Empty Thoughts: Penguins 5, Capitals 4 (OT)

After Backstrom tried to make a poor pass from the left wing wall of his own zone to the slot, Penguins forward Kasperi Kapanen intercepted the puck and ripped a wrister past goaltender Vitek Vanecek’s glove for his ninth goal. There were no assists. The Penguins took their first lead at 8:32 of the second period.
