Canes Stay Alive with 5-2 Win in Game 6

Caps can't close out Canes in Raleigh, and will host Carolina in Game 7 on Wednesday

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

With a chance to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs in Monday's Game 6 against the Hurricanes in Carolina, the Caps managed a decent enough start. But their failure to add to the first leads a road team has owned in this series - combined with some self-inflicted wounds and a controversial disallowed goal - left them short at the end.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Canes 2, Caps 1

Caps lose series lead and Oshie in Game 4, they weather Canes' forecheck, but can't generate 5v5 offense, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Better Than Broken - Better wasn't quite good enough for the Capitals on Thursday night in Raleigh, maybe because the bar was set so low after a dismal performance in a 5-0 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3 here on Monday. The Caps knew they'd need to match the Canes' intensity and drive in Game 4, and for the most part, they did. But a soft start and two ill-timed mistakes in the middle of the ice cost them a 2-1 decision to Carolina in Game 4.
