Capitals stave off elimination by beating Penguins

"I talked to him, told him we wanted to change it up". You are playing a desperate team and I think for us, we have to have that same desperation. "We're going to have to be the best team in the league if we're going to win this series".

NOTES: In addition to Crosby, Penguins RW Conor Sheary returned after being concussed Monday in a collision with teammate Patric Hornqvist.

Crunch offense explodes for eight goals to defeat Marlies and extend series lead - Raw Charge 14 different Crunch players registered a point in the contest and it was all started by two guys that are on an absolute tear, Cory Conacher and Byron Froese.

SUCCESS IN SMASHVILLE: A 3-1 victory in Game 6 Sunday over the St. Louis Blues put the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference final for the first time in their 18-year franchise history. Stick in hand, one of the zombies slashes through a graveyard of tattered headstones inscribed, in order, with the following: Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, Round 4.

"We had some opportunities, we had some high-quality chances, we didn't convert", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said.

While Fleury struggled for the first time against the Capitals, Vezina Trophy finalist Braden Holtby had his best game of the series, stopping 20 shots. Erik Karlsson had three assists. Trailing 2-1 after two periods, he made two hard saves on Pittsburgh's Nick Bonino. "We just focus on Game 6 right now".

The Capitals tied it up with a goal from Nicklas Backstrom early in the third period, giving them a mental boost.

"You have to have that belief". You're going to lose momentum sometimes. Up until that point, however, the game remained in question. "It was just, 'Keep pushing!" "You think I ever feel tight?" he said.

These are the moments in which he's most eager to play, and last year's underwhelming postseason robbed him of them.

A giveaway, one of four charged to Cole, just seconds into the third period created the Capitals' two-on-one rush that resulted in Backstrom's statement goal.

Boucher said his philosophy in 6-on-5 situations is simple: "Score". The defenseman added two shots on goal. As badly as the Penguins have been outshot in the series, they have scored first in four of the five games.

Lately, he's been putting on a show for his parents - who are here from Russian Federation - and the Capitals fans who have grown to love him for his dazzling puck-handling abilities, along with a little showmanship that occasionally reveals itself while flapping his arms like wings after big goals.

EXPERIENCED BLUESHIRTS: New York is facing elimination for the first time in these playoffs on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden, and coach Alain Vigneault hopes the collective experience serves his team well. The Capitals' dominance was again the case in Game 5, too. Holtby, pulled for the final period of Game 2 at home seven days earlier, stopped all 12 shots he faced in the final period and dove to smother a rebound after Sidney Crosby's backhander trickled out of the crease.

The Senators tied at 8:17 of the second on two fine feeds from Karlsson and MacArthur, the latter a fake shot sent cross-ice to Hoffman who buried the shot past Lundqvist. The Rangers' relentless pressure forced some sloppy puck play from the Sens, eventually leading to McDonagh's tying goal. "We want to be better than we were last game and have a lot of motivation coming into tonight".
