National Hockey League playoffs: Dallas bounces Nashville with OT win in Game 6

National Hockey League playoffs: Dallas bounces Nashville with OT win in Game 6

They did not need quite as many this time and will not have to go back to Music City.

"If you're in that locker room, you see the culture now", Montgomery after the Stars beat Nashville 2-1 in overtime in Game 6 on Monday to finish off the first-round series. Radulov threw a cross-ice pass and found a wide-open Klingberg. The Carolina Hurricanes rallied for a 5-2 win to even the series.

The Washington Capitals celebrate after a goal by Carolina Hurricanes left wing Warren Foegele (13) in the opening minute of the first period of Game Four of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Washington Capitals and the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday, April 18, 2019.

The home team has won all six games this series and eight of the last nine games overall.

Ben Bishop, Vezina Trophy finalist, had a playoff career-high 47 saves for the Stars. You approach it as if you're going to play your best game in any situation. That's just the latest in a long line of upsets that we've seen already in round one. They tied it in the second period with a goal from Teuevo Teravainen. "He's been around. Obviously he knows how to play".

What the Capitals went through last season bonded them, but forward Brett Connolly wondered if how often they recounted tales from the playoffs and the aftermath of winning a franchise-first championship was too much for the players new to the team this year.

"It's tough. It's a tough pill to swallow", Predators defenseman P.K. Subban said.

The Hurricanes scored three third-period goals in bouncing back from a 6-0 rout in Game 5 and prolonging their first playoff appearance in a decade by one game at least.

Cross-ice play, quick shots: There weren't a lot of goals-against in the Tampa Bay series to dissect, so the trends of past seasons prevail. Williams finally got rewarded in the third period with a deflection goal that bounced through Holtby's 5-hole and proved to be the knockout punch. Evgeny Kuznetsov finished the game with three giveaways, and two of them came during that power play.

Braden Holtby stopped 31-of-35 in the loss for an.886 save percentage while Petr Mrazek stopped 23-of-25 for a.920 save percentage.

The Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes are going to a Game 7 after Carolina kept their season alive with a 5-2 win at home Monday night.

Oshie suffered the injury during Game 4 of their first-round series against the Carolina Hurricanes.

"We answered the bell", said Williams - known as "Mr. I don't think it's going to affect them going into the next game, but I hope it does". "He's playing hard, and it's on us to follow him now and play our best game".

The reigning Stanley Cup champions will have home-ice advantage in the decisive game, with the puck dropping at Capital One Arena shortly after 7:30 p.m. The puck bounced past Niskanen and Dmitry Orlov who came to assist and Staal reached his stick and knocked it beneath Holtby into the net to give Carolina its first lead of the game.

It's unclear if the Washington Capitals intentionally scrapped one of their chief traditions from last postseason, or if it just fell by the wayside on its own.

"I was just trying to track the puck, and honestly, try to get a piece of it", Staal said. "I was fortunate enough that it went in".

After that goal didn't count that's when the storm surge took over.

Top half of the net: Even with lateral plays and quick shots, it's still important to get shots at least over the leg pads, if not higher, against one of the fastest goalies in the National Hockey League.

Washington coach Todd Reirden said he felt the play was "worth a challenge" after consulting with his video review staffers.
