Crosby scores twice, Bonino has victor as Pens beat Caps

"You don't get some for a while and then they come in bunches".

Ever since the Penguins and Capitals rivalry renewed with the arrival of Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby in 2005, the Penguins have seen three Stanley Cup Finals appearances and two Stanley Cup wins.

The second and third period showcased just exactly why the Penguins are the defending Stanley Cup champions.

"We played well enough to win this game, there's no question about it so it's really tough to lose this one", Lundqvist said. I think we weathered their storm there.

As public-address announcer Wes Johnson was just finishing announcing that goal, Holtby allowed a juicy rebound off Olli Maatta's point shot that Hornqvist corralled and fed to Crosby for his second of the night.

Philipp Grubauer replaced Holtby for the third period for his first appearance in the playoffs.

"We certainly would like to have better starts".

"We didn't have the luxury of choosing whether we wanted to play well or not on the road and with that comes some confidence", Yeo said. "Why would you think otherwise?" So now it's about breaking every single game down, focusing on the moment, living in the moment, not worrying about statistics or the standings in the series.

Complaining of no power plays in Game 1, the Capitals did nothing with their two first-period chances and gave up the first goal on the third early in the second.

"Maybe I'm going to put a checker on their checker because he's supposed to be their checker and he got four goals", Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Sunday on a conference call. "They're scrappy. It's a never-say-die attitude".

I know what the numbers are saying... "They've responded all year and they will respond again". But this is a resilient group that's determined to find ways to win.

Fleury has been the Penguins' best player. Though the Caps eventually tied the game at two, Nick Bonino got the game winning goal in the third period.

Can Pittsburgh's offense get any better? We're experienced, skilled, and we know how to play as a team. Malkin leads the playoffs with 13 points (3 goals, 10 assists).

Kessel's first goal was one of the best so far in the playoffs, largely because of some unreal work from Crosby, who pushed the puck through his skates to his stick, drawing three Washington defenders before finding Kessel, who blasted a wrist shot past the left shoulder of Capitals netminder Braden Holtby and into the back of the net.

That last part became kind of important. It needed its goaltender to be a difference maker. Most of the time, when a trend shows up in Game 1, it tends to loom over the series.

"That's how it goes sometimes", Crosby said. That's what I think is unbelievable.

The play started when Crosby blocked a Justin Williams shot and got the puck to Guentzel while down on the ice. "You don't expect anything less". The top overall playoff scoring leaders?

While Fleury is having a spectacular showing between the pipes, the netminder on the other side of the ice isn't. Grubauer allowed a goal on the second shot he faced, making it 4-1. "They're special athletes, both those guys, and they look for those big moments and they capitalize on those big moments". "That's where your goalie needs to come up with a save". But the unexpected happened, it's believed Murray may have suffered an injury in the last week of the season in a game against New Jersey. Washington D Karl Alzner remained out with an upper-body injury, though coach Barry Trotz said Alzner was close. "He's a game-changer for us, and so when he didn't change the game, I just looked to change the mojo there a little bit, that's all".

The Washington Capitals couldn't solve Marc-Andre Fleury, Jean-Gabriel Pageau had a game to remember, and being shorthanded wasn't much of a disadvantage. The Capitals had a 35-8 shot-attempt advantage through the opening 20 minutes.

"Sometimes depending on the situations it's nearly the road team that dictates how the game is played because just the guys they put on the ice in certain faceoffs, and then the other team has to respond to that", Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk said.

World Press Freedom Day
IFJ President Philippe Leruth said World Press Freedom Day highlights the raising issues with journalism and media. The higher a score is closer to 100, the less free a country's press is ranked.

"We can't get frustrated". Despite being hooked by Oshie, Cullen slid the puck through the five hole for a short-handed goal and a 1-0 Pittsburgh lead.
