Svechnikov, Ferland could return for Hurricanes in Game 7

NHL Injuries: Hurricanes, Stars, Capitals, and Jets

Oshie was injured late in Game 4 at the Hurricanes on a hit from behind from Warren Foegele. Petr Mrazek stopped just 22-of-28 shots.

But the Capitals and their fans are not happy at all about a controversial call in the third period that took back what looked like was a game-tying goal for Washington.

Williams then put Carolina up by two goals 84 seconds later by tipping Brett Pesce's shot past Holtby and Hamilton extended the lead with his empty-netter with 3:06 left.

Alex Ovechkin regained Washington's lead with 4:48 left in the first, picking up the puck in transition and firing it around a sliding Jaccob Slavin, then breaking out into an enthusiastic celebration, but his enthusiasm would later grow into frustration. Defensively, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 71.4 percent of their opponents power plays. The Capitals blitzed the Hurricanes 6-0 on Saturday night, setting the stage for the chance to close them out on the road in Game 6 (7 p.m. EDT, NBCSN). They went into Winnipeg in the second round a year ago down 3-2 and forced a Game 7 back at home and will try to do the same this time (8:30 p.m. EDT, CNBC).

The Hurricanes are facing elimination after getting drubbed in Washington, 6-0, in Game 5. The over is 5-2 in Hurricanes last 7 overall. The Capitals have outscored the Hurricanes 14-5 in the previous three meetings in Washington. Justin Faulk uncorked a shot from the point and Brock McGinn and Staal both poked at it, with Staal ultimately slipping it past the Capitals goalie to make it 3-2. But through six games, the differences between this year's run and last year's have been glaring. The Blues, who have home-ice advantage this time, won that 2016 series with a Game 7 win in Dallas. The Hurricanes have dominated this series five-on-five, only for the Capitals' power play to pull them through at home. It's doubtful we will see a rematch between the two but what we will see is the end of the series as the Caps advance into the next round against their former coach Barry Trotz and the New York Islanders.
