Capitals use sting of playoff loss to Penguins as motivation

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) When Matt Niskanen contemplated skipping a trip to the gym over the summer, he remembered what happened in May.

As the offseason went on, Niskanen thought less and less about the Washington Capitals' loss to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Instead, he let the memory of the second-round playoff exit fuel him from time to time.

"That hurt, it lingers, and I think you can use that as motivation," Niskanen said. "That kind of stuff creeps into your mind and it pushes you."
