National Hockey League taking a look at Wilson hit on Pittsburgh's Aston-Reese

Rinne blanked the Jets until Patrik Laine scored a power-play goal with 51 seconds to play.

Sullivan called for the National Hockey League to take action after Wilson knocked Penguins players out of consecutive playoff games with hits to the head.

Continuing with his hot streak, Guentzel scored an empty-netter with under a minute left to seal the game, his 10th goal of the postseason.

The Capitals entered the game more than a little peeved.

Jets 7, Predators 4 • In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Blake Wheeler scored on the power play with 4:59 to play and Winnipeg roared back from an early 3-0 deficit to defeat Nashville and grab a 2-1 lead in the second-round playoff series.

In the second period, Wilson delivered a check that made contact with Aston-Reese's head and sent the Penguins player face-down to the ice with what was later diagnosed as a broken jaw and a concussion, according to coach Mike Sullivan.

Oshie took the blame on himself for taking the penalty that led to Malkin's goal.

"Any arrogance that we might have had from our last couple of victories has been squashed from the fact that we're losing Tom, that he's been taken away from us for a couple games here", Oshie said before the game. Devante Smith-Pelly moved into Wilson's top-line right wing spot beside Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov.

Oshie scored Washington's lone goal - a shot from the slot on the power play 12:55 into the second that knotted the score at 1 - and Braden Holtby finished with 21 saves but the Capitals couldn't sneak anything else by Murray, who stopped 20 shots just two days after putting together an admittedly "shaky" performance in Game 3. Pittsburgh has gone 21-25 on the road and they have averaged 3.11 gpg and have allowed 3/26 gpg in those games. That was the Penguins' 24th and final shot. At the end of the day, I respect what kind of game he plays.

The Penguins now hold that 2-1 lead heading into the third period. Evgeni Malkin dove for a rebound, knocking the puck in the direction of Holtby's outstretched blocker.

There was no call initially, but a review showed that Malkin lunged toward the puck as it sat near the goal line and pushed it just over before Holtby pulled it back out with his glove. There was no initial goal call on the play, reminiscent of a sequence in Game 2 in which the red goal light remained unlit after Pittsburgh's Patric Hornqvist jabbed at it from in front. Just focus on playing our game, and that's what we're going to do. Washington responded with a challenge that there was goalie interference, but the goal was still deemed good and the Pens took a 2-1 lead. But we're looking at the next game.
