NHL Three Stars: Hornqvist plays hero as Pens-Caps work OT again

No. 1 Star: Patric Hornqvist, Pittsburgh Penguins

Hornqvist scored his fifth of the postseason 2:34 into overtime to give the Penguins a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals and a 3-1 series lead.

No. 2 Star: Matt Cullen, Pittsburgh Penguins

Cullen tallied his third goal of the playoffs and gave the Penguins their first lead of Game 4 in the second period.

No. 3 Star: John Carlson, Washington Capitals

That Penguins’ lead lasted 13 minutes when the Capitals took advantage of a Derrick Pouliot defensive zone turnover and Carlson beat Matt Murray to even the score.

Honorable Mention: Murray stopped 34 shots, while Braden Holtby made 30 saves … Pittsburgh snapped an eight-game playoff overtime losing streak with the win … Trevor Daley scored his first playoff goal since 2014.

Did You Know? 

Dishonorable Mention: Pittsburgh’s power play went 0-for-4 and is 0-for-14 in the series … Washington has now lost three straight, something they did only once all season.
