Matt Calvert lifts Blue Jackets past Capitals in OT

Matt Calvert lifts Blue Jackets past Capitals in OT

"You're right now in a hard position, but it's going to be fun when we bounce back, and we're going to tie the series and come back here and play Game 5 at home", Ovechkin told reporters ahead of Tuesday's Game 3.

After feasting on the power play in the first two games, the Blue Jackets failed to score on four tries with a man advantage.

Golden Knights 1, Kings 0: Brayden McNabb scored against his former team in the second period, lifting Vegas to a victory over Los Angeles that made the Golden Knights the first expansion team in National Hockey League history to sweep its first playoff series.

Tom Wilson and John Carlson also scored, and Braden Holtby stopped 33 shots for the Capitals, who were in danger of falling into a almost insurmountable hole had they let the game slip away.

Then, Panarin sailed a pass to center Pierre Luc-Dubois on the right side of the ice, and he rifled a wrist shot out of the reach of Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and into the back of the next for the equalizer with 11:18 to play in the second period.

This first-round series is also playing out like last year's against the Toronto Maple Leafs, when every game was resolved by one goal and five out of six went to overtime. Atkinson leads in goals with 2.0 while Panarin tops in assists with 4. The Blue Jackets got a break two minutes later when a goal by Connolly was waved off after a video replay showed he was offside bringing the puck down the ice.

Crosby, who has 93 points in 63 career regular-season games against Philly, shut up the orange-and-black die-hards with a wraparound goal off a turnover midway through the first.

"It's a hell of a series", Columbus coach John Tortorella said.

The Capitals have outshot the Blue Jackets 133-92 through the first three games. Vrana was a healthy scratch for that game.

WILD 6, JETS 2: In St. Paul, Minn.Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise scored power-play goals in the first period for the spark Minnesota was missing on the road, and the Wild used a four-goal second to roar back against Winnipeg the Western Conference series. (I recommend this technique for the inevitable overtime in Game 4.) Things were apparently a little less tense in the Capitals' locker room.
