National Hockey League will not suspend Capitals forward Tom Wilson for Game 2 hit

Evgeni Malkin’s potential return could benefit all four of the Penguins’ lines

Now it's time for class to begin to will out.

It was another fast start for the Capitals as they were able to jump all over a sloppy Penguins team in the first period.

The Capitals took a 4-1 victory on Sunday in Game Two to bring the series to a tie at 1-1.

Tom Wilson will not have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety, reports Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, meaning he will not be suspended for his hit to Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin in Game 2.

Asked why the games have become a coin flip regardless of venue, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan - whose team was outplayed at PPG Paints Arena by Philadelphia in Game 2 and Game 5 in the opening round - admits he can't really come up with a reason.

Part of the problem for the Penguins is a lack of scoring depth. It's a collision. I end up getting blown right out of the water, too.

Phil Kessel has five points, Derrick Brassard has three points and Conor Sheary has been held to two points. Meanwhile, Dumoulin didn't return to the game. "Everybody was in, and we get the result". "That's what we're trying to find, a little more balance". The winger does admit, though: "That's kind of where we've been scoring". That's the next step for us.

The only goal he allowed, a long distance shot from Penguins defenseman Kris Letang, was one that beat him through traffic that he probably did not get a clear view of.

Murray really didn't have a chance on the first goal in Game 2, though, just 1:26 in, after Evgeny Kuznetsov came down hard on Patric Hornqvist's stick, and the puck landed on the worst possible stick, at least from his standpoint. The video review didn't provide a definitive replay, so the Penguins didn't receive the tally, another break for Washington in a game of them. "We learned from that this time around".

"I don't know if I have answer for you that makes sense", Sullivan said Monday. "It's going to take that battle, that fight, every second and every minute".

"Even when we go up three, you've got to keep playing against this team because they can hurt you in a lot of different ways", Connolly said. History, though, has told us that there's likely only one way this is going to play out for Ovechkin and the Capitals: shaking hands with Crosby and his Penguins teammates before meeting one final time for locker clean-out day in Washington. I think we've got to be sharper and crisper with our puck movement.

One of the primary reasons the Penguins are two-time defending Stanley Cup champions has been their ability to get the best of the Capitals.

But what's often overlooked when revisiting past meetings between the two teams and the constant reminder that Ovechkin and his Capitals have had a great difficulty in ousting Crosby and his Penguins from the post-season is that very little of the blame for that could or should fall on Ovechkin.

Trotz pronounced his club healthy and ready to dress the same lineup for Game 3.

Washington had another 2-0 lead in Game 2, which is where Pittsburgh had rallied for a 3-2 win the previous contest.

The Jets and the Predators are an excellent matchup. The next two games should help determine the rest of the series.
