With dominant win, Capitals rediscover swagger as they look to eliminate Hurricanes

If the recent version of the Capitals has a chance to put a team away, the team has done it.

"We're still in it", Nashville forward Viktor Arvidsson said.

"It's a very clear blueprint that gave us success, and it started right from the beginning of the game and it was everybody doing it", Reirden said.

After showing what they could do without Oshie and with Smith-Pelly back from a two-month stint in the minors for salary-cap reasons, the Capitals are another performance like this from facing former coach Barry Trotz and the New York Islanders in the second round. For what it's worth, Washington converted three of their power plays in Game 5. "Kill 'em off and then we got going after that".

Through the first four games of this first-round series with the Hurricanes, the Capitals had taken more hits than they'd dished out, especially where it concerned Carolina's fleet-footed defensemen. The reigning playoff MVP has three goals and four assists so far in the series and is hurting the Hurricanes with more than just his patented shot. Predators captain Roman Josi said the team has to "step up tonight" and play their best game if they want to see the next round of the playoffs.

Limited tickets remain for Game 7 at Capital One Arena.

The offense went dry in 2016 against Philadelphia in the first round and a 3-0 series lead suddenly was cut to 3-2 with the Flyers hosting Game 6. Justin Faulk uncorked a shot from the point and Brock McGinn and Staal both poked at it, with Staal ultimately slipping it past the Capitals goalie to make it 3-2. "We shouldn't be deer in the headlights when a game like this happens".

Capitals winger T.J. Oshie is expected to miss the rest of the playoffs after undergoing surgery to fix a broken right clavicle. They advanced in their first opportunity to do so in all four series previous year on the way to the first championship in franchise history and have developed something of a killer instinct. Jordan Martinook was back after a lower body injury kept him out of Game 5. "We weren't satisfied with the games in Carolina. Eventually if you do it for long enough and you believe in the rest of your systems enough, you will break them, and that will allow you to get the results you need, which is building your confidence".
