Ovechkin Finished Playoffs With Lower-Body Injury

"We need to get more zone time", Crosby said.

"I don't think we gave ourselves a chance to win", Capitals goalie Braden Holtby said, "and we'll have to live with that".

"We've earned the right to be there and compete against these guys", said winger Alex Burrows.

"We're very proud of the work that we've done but we've got lots left", Ottawa defenseman Dion Phaneuf said.

Nashville, which ousted the Ducks in the opening round past year, were the lowest-seeded West playoff team but have won six of seven playoff games when scoring first. The NHL did this because players are obstinate and stubborn and singularly focused on playing the game.

The series will also a feature a few close friends going head-to-head as Phaneuf and MacArthur take on former Toronto teammate Phil Kessel.

The Ducks have allowed 13 power-play goals, more than any other National Hockey League playoff team, and have gone only 5-for-36 on their extra-man chances, third-worst of all 16 playoff teams. Only defensemen Kris Letang (neck, out for season) and Trevor Daley (lower body, questionable) are on the injury report going into the opener. Now, the Caps are left to decide whether they are ready to commit to their new defenseman as they embark on what could be an offseason of drastic changes, one of which might also include T.J. Oshie.

According to oddsmakers at, the Pittsburgh Penguins are now the favorite with +175 odds. Kadri got a two-minute tripping penalty for the play, though Caps coach Barry Trotz said he thought it should have been a major penalty. "We just got to go win one game in Washington". It took until 8:49 of the second period for Pittsburgh to silence the crowd as a failed clear by Matt Niskanen got the puck from Sidney Crosby to Jake Guentzel to Rust for his fifth goal of the playoffs.

The Capitals actually managed to come back from being 1-3 down, but when it mattered, while the Penguins made some incredible improvisations to their injured rotations and lines, the Capitals looked like a team that lacks the ability, intelligence and mental fortitude to do what it takes, and show they can be great in anything other than the regular season.

The Washington Capitals' history of playoff disappointments began even before they ever reached the postseason.
