Game 67: Capitals at Kings date, time, how to watch, game thread

The Capitals are 5-4-1 since returning from the bye week and, after Thursday's loss in San Jose, have lost two consecutive games in regulation for just the third time this season. It's a swoon reminiscent of last season in which a Washington team that dominated the regular season slowed down in the last quarter of the season en route to a second round exit to the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Caps will try to buck that trend and return to the win column on Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Prediction recap: Washington survives Toronto's best shot

Prediction recap: Washington survives Toronto's best shot

The Maple Leafs made a push for Game 7, but in the end they fell in Game 6 as the Caps took the game and the series on Sunday.

Here's a recap of the three bold predictions.

1. Toronto will score in the third period - Correct

The hockey gods would not allow this prediction to be wrong. Did you see that bounce off the boards? Not only did it bounce right into the danger area right in front of the bench, it went to the Maple Leafs’ leading scorer in Auston Matthews.

2. Someone will take a penalty against Alex Ovechkin - Wrong

Give Mike Babcock all the credit in the world. Every point where you thought lack of experience would hurt Toronto, it didn’t. That speaks to coaching. I thought the Maple Leafs would try to coax a penalty out of Ovechkin, but would get carried away. Yet, despite their inexperience and the pressure of the moment, Toronto remained very disciplined.

3. If Toronto leads after the first period, the series is going 7 games - Push

For the first time all series, the score after the first period was 0-0. Both teams had chances but looked more tentative than they had earlier in the series. They recognized what was at stake on Sunday and affected the play to a degree.

2017 Results: I expected to see Toronto’s best push in Game 6 and I was not sure how the Caps would respond. Washington’s response late in the game was very impressive and a great sign for Caps fans going forward in the postseason.

Correct: 8
Wrong: 9
Push: 1

Justin Williams welcomed back to DC after Game 6 by speeding ticket

Justin Williams welcomed back to DC after Game 6 by speeding ticket

It was a good week for Justin Williams.

On Friday, the clutch veteran scored the game-winning goal in overtime of Game 5 to give the Capitals a 3-1 series lead over the Maple Leafs.

On Sunday, in an elimination Game 6, he assisted on the Marcus Johansson overtime winner in Game 6, advancing the Capitals in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

But when Williams returned to the Washington, D.C. area early Monday morning, he was greeted by some less than clutch news.

He was issued a speeding ticket.

RELATED: THREE OBSERVATIONS FROM GAME 6 VICTORY

Based on his tweet, it's still unclear if ti was a an automated ticket from a speed camera zone or if he was pulled over on his way back from the airport.

But nonetheless, it's a less than ideal addition to the 'welcome home' celebration.

Up next for William sis is an equally frustrating scenario: A seven-game series with the Penguins, which begins Thursday night.
