Stanley Cup Playoffs: Penguins Defeat Caps, Put Washington On Brink Of Elimination; Ducks Top Oilers In OT, Square Series At 2-2, Reclaim Home-Ice Advantage

The Stanley Cup Playoffs had two games played on Wednesday. 


At Pittsburgh:

Patric Hornqvist, Jake Guentzel, and Justin Schultz (power play) each scored a goal while Marc-Andre Fleury saved 36 of 38 shots as the Pittsburgh Penguins---sans the injured Sidney Crosby---held off the visiting Washington Capitals 3-2 in game four of their conference semifinal series.

The defending Stanley Cup champs, who now lead the series three games to one, can close out the Caps with a game-five victory in Washington on Saturday night.


At Edmonton, Alberta:

Jakob Silfverberg scored the winning goal 45 seconds into overtime as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on the road in game four of their conference semifinal series, now deadlocked at two games apiece.

Ryan Getzlaf scored twice in the second period for the Ducks, who have now reclaimed home-ice advantage in the series.
