Penguins need to win or else Barry Trotz says he knew all day Capitals would win

None of their four power-play goals was scored by Alex Ovechkin. Forward Tom Wilson also sat for a third straight game while serving a suspension for an illegal hit on Pittsburgh's Zach Aston-Reese in Game 2.

Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom did not play in Game 6 against the Pittsburgh Penguins because of an upper body injury and is day-to-day.

Washington will hope the Swede can return for Game 7 or, in case of a Game 6 win, the first game of the Eastern Conference finals.

It is not known if he will be ready for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay later this week. "We had some looks but not enough, obviously". "Thank God this happened". Twice the Capitals rallied in the third period to stun Pittsburgh, including a four-goal outburst in Game 5. Defenseman Victor Hedman is a finalist for the Norris Trophy after he scored 17 goals with 46 assists in 77 games.

Ovechkin has 15 points in 12 games for the Capitals.

This wasn't simply a historic win for the Capitals in the Ovechkin Era, but an emotionally charged comeuppance against their archrivals.

"I don't want to lie, it tastes a little bit better (beating the Penguins)", Kuznetsov said. "But I never focus on the history. So our future remains bright and now we just have to focus on the third round".

The Capitals are well aware of their penchant for letting opportunity after opportunity slip away, frequently at the hands of Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. "He gave us a chance to win". "We battled right to the end, though". You can see everybody blocking shots, everybody play defensively.

Beagle had another theory: that little was expected from the perennial playoff runners-up, after their own general manager said they had their best shot of winning the Cup last postseason. Trotz said. "Your heart drops a little bit".

Ovechkin agreed that lowered expectations helped. There were high-fives. There were hugs. "We haven't tasted this in a long time, and that's a credit to the group of players that is in that dressing room". "We can enjoy it and use that energy as kind of a recharge for the halfway point and push full force into the next round because it's going to be a hard test". "And they did a good job of not allowing us to get inside. The goal is the Stanley Cup", Beagle said. The next couple days you take to come up with a game plan against them, do your research. You start to calm down.
