Milbury, Jones pick Capitals to beat Penguins in Game 7

Milbury, Jones pick Capitals to beat Penguins in Game 7

Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury allowed five goals against the Capitals Monday night.

Washington Capitals' T.J. Oshie (77) celebrates his goal with Alex Ovechkin in the first period of Game 6 in an NHL Stanley Cup Eastern Conference semifinal hockey game against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Pittsburgh, Monday, May 8, 2017.

There was a concussion spotter at Monday night's second-round playoff game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. The decisive Game 7 will be Wednesday night in Washington (7:30 ET, NBCSN).

EXPERIENCED BLUESHIRTS: New York is facing elimination for the first time in these playoffs on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden, and coach Alain Vigneault hopes the collective experience serves his team well.

"We haven't had success so far this series playing fast and that's something we have to get back to", said Patric Hornqvist. Let's face it, those shots are more likely to get blocked before they ever reach Fleury than they are to get on net. "You have to find ways to get better, play better and move on".

Europol, the EU's law enforcement agency, has called the cyber attack the "largest ransomware attack observed in history". Security minister Ben Wallace said that the NHS had followed "pretty good procedures" in dealing with the attack.

The Capitals appeared on the verge of another exit at the hands of the Penguins going into the third period of Game 5. The play occurred with 2:14 to go in the first period.

While much has been made of the Capitals losing five of 12 series when leading 3-1, the Penguins have lost three series after leading 3-1, most recently in 2014 against the Rangers.

Pittsburgh registered just one shot in the first 17 minutes of Game 6, that one a 136-foot knuckler on a clear by defenseman Brian Dumoulin that just happened to make its way to Washington goaltender Braden Holtby.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan offered no excuses after the defending champions fluffed another chance to wrap up the series.

“Ive got to believe that (the momentum from Game 6 is) going to roll over, that theyre finally sick and exhausted of hearing that they havent gone to the third round and will break through, ” Boudreau said.

She said Britain was working with worldwide partners in the global manhunt to find the creators of the cyber attack . Experts expressed concern that there would be a resurgence in attacks when people return to work.

The biggest change you can see is the reuniting of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino, and Phil Kessel, otherwise known as the HBK line.

The day after failing to close out the Eastern Conference semifinal for the second time, the Pittsburgh Penguins went through an intense, hour-long practice at their facility.

"I would say just a little bit more zone time", he said. It would in effect tell the huge pink elephant in the room no one wants to acknowledge to go away and never come back. Now, it certainly seems like Washington has the advantage, especially since it has arguably outplayed the Penguins for most of the series. What they were doing wasn't working. Just as troubling as the lack of pucks they've sent Holtby's way over the last two games is where those pucks have come from. Their last Game 7 victory at home came in the first round in 2009 with Boudreau behind the bench when Sergei Fedorov scored the victor to knock off the Rangers. "I think it just knocked the wind out of me but felt fine". "But you have to give Washington credit too".

Boudreau, who is 1-7 in his National Hockey League coaching career in Game 7 after success in that spot in the minors, thinks goaltending will be the difference.

For a Game 7 of this magnitude, there's no telling what product each team will put on the ice. Despite the blowout in Game 6, they're still right there.
