In Game 1, it was the same old, same old for a playoff matchup between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Capitals just can’t seem to find a way to beat the Penguins on the big stage, as Pittsburgh prevailed with a 3-2 road win.
The game got off to a slow start, with neither team scoring in the first period. But in the second period, Pittsburgh came out of the locker room like a bat out of hell. In a truly amazing display, Sidney Crosby scored two goals in 64 seconds to put the Penguins up 2-0.
Washington refused to go down without a fight, getting a goal from Alex Ovechkin late in the second period and a goal from Evgeny Kuznetsov with roughly 12 minutes left in the game to tie it up at 2-2. But just when the Caps had all the momentum in the world and their home crowd was going bonkers, Nick Bonino shattered their comeback dreams. He scored his second goal of the playoffs with 7:24 left in the third period, and Pittsburgh would hold on to win 3-2.
Now that we’ve reflected on Game 1, let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch the Caps try to even this series up.
