The Hurricanes were out-played in nearly every piece of the game, they had less high-quality opportunities, they were losing in the faceoff circle, they were out-hit, and were outworked on special teams. Petr Mrazek has allowed 16 goals on 152 shots.

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. Washington winger T.J. Oshie was knocked out Game 4, and the series, when he suffered a broken collarbone, but that didn't deter the defending Stanley Cup champs from delivering a dominating performance that included three power-play goals and stout defensive stands that stymied Carolina's five power-play opportunities.

Russian hockey star Alexander Ovechkin lost his temper in Game 6 of the NHL playoffs against the Carolina Hurricanes, applauding the referees who disallowed his goal before being ejected from the game.

Nic Dowd added a penalty shot goal a few minutes later, and Ovechkin tallied his third goal of the playoffs with a slapper from the left point to give the Capitals their final 6-0 lead. The Capitals are 6-0 in their last 6 playoff games as a favorite, 16-5 in their last 21 games as a favorite and 7-3 in their last 10 Conference Quarterfinals games. Goaltender Braden Holtby held up his end, stopping all of Carolina's shots in Game 5. They host Game 7 on Wednesday. But through six games, the differences between this year's run and last year's have been glaring. He's the second player in club history with four home goals in a series, joining Mark Hunter - who did it with the Whalers against Boston in 1991. The Capitals have outscored the Hurricanes 14-5 in the previous three meetings in Washington. The Hurricanes have dominated this series five-on-five, only for the Capitals' power play to pull them through at home.
