Capitals Vs. Blue Jackets Live Stream: Watch NHL Playoffs Game 1 Online

Washington committed three penalties in the third period alone, leading to two goals that tied the game on each occasion. The Blue Jackets ranked 25th on the power play this season - and 30th on the road. "That tonight was one of those games where we talked to each other, we pumped each other up, we felt good and it never felt like we were going to lose this one". 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.

And another interesting nugget: the Jackets are now 3-1 in overtime of playoff games, but 1-11 in games that end in regulation. That cost us the game. "That's a critical moment".

"I've had pretty good trust in Chandler since he came up", said head coach Barry Trotz. Maybe pass up on that hit. We've got the lead there so maybe a big hit is not needed.

About five minutes into the second period, Columbus was granted a lifeline. "I think players enjoy that". We're just doing it too often.

Norris Trophy-contending defenseman Seth Jones made things happen to send the game to overtime in the building where father Popeye spent two of his 11 National Basketball Association seasons.

With the man-advantage, Blue Jackets forward Thomas Vanek created flawless positioning in front of the net to sneak one past Capitals goaltender Philipp Grubauer.

Killorn's shot over the glove of goalie Kevin Kincaid's glove restored a two-goal lead before Kucherov, who led the Lightning with 100 points this season, ensured there would be no comeback.

But that didn't seem to be a problem for the road team, as Columbus cut the lead Washington had and turned it into a Game 1 win on the road.

"I looked at it, and I'm going to let the league look at it", he said. "I thought he was fine". And yet, this series is expected to be fairly even, and there's things about this match-up that should concern the Caps, like 5-on-5 play and Jackets star Artemi Panarin.

Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 27 shots for Columbus.

This is the first playoff meeting between the teams, but in his career versus Washington, Bobrovsky is 7-10-4 with a 3.02 GAA and.900 save percentage. "You just have to stay focused and play your game no matter what".

Doughty, a Norris Trophy contender and Los Angeles' top defender, was suspended for Friday night's Game 2 against Vegas for what the league called an avoidable hit to Carrier's head. Foligno missed a few shifts after he said Jerabek's shot cracked his visor into his face. During the regular season, his line was one of the most productive. Adding Ian Cole at the deadline gave an already deep blueline a veteran with Stanley Cup rings, a nice addition to a roster that's otherwise bereft of playoff success. Washington went to overtime for the seventh time in its past 14 playoff games.
