Three things we're talking about today when we're talking about the Caps

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

1. Penguins netminder Matt Murray has a 6-2-0/1.96/.937 line in the playoffs, including 47-for-49 and 34-for-36 efforts in stealing Pittsburgh a couple of victories this series. You'd think that would earn him a little slack when he has a single off night, as he did in Game 5 Saturday night (statistically, at least, and even then it's a bit of a stretch).

You'd be wrong:

Would Mike Sullivan really go to Marc-Andre Fleury, who hasn't played since March, for Game 6? It seems unlikely (far more likely, these are just click-baiting headlines and sports radio/chat room fodder, a byproduct of an extra day off between Games 5 and 6). But the question is certainly out there, and it's the Caps' job to keep it there.


2. A goal and an assist later and Alex Ovechkin is good once again. Amazing.

More on this developing situation as events warrant.


3. Congrats to former Caps bench boss Bruce Boudreau on finding a new gig so unsurprisingly quickly.
