NHL Burakovsky at the double as Caps down Penguins to tie series

Game 7 will take place back in Washington on Wednesday night.

Momentum might not be on Pittsburgh's side in Game 7, but history is. The Predators will face either the Anaheim Ducks or Edmonton Oilers for the right to come out of the West. In the third period, Ovechkin will win it for the Capitals.

The Pittsburgh Penguins spent the better part of five games exploiting the few chances the Washington Capitals gave them, focusing on generating quality scoring chances while the Presidents' Trophy winners seemed more intent on quantity.

Despite his previous concussion, and despite looking dazed after the fall, the NHL's concussion "spotters" - people in NY who watch all games and have the authority to remove a player from action to be evaluated for a concussion - did not remove Crosby from the game. "I believe in this group and we're going to rely on our experience".

The Capitals have three remaining; Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Jay Beagle. In his career, he is 7-0 in Game 7s, with seven goals and seven assists. "That should serve us well (Wednesday)", Sullivan said. The Penguins are beat up, they're exhausted (they have played more games in the last 365 days than any other team still playing in the playoffs) and as cliché as it is, it's awfully hard to repeat as Stanley Cup Champs. "Now it boils down to one".

But Washington was undoubtedly playing the biggest period of the Alex Ovechkin era in Game 5. "We know that's not going to be the exact same story. If we don't hold serve, then it's not what we're looking for". "Now we have to focus on the second game, not think about the Game 7". Trotz doesnt think itll have anything to do with history.

China wins praise for Silk Road but concerns persist
Pakistan moved closer towards China while hailing the controversial China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Finance ministers from 27 countries approved a set of financing principles for the Belt and Road .

At the other end of the ice, the Capitals limited the Pens to just three shots on net in the first 20 minutes, nine in the first 40 minutes and 18 on the night. If he's good but they're bad at allowing high danger chances and keeping the puck out of the defensive zone for long stretches, that's just not a way to win against a strong team. I thought he might be dead after this one. Marc-Andre Fleury finished with 21 saves and received little help in front of him.

The Caps played extremely well in all areas of the game in Monday's Game 6 victory. "I think they're the better team right now, so hopefully they play that way". Defenseman Trevor Daley didn't play Game 6.

What: The Washington Capitals plays host to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Their last Game 7 victory at home came in the first round in 2009 with Boudreau behind the bench when Sergei Fedorov scored the victor to knock off the Rangers. One could argue the Capitals have outplayed the Penguins in this series anyway and it's finally starting to show in the scoreboard.

Crosby crashed headfirst into the boards in the first period of Monday night's Game 6 loss to the Capitals. Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan stands behind, from left, Nick Bonino, Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz during the third period of Game 6 of Pittsburgh and Washington's Stanley Cup Playoffs Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Crosby continues to play but isn't pleased that he keeps getting questioned.

"As far as being checked by a doctor, yes, absolutely - any guy that goes into the boards like that, the first thing is trainer and then doctor's [evaluation]", Crosby said. "We can sit here and I can explain for 10 minutes what concussion protocol is and all that stuff but I don't really want to do it".
