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 [...]
