Penguins-Capitals Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Capitals' stars shined the brightest in an opening act that will be hard to top.

Now its up to Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins to answer in Game 2 when the series resumes Saturday night.

This marquee second-round matchup featuring the NHL's two premier players lived up to its immense hype in Thursday's Game 1, though neither Crosby nor Alex Ovechkin had the greatest impact on the outcome. T.J. Oshie instead played the leading role in Washington's 4-3 victory, completing his first playoff hat trick with a wraparound goal 9:33 into overtime.
