Snap Shots: Caps 5, Pens 2

The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Monday in game six of the second round National Hockey League playoffs at the PPG Paints Arena.

TURRIS TIME: Ottawa Senators Game 5 star Kyle Turris became the seventh player in National Hockey League history to score three overtime winners in his first 40 Stanley Cup playoff games. The Penguins have won each of the previous three.

NOTES: Pittsburgh D Trevor Daley, who left Game 5 in the third period, did not play because of a lower-body injury. "Two, I've never been past the second round".

PITTSBURGH, PA - MAY 1: Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby (70) makes a save on Pittsburgh Penguins Left Wing Chris Kunitz (14) in front during the second period of Game 3.

The loss stung the Pittsburgh locker room, but it will be a mere footnote in this series if the Penguins take care of business Monday at home in Game 6. Again, the Capitals are down 3-2. "Now we have to focus on the second game". "We're having fun now". Going into the third period down 2-1, the Caps came up with three unanswered goals, including two in under 30 seconds. The Capitals controlled play throughout.

Forwards Sidney Crosby and Conor Sheary of the Penguins returned five days after suffering concussions and Crosby had an assist.

Pittsburgh began Game 5 the same way, but after Carl Hagelin struck for his first goal since January 20, Sullivan replaced Kunitz with Hagelin to give Kessel another speedy player to skate with next to the skill of Malkin.

Google coughs up 306 million euros in Italy tax settlement
A Google spokesman said the deal "resolved without disputes investigations relating to the period between 2002 and 2015". Google worked out a similar deal with Britain previous year , agreeing to pay $185 million in back taxes.

After Sidney Crosby barreled into the boards toward the end of the first period Monday, he lay face down on the ice for a few moments before pushing himself up.

Kevin Shattenkirk's drop pass to Burakovsky led to Washington's first goal and extended the defenseman's point streak to three games. In beating the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist to put Ottawa up 3-2 in the series, Turris joined Devin Setoguchi, Martin St. Louis, Niclas Wallin, Danny Gare, Rene Robert and Mel Hill in the record books and passed Daniel Alfredsson for the most in franchise history. They loomed rather large over Game 6 last season, when the three players accounted for all of Pittsburgh's scoring in their 4-3 victory that eliminated the Capitals in the second round at home past year. The goals they scored were good goals.

The Penguins' main weapons broke through on the man-advantage but offered little resistance during even-strength play, a formula that didn't prove fruitful against the surging Capitals. Holtby getting hot is the last thing the Penguins, who have been for the most part out-possessed and out-played this series, want.

Holding two-goal leads in the postseason has been a tenuous proposition at best, with 13 times teams letting them away so far in the postseason. In Saturday's game, Washington had eight chances to Pittsburgh's five, and Fleury was tested 19 times from mid- and high-danger areas. Backstrom flipped a wrist shot by Fleury 16 seconds into the third to make it 3-0 and when John Carlson fired one past Fleury 11:17 into the third, the arena began emptying out.

"We had some opportunities, we had some high-quality chances, we didn't convert", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. "We're going to have to push them out".

"I would say just a little bit more zone time", he said.

Ever since Trotz rolled into Washington almost three years ago, he has tried to help his players - and, by extension, a fan base perpetually stricken with Game 7-induced gastroenteritis - forget.
