Washington Whips Penguins 4-2 in Game Five

It was a night of surprises. After missing Game Four with a concussion, captain Sidney Crosby made a triumphal return to the Penguins’ lineup, by all appearances fit as a fiddle and rarin’ to go. On the flip side, slumping Capitals counterpart Alex Ovechkin was unceremoniously dropped to the third line by his coach, Barry Trotz. The end resul [...]

Penguins Plunder Capitals in Game 2

To borrow from the theme song to the old tearjerker “Love Story,” where do I begin? I have so many impressions of the Penguins’ stunning 6-2 conquest of Washington at the Verizon Center last night…not all of them good. Guess I’ll start at the beginning.

With typical modesty, t [...]

Capitals Thump Penguins 3-1

It ain’t over till it’s over. Whether the Washington Capitals used that time-honored Yogi Berra-ism as motivation to claw back from the brink in their second-round series with the Penguins is anybody’s guess.
