Foegele received a two-minute minor for boarding on the play.
The Hurricanes were able to kill off the penalty and hold onto their 2-1 lead for the duration of the game. From there, the Hurricanes fed off their home crowd's energy and stepped up the physicality, allowing Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom little room to operate in the early going. "With the situation where, to get his game back to where it was a year ago around this time, it was important for him to play a lot of minutes".
Capitals head coach Todd Reirden echoed Ovechkin's sentiments, calling the hit a "dangerous play" on a 'defenseless player, ' while noting that Oshie will be out for an extended period, according to ESPN's Emily Kaplan. "It has to be a different call", Ovechkin said to Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post.
"We won't be having one of our key players for quite some time", Reirden said.Читайте также: Folau's comments 'completely wrong' - Genia
The Capitals are planning to provide more information on the extent and Oshie's injury on Friday. They are also down a top-six winger so the lines will have to be shuffled yet again in order to ice a complete lineup.
The Capitals began their adjustments personnel-wise on Friday, recalling Devante Smith-Pelly from AHL Hershey on Friday. Join the Stars And Sticks team! He scored seven goals in the 2018 postseason, which was 4th on the Capitals in goal-scoring.
While it is hard, it isn't impossible. In order for the Capitals to succeed in Saturday's Game 5, they have to use the "next man up" formula that helped them win the Stanley Cup last spring.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
