ANNAPOLIS Patrik Berglund Jersey Womens , Md. (AP) T.J. Oshie found a moment of tranquility as he stared through the darkness and into the crowd at fans holding their cellphones up to light up the stadium.With music playing and an opportunity to reflect, he contemplated the spectacle of playing an outdoor game at the U.S. Naval Academy that will go down in the standings as an important 5-2 victory by Oshie and the Washington Capitals over the Toronto Maple Leafs. For Oshie, first star John Carlson and especially the American players on the winning side of the first NHL outdoor game at a service academy, the two points are great but the meaning was more significant.”I really made a point to soak it all in tonight, to really enjoy it as much as I could,” Oshie said after the Capitals’ second consecutive victory following a run of four losses in six games. ”Tonight was a lot of fun. It was pretty special for me, pretty special for the team here.”The Capitals put on a special performance at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium under the lights that went out because of a power surge with 10 minutes left. A 15-minute delay did nothing to stem the tide of Washington’s win that included Alex Ovechkin’s 40 goal of the season and 598th of his career.Ovechkin became the sixth player in NHL history with nine-plus 40-goal seasons, joining Wayne Gretzky (12), Marcel Dionne (10), Mario Lemieux (10) http://www.officialhockeyjetsshop.com/authentic-adidas-nikolaj-ehlers-jersey , Mike Gartner (nine) and Mike Bossy (nine).”Forty is good, but 50’s better,” Ovechkin said. ”I still have time to do that.”The offensive fireworks of the first two periods – including three goals in the first 6:19 – matched the pomp and circumstance of the NHL’s first game at a U.S. service academy. Navy midshipmen and Canadian servicemen and women took part in a patriotic pregame ceremony capped off by a memorable flyover with only the afterburners visible against the night sky.In one of the best-themed outdoor games to date, the game was played on a rink on top of a facsimile of an aircraft carrier with a replica jet stationed in one corner. Capitals coach Barry Trotz wore a dark Navy cap with a gold ”N” on the front as he stood in front of the lit up names of several battles, including Iwo Jima and Okinawa.Amid some recent struggles that shrunk their lead atop the Metropolitan Division, the Capitals put together a game that matched the stage.”It seemed like we were on the right side of the puck all night,” said Carlson, who had a goal and two assists and honored former Navy quarterback Roger Staubach with a blue and gold suit featuring his No. 74 on the shoulders. ”We weren’t really ever getting beat for breakaways and odd-man rushes. We were in good position and the work ethic was there to get back.”Playing in windy conditions that kept teams from practicing on this rink before the game, the Capitals didn’t appear at all bothered by the significant change from indoor hockey. The wind blew about 16-20 mph throughout the night, but the difference in play was more significant than the weather with the Capitals beating the Maple Leafs in a rematch of their first-round playoff series.”They look at us and they still think we’re kids Patrik Laine Jersey ,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. ”And it looked like we were kids here tonight. I thought they smacked us around.”Washington’s power play went 2 for 2 and five goals on 25 shots was enough to chase Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen 11:10 into the second period. It’s the fourth consecutive game and eighth of the past nine in which Andersen allowed three-plus goals and his eighth overall giving up five or more, but this was the first time coach Mike Babcock pulled him for performance reasons this season.”It was going in,” Babcock said. ”And I didn’t want to leave him in there and be a bunch more go in.”The Capitals certainly had the potential to put the puck in more. Now they just hope they can turn the emotions from this game into a run as they begin a three-game Western Conference road trip.”You get confidence off this,” Backstrom said. ”I feel like the last couple games we’ve been playing a little bit better as a team and we’re talking about it every day. We want to get better and better. We should never be satisfied.”NOTES: Curtis McIlhenney stopped all nine shots he faced in relief of Andersen. … The gold-medal-winning U.S. Olympic men’s curling team delivered the puck for the ceremonial faceoff by curling it to center ice. John Shuster’s rink and the gold-medal-winning U.S. women’s hockey team were honored as part of the festivities. … Maple Leafs center Tomas Plekanec became the first player in NHL history to appear in an outdoor game with two different teams in the same season. Plekanec played for the Montreal Canadiens in the Centennial Classic in December. … Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews missed his fourth consecutive game with an apparent right shoulder injury. … Deputy commissioner Bill Daly says the NHL hopes to stage outdoor games at Army’s West Point and the Air Force Academy.UP NEXT:Maple Leafs: At Buffalo on Monday night.Capitals: At Anaheim on Tuesday night.— WASHINGTON (AP) Overtime came at the perfect time for the Washington Capitals.Outshot, 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 Vladimir Sobotka Jersey Womens , 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, 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 Aaron Ekblad Jersey ,” 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, 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 http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authentic-aleksander-barkov-jersey , 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, who’s out for at least the remainder of the series with an upper-body injury.—
