Blanketed by disappointment for the better part of two months, goaltender Michal Neuvirth was fraught by anxiety Friday afternoon, knowing that the opportunity he wanted for some time was finally approaching. He remained calm, helping the Washington Capitals take a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Rookie goaltender Philipp Grubauer may get his seventh start in 10 games today in Buffalo [5 p.m., CSN], but Adam Oates says Braden Holtby is still 'the man' for the Caps.
Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask stopped 134 of 136 shots by a team that averaged 4.27 goals a game in its first two playoff series.
With a victory in Game 4 at home Friday night, the 2011 Stanley Cup champions would earn a chance to play for a second title in three years.
The Penguins have just one goal in two losses on their home ice to the Boston Bruins. To play there again this season, they must win Wednesday or Friday and avoid what seemed so improbable just a few days ago — being swept in the best-of-seven conference finals.
Tuukka Rask kept Sidney Crosby and the rest of the NHL's top offense in check once again, stopping 26 shots.
For the first time this postseason, the Penguins find themselves with a bagel next to their name after the Boston Bruins pulled away for a 3-0 victory in Game 1 on Sunday night.
There's a dry erase board in the Pittsburgh Penguins' dressing room coach Dan Bylsma uses to remind his players about where they stand in their bid for a Stanley Cup.
Vokoun is eight wins away as Pittsburgh moves into the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Bruins. He's not riding the pine as Marc-Andre Fleury does the job; the 36-year-old is between the pipes living out the chance he never got with the Capitals.
The Penguins should feel confident — and a bit fortunate — to escape the relentless Islanders. New York dominated for long stretches in the series, using its speed to fluster Pittsburgh's talented but sometimes plodding roster of veterans.
Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma insists he still believes in Marc-Andre Fleury, that the issues for the reeling Penguins go far beyond the struggles of their Stanley Cup-winning goaltender.
Holtby was one of the biggest stories in the playoffs last year as he helped carry the Caps to within a victory of the Eastern Conference finals by putting up a 1.95 goals-against average and .935 save percentage. At 22 years old, he showed the poise of a veteran.
Holtby will start the regular-season finale against the Boston Bruins as he and the Caps get into playoff pattern.
For the first 10 minutes Thursday night, the Caps didn't register a shot. But in beating the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1, they rolled to their sixth straight victory.
The Caps went 12-15-1 without Laich, who injured his groin while playing for the Kloten Flyers in Switzerland during the NHL lockout.
"We gave up the first goal both games and, from there, everyone is trying to do it on their own," Vokoun said, "it's just not going to work."
Tomas Vokoun said during his time as a Washington Capitals goaltender that hockey is sometimes a simple game: You can't win if you don't score goals.
