Third period thread.

The Capitals decided to take a Cinco de Mayo siesta in the second frame, and the Penguins pounced.

Sidney Crosby scored on a deflected Phil Kessel shot on the power play early on to tie it, and Patric Hornqvist stuffed home a crease-corner puck on another power play to stake Pittsburgh to a 3-2 lead at the second intermission.

The shots that period? 18-5 Penguins.

Third period ahead...
