The Capitals earned their first win of the series in Game 3, but they still need to win Game 4 to tie the series at two and avoid the 3-1 deficit.
That job will be made easier by the unfortunate injury to Sidney Crosby who will miss Game 4 with a concussion. Crosby suffered the injury on a hit from Matt Niskanen in the first period of Game 3.
Niskanen was ejected from the game, but he will be back in the lineup for Game 4 after the NHL decided not to issue any supplementary discipline for the hit.
