Summary

Welcome to NHL.com, the official site of the National Hockey LeagueBienvenue à LNH.com , le site officiel de la Ligue nationale de hockeyДобро пожаловать на NHL.com, официальный сайт Национальной хоккейной лигиTervetuloa NHL:n viralliselle nettisivustolle NHL.comiinVälkommen till NHL.com, NHL:s officiella web-sidaVítejte na NHL.com, oficiálních stránkách National Hockey LeagueVitajte na NHL.com, oficiálnych stránkach National Hockey LeagueWillkommen auf NHL.com, der offiziellen Seite der National Hockey LeagueBienvenido a NHL.com, el sitio oficial de la National Hockey LeagueWASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals never said they thought the Pittsburgh Penguins were going to give up on first place in the Metropolitan Division.In case the Capitals needed a reminder, the Penguins sent a clear message of their intentions with a 4-3 win at Capital One Arena on Sunday.The first meeting between the rivals this season, a physical battle that heated up in intensity as it progressed, served as a refresher that these teams will probably have to go through each other again if they plan to win the Stanley Cup. That was the case when the Penguins won it in 2016 and 2017, and when the Capitals won it in 2018.Video: PIT@WSH: Murray lays out to thwart Ovechkin's rebound"They're a real good hockey team. With the Penguins having 30 games left, including three more against the Capitals -- at Capital One Arena on Feb. 23 and at Pittsburgh on March 7 and March 22 -- the race for the division is very much on."This is the kind of game we're going to see from here on in with the intensity and emotion and playoff kind of mentality," Crosby said. Ovechkin, who had been red hot with 11 goals in his previous five games and is second in the NHL with 37 goals this season, was held off the scoresheet.Video: PIT@WSH: Simon goes five-hole to double Pens leadThe Penguins got contributions from throughout their lineup, including one from rookie center Sam Lafferty, who was called up Saturday, that tied the game at 1-1 with 8:14 left in the first period, 1:08 after Lars Eller gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead. I just tried to get over there as fast as I could."After the Penguins got a goal from their third line, with Brandon Tanev scoring from the slot with 2:33 left, to make it 4-2, Eller responded 15 seconds later to pull the Capitals back within one, but they were not able to get the tying goal past Murray.Video: PIT@WSH: Tanev scores on deflection to extend lead"You should always play like it is your last game and with the determination we saw in the third.
