Capitals forward Tom Wilson suspended 3 games

Ovechkin's game-winning goal delivered the Capitals a 4-3 win Tuesday night at PPG Paints Arena in a game marked by growing animosity between the two rivals. Backstrom had three assists, including the helper on Ovechkin's victor.

As Ovechkin skated over to the glass to celebrate his league-leading eighth playoff goal, Penguins fans gave one of the greatest players of all-time a classless salute.

Chandler Stephenson scored from the left face-off circle on a one-timer at 11 minutes, 4 seconds of the second period to make it 2-2.

Sidney Crosby gave the Penguins a 3-2 lead at 16:27 of the second period, and Niskanen tied it 3-3 when his slap shot bounced off Murray's glove and that set the stage for Ovechkin.

The year was 1994, a couple months after Tom Wilson left the womb. Wilson has been suspended twice in his career, first in 2017 for a late hit in the preseason resulting in a two-game preseason ban, and again in that same preseason, drawing a four-game suspension to open the 2017-18 campaign for a boarding penalty. "I thought we played really well in a lot of areas".

Sullivan and the coaching staff met with Kessel before Game 3 in an attempt to provide insight into what Kessel could do to get it going.

The Penguins then took the lead back when Guentzel made a spectacular move to avoid Dmitry Orlov by the left circle and sent a cross-ice pass that Crosby buried with 3:33 left in that wild second period.

The NHL's Department of Player safety didn't ask Wilson to explain himself during a hearing and Dumoulin was back in the lineup to start Game 3.

Of course, the Capitals lost that series.

The other thing the Penguins try not to do?

The champions have proven to be an impossible out during their current reign.

"After the whistle we walked away", Letang said. "Boy, sometimes the puck takes a different bounce and the score can be completely different".

"I think today for some reason it's frowned upon to hit people in hockey", Holtby said.

Carl Hagelin was also on the ice, but he wore a full visor and a non-contact jersey. Both teams went 1 for 4 on the power play.

Through Wednesday, Carlson was tied for the lead among defensemen in postseason scoring with 10 points in nine games.
