Galena Nuncio | 09 May, 2017, 06:41

The Washington Capitals have sent their second-round series back to Pittsburgh by forcing a Game 6.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Andre Burakovsky scored twice, Nicklas Backstrom got his sixth of the playoffs and the Washington Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2 on Monday night to force a Game 7 in their taut Eastern Conference semifinal. The Penguins still hold a 3-2 win in the series. For Washington to take game 6, they need someone in their bottom six forwards to produce offensively.

Crosby had an assist in his first game back and felt good, but the Penguins couldn't handle the Capitals' quick-strike offense in the third period that has made this series between the NHL's top two teams even more interesting.

Evgeny Kuznetsov and Alex Ovechkin scored 27 seconds apart in the third period as the Washington Capitals avoided elimination in the National Hockey League playoffs by beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 in Game 5 on Saturday.

"It's nice to draws on memories of that", Bonino said, "but at the same time, it's a new season, new team".

Braden Holtby stopped 20 shots for Washington, while Fleury made 28 saves. Phil Kessel scored a power-play goal for the Penguins in the second-period. As for the Penguins, they've only put 84 pucks on net at 5-on-5, which is far and away the fewest of any team in the second round, especially when you consider the Anaheim Ducks have fired almost twice as many in roughly 27 extra minutes of play. Washington had 40 shot attempts to Pittsburgh's 21, 18 shots on goal to Pittsburgh's 10. The Presidents' Trophy winners responded with a three-goal barrage over the final 20 minutes that extended their season. "I expect some good resolve and desperation in our game".

In 19 career games when facing elimination, Ovechkin has 10 goals and 10 assists.

Coach Mike Sullivan agreed almost word for word. He skated next to Olli Maatta during the morning skate and left the ice before defenseman Mark Streit, the other candidate to enter the lineup. "In the third period, we just said, 'Let's go at 'em.' There was no panic".

Wizards Win Game 4, Tie Series at 2-2
Boston could not close the gap in the final stanza, and the game ended with the loss. "Each game we're getting better and better". The playoffs are about adjustments, but if one team is clearly superior, it's hard to mask the truth in a best-of-seven series.

Momentum, though, started to shift back in New York's favor in the back half of the second. He had turned in a sparkling.937 save percentage against the Capitals, stopping 30 or more pucks as the Penguins rushed out to a 3-1 lead. "Played on our toes still but stayed patient and didn't try to do too much and we got rewarded".

“Thats just what we need in these tight games, ” said Andre Burakovsky, who scored the tying goal in the first period and had another good game after replacing Ovechkin as the top-line left winger.

Ovechkin could help keep the Capitals alive past Monday with another solid game.

Ovechkin, after his initial shot on the rush was blocked by defenseman Ron Hainsey, got the puck back and wristed it past Fleury for his fifth goal of the playoffs. "Our scouts kept saying, 'He's going to be there when we're picking, ' which was surprising to me".
