On Friday, Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen called the play "a risky hit" by Wilson and termed Wennberg's injury as "upper body".

Penalties proved to be the difference maker in the Capitals' 4-3 overtime loss Thursday to the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 1.

Panarin raced up the left wing, worked his way past Dmitry Orlov and flicked a quick wrist shot past goalie Philipp Grubauer and just under the crossbar for the game-winning goal.

You can see it in the video above. Columbus finished the regular season as one of the NHL's worst teams in both penalty kill and the power play.

Washington's ensuing five-minute major power play seemed to knock Columbus out of the game, however; Evgeny Kuznetsov scored at 17:52 and 18:21 of the first period to give the Capitals a 2-0 lead, and they'd enter the second period with 2:23 more to play with on the man advantage.

I thought I saw a definite movement with his knee towards Jack". "Whether it was a penalty or not, we didn't get it. Fans of both clubs also stood up to applause in the eighth minute while singing, "There's only one Ray Wilkins".


In other words, another dominant night. The Blue Jackets have an abundance of young guns, including Dubois, Wennberg, and Bjorkstrand, as well as some more aged goal scorers like Cam Atkinson and Artemi Panarin. Ovechkin has rebounded from his "worst" season ever - he still had 33 goals previous year - and has been pumping in shots from his favorite spot above the circle once again. I've got to be better. Trotz gave Grubauer the nod over 2016 Vezina Trophy victor Braden Holtby to start Game 1 but said afterward he'd consider his goaltending options ahead of Game 2 Sunday in Washington.

Alexander Wennberg was on the receiving end of a high, hard hit in Thursday's playoff series opener between the Blue Jackets and Capitals and is listed as doubtful for Game 2 which is scheduled for Sunday evening at Capital One Arena. So, he's spent a lot of time educating himself on what they're looking at and how they look at it and what's the certain things they look for. We're just doing it too often. "I thought there were clearly numbers (visible) there, so I'll just put it in the league's hand. We'll sit down and re-evaluate all the goals, evaluate our team and where we're at and go from there". Nonetheless, the game was tied 2-2, until Devante Smith-Pelly was able to shoot the puck past Jackets netminder Sergei Bobrovsky. "It was an important part of the game to not get hurt there and just keep on playing".

NOTES: Trotz said Kempny, whose head hit the glass on Anderson's hit from behind, would be re-evaluated Friday. Foligno missed a few shifts after he said Jerabek's shot cracked his visor into his face.

Washington won the Metropolitan Division, but they aren't almost as impressive as they were in the past two years. Panarin had three points in one game after recording just one in the Blackhawks' first-round loss via sweep last season.

What makes a suspension even more likely is that he received only a two-minute minor and that Wennberg left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return. Coach Barry Trotz continued to call his fourth-line center "day-to-day.".
