Maybe it was in.

The call on the ice was upheld and the Capitals had their two-goal lead.

It was a tough outing Sunday afternoon for Sexsmith's Carter Rowney and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Rowney saw limited actions for the Penguins in the loss as they were playing catch up for most of the game. "We're going to try to play the game that gives us the best chance to win". "We earned our breaks", Connolly said. "He took me under his wing". Losing twice on home ice to Columbus is one thing. His first, in Game 3 of the first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets April 17 in Columbus, was rather shortlived. "I don't think we played our best game. They got some bounces and we just had to make sure that didn't happen again". Malkin had three goals and two assists in the first five games of the first round series against the Flyers, but missed Game 6.

The NHL announced Monday morning that Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson will not have a Department of Player Safety hearing about a hit he delivered to Pittsburgh Penguins forward Brian Dumoulin in the teams' Game 2 Sunday.

Washington Coach Barry Trotz urged Wilson to pattern his game after his former Capitals teammate Joel Ward, who now plays for the San Jose Sharks.

Sidney Crosby's Penguins have defeated Alex Ovechkin's Capitals in all three post-season meetings between the two sides, but it's Washington's superstar who has been the bigger factor each time the two rivals clash. The Penguins challenged for goaltender interference because Connolly's stick had made contact with Murray's leg before Vrana's goal, but the league determined that Connolly's actions didn't impair Murray from making the save, so the goal stood.

"Obviously, Murray was great [Sunday], same as Holts", Ovechkin says. Because Dumoulin had adjusted his position just before the contact was made, Wilson avoided a suspension. With Penguins center Evgeni Malkin and winger Carl Hagelin both out with injuries in Game 1, Washington didn't take advantage of the opportunity, a theme in past postseason series between the teams.

Dumoulin said he'll "hopefully" be able to play. Dumoulin adjusted his positioning at the last second to brace for a hit from Alex Ovechkin, which was enough to keep Wilson from being suspended.

Wilson was already ready to move on. "It's a bit of an unfortunate play that he got hurt". "We did that in the first round and we're going to have to continue to do it moving forward". Most importantly, the Capitals continued to build on their lead rather than cling to it.
