Capitals vs. Hurricanes Game 5

Capitals vs. Hurricanes Game 5

After coming into Game 3 with a 2-0 series lead, they now see the series tied after two straight losses to the Carolina Hurricanes on the road.

Ovechkin said after Game 3 that he hoped Svechnikov was OK. On special teams. Ovechkin now has 23 career power play goals, tying Joe Nieuwendyk and Brian Bellows for the 24th most PPGs in the playoffs.

The Washington Capitals will be hard-pressed to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions with TJ Oshie now sidelined for the foreseeable future.

Foegele was given a boarding minor, but Carolina killed off the penalty and survived a Capitals flurry after the penalty expired, with Petr Mrazek (30 saves) again making standout stops to preserve the lead. "Everyone wants more opportunity, so when you get it, take advantage of it".

The Hurricanes didn't dominate possession the way they did in their first home playoff game in almost a decade, but the same heroes came through to set PNC Arena ablaze. With the series tied at 2-2 headed back to our nation's capital, will the Capitals be able to regroup and keep the streak of the home team winning four in a row intact?

Caps coach Todd Reirden was furious after the game and said Oshie would be out for "quite some time".

Dingoes are believed to be related to a domestic dog brought in from Indonesia some 3,000 to 4,000 years ago, the BBC reported. In January, a six-year-old boy was taken to hospital after being bitten by a dingo when he ran up a sand dune.


Brind'Amour, despite seeing his team win the last two games, thinks the Hurricanes need to be better, too.

The latest to go down was Jordan Martinook, who appeared to sustain a right knee injury after his heel slammed into the boards while attempting a first-period hit on Dmitry Orlov in the offensive zone. He returned to the ice wearing a cage and has practiced for the last two days, but missed Game 4 because of the injury and remains under concussion protocol.

But Teravainen and Foegele were at full strength - and the Hurricanes needed them.

Carolina is receiving outstanding production from Foegele (5 points), Jaccob Slavin (5) and Dougie Hamilton (4). "I saw Nino get the puck, and I was a little open, so I just took a couple steps and I had a pretty good chance".

The Carolina Hurricanes desperately needed to tighten up the neutral zone, limit the Capitals offensive time, and improve their special teams. "I just closed my eyes and put it in".

"He's a prototypical playoff guy", Williams said of Foegele. "I feel like from the outside, a lot of people don't believe us".
