Summary

When you see the reward like they saw tonight, it's all worth it."We took the punch, we stood up, and we started punching back."Washington tried its best even in Game 6 to keep Florida from moving on, scoring late to force overtime and forcing the Panthers to work for the series victory.The Capitals were on the board first in that game too, when Nic Dowd beat Bobrovsky early in the second period.But Ryan Lomberg responded quickly for Florida, making it 2-2 heading into the third period.The Capitals kept the pressure on, and Backstrom put them back on top less than two minutes into that final frame. In doing so, Verhaeghe became the first NHL player to score three straight game-winning goals in the playoffs since David Krejci in 2011, and he's the first player in Florida's franchise history to score multiple OT playoff game-winners in a single series.The Panthers move on now to the second round holding the inauspicious designation of the only playoff team not to have scored a power play goal.
