Penguins top Capitals 3-2 to take 2-1 series lead

PITTSBURGH (AP) Outhit, outshot and largely outplayed, Pittsburgh grabbed control of its Eastern Conference semifinal against Washington anyway.

Blame it on a 21-year-old rookie goaltender who hardly seems intimidated by the stakes, the prospect of his mentor watching from the bench or the avalanche of shots from the NHL's best team.

Matt Murray made 47 stops and the Penguins did just enough counterpunching to edge the Capitals 3-2 on Monday night for a 2-1 lead in an increasingly fractious best-of-seven series living up to its billing.
