Klingberg nets late as the Dallas Stars eliminate Predators

The win by the Stars came 11 years after the previous time they clinched a playoff series on home ice.

In the past we have seen a tentative Capitals team take the ice, play tight and collapse when things did not go their way.

Rookie Warren Foegele scored his team-leading fourth playoff goal and Teuvo Teravainen also tallied for the Hurricanes, who are playing in their first postseason since 2009.

The Hurricanes needed a team effort to hang with the Capitals and force a Game 7. It's tough to play in the playoffs, the crowd can be loud at times, and guys are coming in with their knees bent and they're trying to separate someone from the puck. Last spring Boston ran over Toronto 7-4 in the series clincher as -170 home betting chalk after the Maple Leafs had won both Game 5 and Game 6 of the set. "He's just keeping us in the game", Klingberg said. "We had good momentum and we obviously know we have such a good goalie".

That most recent playoff trip in 2016 ended with a Game 7 loss in the second round to the Blues in Dallas. Bishop's goaltending and Dallas' defense shut down Nashville's top scoring threats and held the Predators' power play to zero goals in 14 chances through the series. The Blues were 2-0 when Winnipeg scored the first goal in their series. 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. "Let's go play another game". And here's the scoop when it comes to Capitals starter Braden Holtby: he has been excellent every time he's been faced with a Game 7 scenario.

"That's the recipe", said head coach Rod Brind'Amour.

Rinne on his side said that he doesn't care how he gets fired up for these games, if it's positive or angry or how he wants to prepare. "We shouldn't be deer in the headlights when a game like this happens".

Nashville had only one shot in the last nine minutes of regulation, and that doesn't count Calle Jarnkrok's shot at an angle over Bishop that ricocheted off the crossbar.

"We slowly, second period, third period and overtime got better and better", Montgomery said. Dallas' Blake Comeau was able to net the equalizer in the second period.

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom will suit up for their 12th career Game 7 Wednesday as the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes try to push one another off the edge of elimination. Sebastian Aho led Carolina with 83 points in the regular season but has just one goal and four points so far in this series, which isn't bad but isn't enough.

"We wanted to close it out today and don't have to deal with going back there", said Klingberg, whose first goal of the playoffs came after five assists.

The Stars eliminated the Predators from the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, thus Dallas will move on to face the Blues as the first official Round 2 matchup. Justin Faulk uncorked a shot from the point and Brock McGinn and Staal both poked at it, with Staal ultimately slipping it past the Capitals goalie to make it 3-2. He had 54 points in 69 regular-season games and two points in the first round before being injured.

Stars forward Tyler Seguin dropped a pass to Alexander Radulov near the boards.
