Both teams are coming off ending their respective first round series in six games, so each team is dealing with the same amount of rest.
The Washington Capitals rallied from down four goals to defeat the Vancouver Canucks 6-5 in the shootout at Rogers Arena on Friday.The Canucks have a had a few days off to be over-analyzed to death. The Caps are playing the second night of a back-to-back games. The Caps lost to the Oilers last night in O/T so the Canucks might want to open the game with some speed to try and tire out the Caps by the third. Of course that might play into the Caps favor as they are a fast-skilled team that shoot from anywhere and often.
Defenseman Michal Kempny scored twice for Washington in 2:44 in the third period to tie the game, and Nicklas Backstrom scored the deciding goal in the third round of the tiebreaker.”I feel like these types of moments, they build the team spirit and build the team together, and that’s huge for us,” said Evgeny Kuznetsov, who scored his second goal of the night with 0.3 seconds left in the second period to get the Capitals within 5-2.
“We stick with each other, we stick to the game plan even though the game never went well, we give up some bad goals, but we stick with our plan, and we get the results.”Lars Eller had a goal and an assist, and Ilya Samsonov made 29 saves for the Capitals (8-2-3), who rebounded from blowing a two-goal lead in the third period and losing 4-3 in overtime to the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday. They are 5-0-1 in their past six.
Washington’s John Carlson (five goals, 13 assists) and Alex Ovechkin (eight goals, five assists) each had his point streak end at nine games.”[Ovechkin and Carlson] have carried us for a long time,” coach Todd Reirden said. “But what happens in these back-to-backs is you need to have other guys step up.”Tim Schaller scored two goals, and Jacob Markstrom made 24 saves for the Canucks (6-3-1), who lost for the second time in eight games.
“That’s not good enough,” captain Bo Horvat said. “Going in with a four-goal lead, 21 minutes left, we’ve got to be able to hold those. We’ve got to be a lot better than that in the third. … At times, I think guys — including myself — were trying to make plays out of nothing and not getting the pucks in deep and simplifying our game. And I think that’s what turned on us.”
Eller set up Kuznetsov’s goal late in the second and scored shorthanded at 1:57 of the third to make it 5-3.”A little more life, a little more hope in the locker room at the end and built that up going into the third period,” Eller said of Kuznetsov’s second goal. “Get one late, get one early, and now it’s a game.”
Kempny scored on point shots through traffic that made it 5-4 at 4:57 and tied it 5-5 at 7:41.”It didn’t go as we expected, but I love that we didn’t give up,” he said. “Huge comeback win for us.”
Kuznetsov scored alone in tight at 3:18 of the first period to put the Capitals ahead 1-0, but Brock Boeser tied it 1-1 on the power play off a pass from Quinn Hughes at 5:33.Schaller scored on a shorthanded rush at 7:29 to put the Canucks ahead 2-1.
Elias Pettersson made it 3-1 with a wrist shot from inside the right face-off circle at 5:59 of the second, and Schaller batted a loose puck out of the air to make it 4-1 at 13:39.Schaller has three goals, matching his total in 47 games last season.”I still think I have a lot more to give,” he said. “But it’s nice to see hard work paying off, and I’m going to keep working hard and hopefully good things keep happening.”Jake Virtanen put the Canucks ahead 5-1 with a quick shot from the slot at 14:54.
Carlson leads the NHL with 21 points (five goals, 16 assists) in 13 games. With one game left this month, he is four points from tying the NHL record for most points by a defenseman in October, set by Al MacInnis with the Calgary Flames in 1990.It was more a market correction than a collapse, but it had the same embarrassing effect on the Vancouver Canucks.
The team had a four-goal lead with 20 minutes and one second remaining Friday, and lost 6-5 in a shootout against the Washington Capitals, whose comeback consisted of four goals on six shots over eight minutes.
The Canucks know a collapse when they see it. Vancouver played the entire third period in its own zone last Sunday against the New York Rangers, who riddled the Canucks with 17 shots in the final 20 minutes, but still lost 3-2.On Tuesday, the Canucks ventilated the Detroit Red Wings with five third-period goals to win 5-2.
