Did Sidney Crosby spit at the Capitals in Game 3?

Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz said it was "a hard hockey hit", and grew testy when he was asked a follow-up question about Wilson during the postgame press conference. Using the three prior series, Ovechkin holds the edge in Corsi for percentage (56 percent to 50 percent), shots for percentage (54 percent to 52 percent), scoring chances for percentage (55 percent to 53 percent) and high-danger scoring chances for percentage (55 percent to 49 percent).

The Caps may have gotten a break during that crucial third period. Yes, Sidney Crosby is known to play by his own set of rules.

Perhaps the whole puck made it past the line, and that would have cut the Pens deficit to one goal.

Entering the current series, there had been 20 playoff games between Pittsburgh and Washington in the post-lockout era, with Ovechkin suiting up in each and every one and Crosby missing one outing during last season's series.

Nicklas Backstrom had three assists in the game, including the game-winner, but it was Ovechkin who finished things off with one of the biggest goals of his career. "I know our team historically has been very good at home and I believe we will continue to do that".

"They all got together and they said, 'You know what, we've got a good, clean check here, '" National Hockey League on-site supervisor Paul Devorski said through a pool reporter. We have to earn it.

Game 4 is scheduled for Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Ryan Shazier's 2018 Salary Converted to Bonus
What wasn't expected was the team doing something that would benefit Shazier without risking further injury in the future. In an anticipated move, the Steelers placed Shazier on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list on Wednesday.

Crosby got plenty of work done Wednesday morning, but most other players took the day off to decompress and rest.

The result gave the Jets a 2-1 series lead in a matchup of the NHL's top two regular-season teams.

During the Capitals' 4-1 win in Game 2 on Sunday, Wilson knocked Penguins defenceman Brian Dumoulin out of the game with a controversial second-period hit. Fiala quickly whipped his shot by Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck, and the Preds poured over the bench to congratulate themselves on the 5-4 triumph. The Predators' triumph helped them win the Presidents Trophy and guarantee home ice through the playoffs. He scored three goals, including two in a 4-2 Game 4 victory in Toronto, as Washington won the first-round series in six games.

While both sides had opportunities to win in the overtime periods, the Predators carried much of the action and dictated the pace in the extra time.

Tanev tied it at 3, putting the puck past Pekka Rinne's right skate at 5:11 of the third.

"It's huge, huge goal", Ovechkin said. "Obviously, we'll take this". "Sometimes when teams go on the road, they have tendency to simplify their game".
