Caps Take Series in Game 6 With 1-0 Win

In the end, there was only so much that Michal Neuvirth could do. Despite 28 saves on 29 shots Sunday afternoon, in what would stand as nothing short of another impressive performance, the Washington Capitals were finally able to solve their former teammate enough to squeak past the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 to clinic their first round Stanley Cup playoff series in Game 6 in Philly. Nicklas Backstrom’s goal at 8:59 of the second period stood as the game’s only goal as Caps goalie Braden Holtby countered with his own mastery in net – stopping all 26 shots he faced. Washington, with former Flyers Mike Richards and Justin Williams, next take on the Pittsburgh Penguins, who topped the New York Rangers, 4-1. For more on Game 6, click here.
