Artemi Panarin: Three points including OT victor in Game 1

Columbus general manager Jermo Kekalainen called Wennberg "doubtful" for Game 2 Sunday at Washington and considered it a "dangerous hit" by Wilson that the league deemed wasn't worthy of further punishment.

Carrier, Kempny and Wennberg are all day-to-day with "upper-body" injuries - the customarily vague description in the National Hockey League - with their statuses legitimately uncertain moving forward. "Trust me, it wasn't an easy decision".

A well-conditioned group under coach John Tortorella, they often outscore opponents in the first period, much like they did past year. Trotz rotated the pair down the stretch, but Grubauer started 10 of the final 17 games. Also troubling? Washington will be one of the worst possession teams in the East to qualify for the post-season. Panarin had three points in one game after recording just one in the Blackhawks' first-round loss via sweep last season. "It's not going to change any of my approach". That is, they have the more talent on offense and, in a playoff atmosphere where scoring chances can disappear, having gifted offensive players who can create more unsafe chances and then finish them is a big advantage. "It doesn't have anything to do with me".

"I'm just trying to finish my check there and I'm obviously not trying to take a penalty", Wilson said.

Vanek scored with Tom Wilson in the penalty box for charging Wennberg, a play the Capitals forward took responsibility for shifting the game in the Blue Jackets' direction.

But, there's still plenty of reasons, other than the obvious records mentioned above, to think the Caps can win this series.

In the playoffs, he is 3-10 with a 3.63 GAA and.887 save percentage.

"That's the team effort", Bobrovsky said.

"We have full confidence in his abilities", Columbus captain Nick Foligno to the team's website regarding Bobrovsky. "I was scared, I knew the visor cracked so I just wanted to know how my face was, but I was anxious about my eye first". "I thought there's clearly [Kempny's] numbers there [when Anderson hits him]".

The Capitals are trying to get past the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time in coach Barry Trotz's four seasons in Washington.

The Capitals, meanwhile, couldn't kill the penalties when they counted. Not only were the Caps up 2-0, but they also had a man advantage. Ovechkin has rebounded from his "worst" season ever - he still had 33 goals past year - and has been pumping in shots from his favorite spot above the circle once again. After Josh Anderson was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for a hit on defenseman Michal Kempny, the Capitals scored two goals in a span of 29 seconds to take a 2-0 lead.

On Thursday night, Artemi Panarin showed why the Columbus Blue Jackets traded for him in a blockbuster deal over the offseason. Cam Atkinson has 24 goals, including 11 in the final 11 games.

Wilson, 24, scored a career-high 14 goals and 35 points this season playing mostly on the top line with Alex Ovechkin.

Washington has the edge in special teams, with the league's seventh-ranked power play (22.5 percent success rate) and 15th-rated penalty kill (80.3 percent).
