Cardiac Cane: Carolina Hurricanes: Force Game 7 against the Capitals
Don't call it a comeback.
The lyrics to LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" perfectly fits this team and what they had accomplished last night at PNC Arena against their old but new arch-nemesis, the Washington Capitals.
It's been a while since we could truly call another team our arch-nemesis. A while since we have developed such rich storylines filled with such emotions and passion. That is what we have missed over the course of the last decade by missing out on the postseason. Say what you will about the current playoff format, but this is exactly what it is supposed to create.
Washington Times: Three factors that will decide Capitals-Hurricanes Game 7
Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom will suit up for their 12th career Game 7 Wednesday as the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes try to push one another off the edge of elimination.
Carolina can counter the Capitals with one of their own former players, Justin Williams, who holds the NHL record for most points recorded in Game 7s with 14 (seven goals, seven assists).
But playoff experience has not dictated how this series has gone, considering the Hurricanes -- who hadn't made the playoffs in 10 years -- are keeping up with the defending Stanley Cup champions.
Fansided: Washington Capitals Fail to Close Out Carolina Hurricanes, Series will Take Seven
They followed that up by going up 2-1 in Game 6 in the first period but the Washington Capitals were unable to hang on. The Carolina Hurricanes rallied for a 5-2 win to even the series. Now a best of seven has went from a best of three to a best of one.
The Capitals got on the board early with a Brett Connolly goal at 5:06. It was a puck sequence around the net from Andre Burakovsky to Lars Eller, to Connolly from behind the goal with a snipe for the finish.
Fansided: Carolina Hurricanes: 3 Keys to Road Victory in Game 5 in Washington
In the first two games at Capital One Arena, the Carolina Hurricanes have seen the misfortune of bad officiating and saw close games slip away from them. They saw themselves in the series down 0-2 quickly and now it's tied. How?
The Carolina Hurricanes desperately needed to tighten up the neutral zone, limit the Capitals offensive time, and improve their special teams. They've done just that, in Game 3, they shutout the Washington Capitals 5-0 and the highlight of appreciation goes to only allowing Washington to have one shot on goal in the 2nd period. They killed all four penalties they took, they dominated in hits 52-34, and scored twice on the power-play.
Japers' Rink: Capitals @ Hurricanes Game 6 Recap: Carolina Staves Off Elimination, Forces Game Seven In D.C.
The Capitals were unable to finish off the Hurricanes on the road, and the trend of the home team winning continued as Carolina force a series-deciding game seven in a 5-2 victory.
Ten more notes on the game:
1. With puck possession hard to come by in the opening moments of the contest, an undisputed chippiness that we've seen as a function of injuries to both sides came to a head with big hits, taunting, and post-whistle extracurricular activities a-plenty. The Capitals though were able to keep their heads and cash in on a mistake by Sebastian Aho to go puck-chasing below the goal line, Andre Burakovsky and Lars Eller connected with Brett Connolly caught Petr Mrazek leaning the wrong way and roofed the puck in the top shelf to give Washington the all-important first goal of the contest.
Canes Country: Recap: Hurricanes down Capitals 5-2, Avoid Elimination
RALEIGH -- The Canes faced eliminated in front of nearly 19,000 in PNC Arena tonight. Outstanding leadership from the Canes' top players ensured that that wouldn't hold in Game 6, a 5-2 victory that sends the series back to Washington for Game 7 on Wednesday.
The Canes had a bit of a slow start early in the first. A rare lapse in judgement from Sebastian Aho early on in the first period allowed for Nick Dowd to receive a pass in front of the net unhindered, and he made easy work of Mrazek as he shelved a puck to the glove side to give the Caps a 1-0 lead.
