkinson? Wennberg had two points in three games.

Chandler Stephenson had a goal and an assist, and Dimitry Orlov, Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller also tallied Monday for Washington, which never trailed in the game after prevailing in extra time in Game 5 on Saturday. He was a minus-three in those games. Heading into Philadelphia, the Penguins picked up where they left off in the regular season. The Wild have split with longtime general manager Chuck Fletcher after the team's first-round playoff exit at the hands of Winnipeg.

All Capitals playoff games are broadcast on 106.7 The Fan (when not conflicting with Washington Nationals baseball) and on 99.1 FM WDCH, and on the 24-hour radio channel, Caps Radio 24/7, devoted specifically to the Capitals. He was just plainly better than Grubauer, and Holtby's performance in one round, while not flawless, is going to do a lot to make Capitals fans forget about a mediocre-at-best regular season.
