Klingberg's OT goal pushes Stars over Predators, into second round

Klingberg's OT goal pushes Stars over Predators, into second round

Braden Holtby isn't one for grand pronouncements, so when he was asked if a blowout of the Carolina Hurricanes sent a statement, he put the spotlight inside the Washington Capitals' locker room.

Foegele avoided supplemental discipline, but the Caps seemed to be committed to sending a message to Carolina in Game 5.

"To ourselves, I think", Holtby said, "to show that when we play that way we're going to be real tough to beat".

The Hurricanes are facing elimination after getting drubbed in Washington, 6-0, in Game 5. "Everyone bought in to everything, we worked together and it paid off". Nicklas Backstrom leads the team in goals with five lamplighters and leads the team in points with 8. It scored 10 goals in Games 5 and 6 to end the series. Aside from Foegele, who started the series on the third line, the five other players on the top two lines have combined for 11 points.

"It was a defenseless player that was quite a distance from the boards", Reirden said. They lead 3-2. They know they always have another chance, if necessary, on Wednesday for Game 7 at Capital One Arena back home. "You can tell that they want to win, and the rest of the team will follow". Defensively, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing three goals per game and are killing 68.4 percent of their opponents power plays. There's only so much the Hurricanes can do about the Capitals' high-powered power play, but there's nearly no route to victory that includes going 0-for with the man advantage with the game hanging in the balance.

Austin Watson scored a goal for Nashville in the first period. Philadelphia managed just four goals over the final three games of the series and had nothing left in Game 6. This season, Oshie put up 54 points in 69 games. "It's do or die now".

The Washington Capitals look for their first road win of the series to advance to the second round. The Hurricanes are a young team, but with grizzled veterans like Jordan Staal and Justin Williams who have won multiple Stanley Cups between them.

"It's a win", Holbty said.

Oshie's absence will make the Capitals' attempt to defend their Stanley Cup measurably harder.

The Hurricanes are 2-3 against the spread and 2-0 at on the road. F Micheal Ferland missed his second consecutive game with an upper-body injury.
