WASHINGTON (AP) Overtime came at the perfect time for the Washington Capitals.Outshot Columbus Blue Jackets T-Shirts Womens , outskated and outplayed by the Columbus Blue Jackets in a lopsided third period of Game 5, the Capitals went into their locker room at intermission Saturday with no choice but to talk about what went wrong in blowing yet another lead.”We knew we had to be better,” Nicklas Backstrom said.Better they were in a dominant overtime that Backstrom ended 11:53 in with his second goal of the game to give Washington a 4-3 victory and a 3-2 lead over the Blue Jackets in the first-round series. Thanks to goaltender Braden Holtby making 15 of his 39 saves in the third period and Backstrom’s first two goals of these playoffs, the Metropolitan Division champions can close out Columbus on the road Monday in Game 6.”I think we’ve always regrouped at intermissions and came back,” said Holtby, who has stopped 102 of 109 shots since replacing Philipp Grubauer in net two periods into Game 2. ”It shows our confidence and our experience in a lot of areas.”The playoff-tested Capitals took punch after punch when they were outshot 16-1 by the Blue Jackets in the third period, including Oliver Bjorkstrand’s deflection goal 2:30 in that tied it. Holtby made saves in quantity and quality, most notably on Columbus No. 1 center Pierre-Luc Dubois on a rebound and again on an attempt to bat the puck out of the air, to get to overtime for the fourth time in five games this series.That’s when everything changed. Suddenly, two-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was besieged Columbus Blue Jackets Hoodies Womens , having to stop Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson from point-blank range early in overtime.”We just came out as a new team,” Carlson said. ”We’ve went out and attacked in every game that we’ve won. That was our mindset, and I think we played a great overtime.”Overtime has been the difference in this series. Artemi Panarin and Matt Calvert scored the winners in Games 1 and 2 for Columbus, Lars Eller in double OT in Game 3 for Washington and then Backstrom in Game 5, deflecting defenseman Dmitry Orlov’s shot past Bobrovsky to send the sellout crowd in Washington into a frenzy.”I got a tip on it, and it’s usually what happens in the playoffs,” Backstrom said. ”Tip goals or rebound goals. That’s the way it is.”The road team won the first four games of a Stanley Cup playoff series for the fifth time over the past 10 years. Holtby’s 39 saves, including a big one on Bjorkstrand in overtime, made sure the home team won Game 5 for the fifth time.”One of our best players, our goalie Columbus Blue Jackets Hats Womens , was our best player again,” Washington forward Brett Connolly said. ”He’s come in here and he’s played three amazing games. Kudos to him. He’s been great for us and we obviously need him to keep playing this way if we’re going to be successful.”Bobrovsky didn’t play poorly other than perhaps a soft goal allowed to Evgeny Kuznetsov early in the second period. After two goals from Matt Calvert and his team’s effort wasn’t enough Saturday, coach John Tortorella is betting on ”Bob” to come up big again in Game 6.”Two good goalies. Good game,” Tortorella said. ”We’ll be back here for Game 7.”It’s now the Capitals’ goal to avoid a Game 7 at home, where they’re 2-5 over the past decade in the Ovechkin era. Coach Barry Trotz, whose team has lost the past two times they’ve played Game 7 at home, shrugged off Tortorella’s assurance of a game in Washington on Wednesday after players insisted they know what to expect from Columbus in Game 6.”What else is he going to say?” Trotz said. ”It’s our job for that not to happen.”NOTES: Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 29 shots. … Thirteen of the Capitals’ past 24 playoff games have been decided in overtime. … With an assist on T.J. Oshie’s power-play goal, Carlson has eight points through five games. … Ovechkin led all players with seven shots on goal. … Calvert scored twice in a playoff game for the second time in his career. … Blue Jackets C Alexander Wennberg returned after missing Games 2, 3 and 4 following a hit to the head from Tom Wilson. He replaced Sonny Milano in the lineup. … The Capitals made no changes after winning back-to-back games in Columbus, keeping Chandler Stephenson on the second line in the absence of Andre Burakovsky Custom Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys , who’s out for at least the remainder of the series with an upper-body injury.— CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Despite a depleted lineup, the Calgary Flames showed their depth and kept their winning streak going.Oliver Kylington scored his first NHL goal and helped set up Garnet Hathaway’s tiebreaking score as the Flames beat the Nashville Predators 5-2 Saturday night for their fifth straight win.Sean Monahan, Alan Quine and Elias Lindholm also scored to help the Pacific Division-leading Flames move one point ahead of Central-leading Nashville into first place in the Western Conference.“We have a great team in here,” said Hathaway, who tied a career-high with his fourth goal. “When you get depth scoring and you get those guys playing as well as they are. We have roles right now and guys are stepping up.”Hathaway put the Flames ahead 3-2 at 6:03 of the third period, neatly deflecting Matthew Tkachuk’s point shot. Kylington, a 21-year-old rookie defenseman, had the second assist on the play.The Flames got some insurance with 7:48 left when Quine — recalled earlier in the day from the AHL’s Stockton Heat — got his first of the season off a setup from rookie defenseman Rasmus Andersson.Quine, 25 , had six NHL goals in 84 career games with the New York Islanders. He was inserted into the lineup with the Flames missing Mikael Backlund (concussion), who was injured Thursday, as well as Ryan Lomberg and captain Mark Giordano, who both received two-game suspensions from separate incidents in that same game against the Minnesota Wild.“To play in the best league in the world is the ultimate goal. When you’re in the minors, you’re trying to give yourself an opportunity to be in that spot and I’m happy that I got that opportunity,” Quine said. “To be able to fit in and contribute, it’s a great feeling.”Lindholm capped the scoring with an empty-netter with 3 minutes left.Mike Smith stopped 25 shots to win his sixth straight after a rocky start to the season.Kylington’s goal came 1:12 into the game when he took a pass from Lindholm and fired a rising shot over Predators goalie Juuse Saros.“Amazing feeling,” said Kylington, the Flames’ second-round pick in the 2015 draft. “When I got it off my stick I had a good feeling, and when I saw the puck in the back of the net Dallas Stars T-Shirts Womens , a happy feeling, obviously.”His first goal and point came in his seventh career game.“Seeing our guys smile like that is a proud moment as a coach,” Flames coach Bill Peters said. “Kylington has been working towards that goal his whole life and to see him get rewarded after all the hours on the ice and off the ice is special.”Colton Sissons and Craig Smith scored for the Predators, who fell to 0-5-1 in their last six on the road. Saros finished with 20 saves.“We gave them too much,” Craig Smith said. “They capitalized on a lot of quick turnovers. We’re going to have to go back and look at the tape and make some adjustments again and correct it.”The Predators tied it 1-1 in the final minute of the first when Roman Josi carried the puck down the wing and feathered a pass in front thatSissons neatly tipped past Mike Smith.Monahan restored Calgary’s lead late in the second when he was left with a free path to the front of the net and he scored his team-leading 18th on a backhand.Craig Smith tied it 2-2 early in the third on a wrist shot from a bad angle that dribbled through Mike Smith.“I think the effort was there. It’s just a game of inches, a couple bounces here and there,” said Saros.NOTES: Josi has 10 assists in his last 12 games. … Calgary’s Johnny Gaudreau had two assists to extend his points streak to seven games. .. Lindholm, who also had an assist, increased his points streak to six games. … The Flames’ Mark Jankowski played in his 100th career game. … Calgary improved to 14-2-0 when scoring first. .UP NExTPredators:: Host Ottawa on Tuesday night to open a three-game homestand.Flames: At Edmonton on Sunday.
