So, who moves on? Moments later, Carolina captain Justin Williams netted the Hurricanes' fourth goal. In fact, his 3-4 record belies his actual performance in Game 7s, and that he's below.500 in such games is hardly on Holtby. That goal tied the game at 2-2, a score that held until the second intermission despite a number of chances (both on special teams and at even strength) from both sides. Kuznetsov was the Game 7 hero in 2015 when he scored the game and series-winning goal against the New York Islanders.
The Western Conference's top two seeds are out in the first round, and with Dallas, St. Louis and Colorado all defeating their higher seeded opponents to advance, every team remaining feels like they've got a shot to make a run in a wide-open bracket. Home games aren't as important in game sevens as they are in the National Basketball Association, but it's meant everything when the Hurricanes and Capitals clash.
The Stars will now draw the St. Louis Blues, who went from last place on January 2 to the team no one in the West wanted to play in the playoffs. That's going to require traffic in front, sustained pressure and possibly an early goal. They didn't need quite as many this time, and won't have to go back to Music City. As far as the Hurricanes are concerned, that means all eyes will be on Sebastian Aho come Wednesday night. Tomas Hertl scored shorthanded in the second extra frame on Sunday to give his team the win, with Logan Couture also scoring for the Sharks in the first period, and Martin Jones making 58 saves on the night. Has he had some impact? He is leading Carolina in both goals and points at this point.
Less skate on post: Bobrovsky is powerful moving into and off his posts, able to take away the bottom of the net with a skate on each post when play is behind the goal. While the curse of playoff failures past still clearly resonates through a nervous fan base, there was nothing but confidence coming out of MedStar Capitals Iceplex. He's proven he can perform in Game 7s, too. "Let's go play another game". If he's given no room to breathe, could his frustration show again?

It is thought the mom to the puppies dumped may be among those impounded and there are hopes they can be reunited. Culwell remained silent when confronted by a reporter outside her home as she was taken into custody.
But that call changed everything. But he also had a tripping penalty with 1:53 left in regulation that put Nashville on the power play.
Micheal Smith: Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov said that he's feeling better and that he hopes to play in Game 6. Nashville had a chance to force a Game 7 of their own with a win on the road against the Dallas Stars on Monday, but an overtime thriller ended with the Stars netting the game-winner and eliminating the Preds in six games. This season, Oshie put up 54 points in 69 games. Thus, if it's not egregious, it might not get called.
"That's not how the league or the referees saw it", he said. Hurricanes LW Micheal Ferland (upper body) missed his third straight game.
Two Game 7's on Tuesday! Only Williams, though, is known as "Mr. Game 7" in the lineup. Washington's Carl Hagelin (8-1) is tied with Ray Bourque, Brad Richards and Glenn Anderson with eight wins; a Capitals win would give him sole possession. "He's just keeping us in the game", Klingberg said.
