Braden Holtby: In goal for Game 2

Braden Holtby: In goal for Game 2

Vrana's goal in the first period had to withstand a goaltender interference review after the Penguins challenged it due to Brett Connolly taking a whack at Murray's pad.

Alex Ovechkin scored his seventh goal of the playoffs, Braden Holtby made 32 saves and the Washington Capitals built a lead and this time held on to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 in Game 2 on Sunday to even the second-round series. There was the interference challenge that Sullivan requested on Vrana's goal, upheld only because Connolly whacked Murray's pads with barely enough time to spare before the puck was sacked.

Goaltending has been the face of the Washington-Pittsburgh series so far and with the teams matched at 1-1, that's a trend likely to continue.

Tom Wilson with a casual shoulder to Brian Dumoulin's skull. And next to Crosby was Patric Hornqvist, the central character in the most controversial play of the day.

We're a little more than a period into Game 2 of the Capitals-Penguins series. "Therefore, the Referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Pittsburgh".

"They said the puck wasn't in the net", Hornqvist said. "But the one I saw it had to be a goal". "But what can you do?"

Khan emphasised that the deal was not a foregone conclusion but talked confidently about his plans for the national stadium. The stadium, which is now also used as Tottenham's temporary home, was finished in 2007 at a cost of nearly £800 million.


The Penguins have proven they can survive when one of their offensive stars sustains an injury, as proven by Kris Letang's absence last season and their ability to win two of their last three postseason games without Evgeni Malkin. "When you blow it up, you can see the white". It's behind the post.

"My view was that it's 100% a goal", Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. "So we respectfully disagree with the league and their ruling". A portion of the goal line right next to the puck is obscured by the snow from the ice. It's not possible for it to touch the line. In both game one and game two, the Capitals raced out to early leads and played a defensive-style game that rendered the Penguins unable to get quality shots on net.

Not that these Penguins are the types to pout, two-time defending champions and all. The Caps captain came out like a man on a mission, scoring just 1:26 into the first period.

The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Tuesday in game three of the NHL Eastern Conference Second Round Playoffs at the PPG Paints Arena.

Subban tied it with a slap shot for Nashville's first power-play goal of the series at 5:04 of the second. His sidekick, Jake Guentzel, who entered the night with seven goals in seven postseason games, was quiet and had just two shots. The officials retreated to the penalty box and conducted a review.

"I was pretty disappointed", Murray said. "As a goalie, just want to be able to do your job", Murray said.
