  • Pittsburgh Penguins Vs. Washington Capitals Game 6: Start Time, Live Stream, TV Info and More

At one point, Washington had eight unanswered goals on Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury until Pittsburgh scored two straight goals at the end of Game 6.

Crosby, 29, incurred a concussion in the first period of Game 3 of the Pens' Eastern Conference semifinal against the Washington Capitals after receiving a slash from Alex Ovechkin and a cross check to the head from Matt Niskanen in quick succession. Wednesday night is the chance for each team to confront its Game 7 demons as Washington hosts the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim hosts the Edmonton Oilers with spots in the conference finals at stake. The new policy allowed independent "Central League Spotters" monitoring a game via television from the league's Player Safety Room in NY to order a player be removed from a game if he showed "visible signs" of a concussion.

Although their offense was held in check for most of Game 6, the Penguins are still the top scoring team in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Washington's Verizon Center will be rocking on Wednesday with the chance to eliminate its hated rival. Those spotters are in the arena and in a central office in NY watching the video feed. "Just being a little bit better in the offensive zone". Crosby went into the boards after taking a nudge from Capitals defenseman John Carlson with 2:13 remaining in the first period. Washington went 2 for 4 on the power play.

While much has been made of the Capitals losing five of 12 series when leading 3-1, the Penguins have lost three series after leading 3-1, most recently in 2014 against the Rangers.

Monday night Crosby said he was evaluated by team doctors after the first period, but in a postgame press conference, Penguins Coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby was not evaluated for a concussion.

Horgan has said he would use all of the tools at his disposal but hasn't been very specific about what those are", she said. That would be a long-term win for them so that's one they may be willing to risk in supporting the NDP", said Harrison.


“Ive got to believe that (the momentum from Game 6 is) going to roll over, that theyre finally sick and exhausted of hearing that they havent gone to the third round and will break through, ” Boudreau said.

The biggest change you can see is the reuniting of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino, and Phil Kessel, otherwise known as the HBK line.

Come Tuesday morning, Crosby would be on the ice for practice, so it's safe to assume that he did not fail any type of concussion-testing that may or may not have happened, but given the murky waters of this situation thus far and how confusing the process has been, how can we even guess what's actually going on here? Though "HBK" was hardly the only group that had issues. He didn't miss a shift and stressed he felt fine. That's okay if you're ahead, but it is hard to come back from when trailing especially given Washington's overwhelming shot advantage. The problem is, at least in this series, the Penguins' offense has seemingly become dependent on those counters.

Backed up to the precipice against a rival that's tormented them for decades, the Capitals finally punched back. Now they're doing neither. Over the past two games, Fleury has allowed nine goals and has just an 84.4 save percentage. That sentence may be true of the first four games of the series, but it was not of the last two. "But you have to give Washington credit too".

"We're going to have to be better", Oshie said. This will be the fourth time they will meet in a Game 7. Remember their ability? Appearing Monday, for maybe the first time since the postseason began, was the best team in hockey over the course of 82 games.
