Columbus Blue Jackets Playoff Experience Pales in Comparison to Caps

2018 NHL First-Round Playoff Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Washington Capitals Capitals Vs. Blue Jackets Live Stream: Watch NHL Playoffs Game 1 Online

As a result, the Caps will turn to Philipp Grubauer to start Game 1.

Wennberg suffered an undisclosed "upper-body" injury on the play in the third period, and he didn't return.

Washington left wing Jakub Vrana (13), center left, skates off the ice as Columbus left wing Artemi Panarin (9), center top, waits to celebrate his game winning goal with his teammates during Columbus Blue Jackets overtime defeat of the Washington Capitals 4-3 in game 1 of the National Hockey League playoffs in Washington DC on April 12, 2018. The Capitals scored twice on the five-minute power play to secure a 2-0 lead. "So, I just focus on one practice at a time and try to be a positive influence on the team and go from there". Bobrovsky bounced back from allowing a soft goal to Kuznetsov and stopped 10 of the other 11 shots he faced on the penalty kill. "That's a critical moment, [and] I've just got to be better". You know what, I've got to be better and maybe pass up on that hit. "We're trying to get that out of the game". It's playoffs. Trying to finish your checks, and unfortunately I took a penalty.

The Capitals didn't win their third straight Presidents' Trophy but they beat expectations.

The league will closely look at whether the head was the main point of contact, and as such, if the head contact was avoidable, and there would need to be video angles to support that. He was a big factor in Washington's Round 1 win against his hometown Maple Leafs past year as well, scoring three goals in the six-game series. Both came thanks to a power play the Capitals received after Josh Anderson of Columbus received a five-minute major for boarding - and also was ejected - with 2:37 left in the opening period.

She had won the World Championships in 2012 and is also a bronze medalist in the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in Delhi. Vinesh defeated Australia's Rupinder Kaur and Nigeria's Miesinnei Genesis to stay unbeaten in her weight division.

Vanek scored with Tom Wilson in the penalty box for charging Wennberg, a play the Capitals forward took responsibility for shifting the game in the Blue Jackets' direction.

"Quite honestly, although we give up two, I thought we killed penalties very well tonight", Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. Pierre-Luc Dubois also played a key role in game one with two assists, including an assist on the overtime victor. Whatever you do, protect the middle of the ice. Game 2 of the series takes place Saturday night in Boston.

David Backes and David Pastrnak scored second-period goals to break a 1-all tie and spark Boston to a rout of visiting Toronto in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal. He scored 14 goals with 21 assists this season, playing mostly on a top line beside captain Alex Ovechkin, so if he were suspended for any playoff games, it would be a significant loss for Washington, already down a game in the series. Ovechkin has rebounded from his "worst" season ever - he still had 33 goals past year - and has been pumping in shots from his favorite spot above the circle once again.

"He does a good job of educating himself", MacLellan said of Wilson. They Capitals could opt to go with the experienced Holtby in this one. So, he's spent a lot of time educating himself on what they're looking at and how they look at it and what's the certain things they look for. "And I think he's pretty confident about the team in front of him as well".
