WASHINGTON (AP) Patric Hornqvist Devin Shore Jersey , Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel scored in a 4:49 span of the third period to help the Pittsburgh Penguins rally to for a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on Thursday night in Game 1 of the second-round series.Down 2-0 and playing without Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin, Pittsburgh turned it around with all three of its top-line forwards chipping in a goal. Crosby scored the tying goal when the puck bounced to him off Alex Ovechkin’s stick, and assisted on Guentzel’s go-ahead goal.Matt Murray stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced to put the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions ahead in yet another series with Game 2 on Sunday in Washington. The Penguins have won nine in a row under coach Mike Sullivan dating to 2016, including the past two meetings against Washington.Evgeny Kuznetsov scored 17 seconds in and Ovechkin beat Murray 28 seconds into the third period for the Capitals, who lost a game started by Braden Holtby for the first time in these playoffs.Holtby allowed three goals on 25 shots.GOLDEN KNIGHTS 7, SHARKS 0LAS VEGAS (AP) – Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 33 shots for his third shutout of the playoffs, and the Vegas beat San Jose in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.Cody Eakin, Erik Haula and Jonathan Marchessault scored 1:31 apart early in the first period to get Vegas going. Alex Tuch, Shea Theodore, Colin Miller and James Neal also scored, Reilly Smith and William Karlsson each had three assists, and Marchessault and David Perron added two each.Fleury, who improved to 5-0 in the playoffs, got his 13th career shutout in the playoffs – and second straight. He also blanked Los Angeles 1-0 in Game 4 of the first round.The Golden Knights have now outscored opponents 14-3 in five games in the postseason.Sharks goalie Martin Jones, who stopped 128 of 132 shots in the first round against the Ducks, was pulled a little more than three minutes into the second period after allowing five goals on 13 shots. Backup goalie Aaron Dell came in and finished with 19 saves. After season-opening losses in overtime by identical 3-2 scores, the Los Angeles Kings and the Detroit Red Wings meet Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.The Kings were beaten by the San Jose Sharks on Friday night at the Staples Center in the debut of right winger Ilya Kovalchuk. He returned to the NHL after playing in Russia for five seasons, signing a three-year, $18.75 million contract during the summer.Kovalchuk played 20:15, including 5:36 on the power play, and was credited with two shots on goal, three attempts that were blocked, and one shot that missed the net. He played on a line with center Anze Kopitar and left winger Alex Iafallo.Article continues below ...“We’ve got to be better with the tools we’ve got,” Kovalchuk told the Los Angeles Times after the game. “We’ve got to be better than what we’re at right now.”Especially on the power play, as the Kings went 0 of 5.“Sometimes we can’t even get in the zone; it’s unacceptable,” Kovalchuk said. “(Coach) John (Stevens) put us out there. He believed in our skill and our willingness to do the right things, and we have to do it to be able to win.”But Kopitar sees signs of hope.“I think we should be encouraged from this game,” he said. “Obviously there is some stuff to work on Womens Esa Lindell Jersey , but it’s the first game of the season, so not everything is going to be perfect.”Detroit, which was outshot 39-20 on Thursday night by the Columbus Blue Jackets at Little Caesars Arena, needs to spend more time in the offensive zone, according to coach Jeff Blashill.“Too much time in D-zone coverage, so I thought the ice got tilted too much the wrong way,” Blashill said on www.mlive.com. “When you’re in D-zone coverage, it’s hard to establish a forecheck because you’re getting it in and changing.“We got to be able to get it out smoother than that, so as a result you’re defending most of the time.”Blashill also said the Red Wings passed up too many opportunities to get shots off.“The other thing that hurt us is we had chances to shoot pucks and create chaos, which would have created a little more O-zone We didn’t shoot enough pucks,” Blashill said.Detroit featured six rookies in its opening night lineup, five of whom made their NHL debuts.It was the first NHL game for defensemen Dennis Cholowski, 20; Libor Sulak, 24; and Filip Hronek, 20; winger Michael Rasmussen, 19, and center Christoffer Ehn, 22, and the sixth NHL game for defenseman Joe Hicketts, 22.The four defensemen were particularly impressive.Cholowski scored his first NHL goal, playing on the top defense pairing with Danny DeKeyser and logging 19:51 of ice time. Sulak played 18:26, Hronek 16:03 and Hicketts 18:43.“They did good. They did really well in front of me,” said Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard, who made 38 saves. “Obviously they’re young, there’s going to be times where mistakes happen, but for the most part I thought they did a really good job.”Hronek and Hicketts were recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday because of injuries to veteran defensemen Jonathan Ericsson (upper body) and Niklas Kronwall (unknown).Detroit plays Monday night at Anaheim. Ericsson is expected to miss both road games. The latest plan was for Kronwall to play in one of the games.
