These are the three concerns I have about the Capitals for game 3.
1. The injured ones. John Erskine is still out and most likely will be replaced by Tyler Sloan who played well in the last game. Eric Fehr is a game time decision. He missed nearly all of game two after taking a bit hit in the corner. The Caps have not recalled any players from Hershey. If Fehr can't play, Micheal Nylander will be his replacement. Karl Alzner made the trip to Pittsburgh which means there could be another defenseman on the fence.
2. Evgeni Malkin. You could say that Malkin has been invisible for this series thus far. Or you could say that the Matt Bradley, Dave Steckel and Brooks Laich line played fantastic against Malkin's line. Still, you can't keep good talent down for too long.
3. The Penguins' home ice. The Penguins play well at home, and that hasn't changed in the post season. If the Caps can score first and get the crowd out of it, they have a very good chance to win the game. If the Caps get behind by two or more goals, it will be a very tough road for a comeback.
Let's Go Caps!
