Capitals rout Hurricanes 6-0 to take 3-2 series lead

Through the first four games of this first-round series with the Hurricanes, the Capitals had taken more hits than they'd dished out, especially where it concerned Carolina's fleet-footed defensemen.

IT'S THE POWER PLAY, STUPID As bad as the Hurricanes were Saturday night, they had four dismal power plays - generating all of four shots on goal - and the game was still 1-0 and there for the taking. 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. He plays in Washington's top-six forward corps and on the team's top power-play unit. The Stars have also forgone their two-goalie system in this series, instead opting to have Ben Bishop start every game over Anton Khudobin thus far. "It's playoff hockey and yeah, we're facing elimination so we're going to be a desperate team and hopefully we play that way and we compete better than we did last game". But Ovechkin has a different theory of why Hamilton suddenly bailed, leaving a loose puck for Ovechkin to snag and then pass to the front of the net for a Brett Connolly goal. "This was a big part of our success previous year, that we needed to invest and force the opposition to play a hard game and eventually if you do it for long enough and you believe in the rest of your systems enough you will break them". "I thought they've been doing a great job all playoffs, too".

A year ago against Columbus in the first round, Washington overcame a 2-0 deficit to tie the series. Washington didn't allow a goal in Games 6 and 7 and advanced. Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 85 percent of their opponents power plays. Benn, Seguin and Radulov combined for more points in that 5-3 game than Nashville's top line of Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen and Arvidsson have all series. In fact, the five games this series, the home team is winning by an average of three goals.
