Game 5 brings the series back to Capital One Arena, and no one was more popular in the first frame than Devante Smith-Pelly, back in the playoff lineup from Hershey.

DSP and the Caps’ fourth-line were absolutely buzzing early on, creating chances left and right hustling like it was - quite literally - their job.

And then the Caps drew first blood. On the power play, Nicklas Backstrom followed up his own rebound and buried it, giving the Capitals a 1-0 lead after twenty minutes in this one.

Second period ahead...
