  • Jake Guentzel-assist

Dumoulin practiced Monday and is considered a game-time decision in terms of Tuesday’s lineup. He was crunched by both Tom Wilson and Alex Ovechkin, which knocked him out of the remainder of the game in period two of game two. Evgeni Malkin will be a game-time decision for the Pens as he looks to return from injury as well.

The Capitals combined to block nearly as many shots (31) as Holtby made saves (32)!
