Justin Williams was moved down to the third line for Friday's practice.

The Capitals appear to be shaking on their lines, which isn't surprising given that they're on the brink of elimination heading into Game 5 against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

May 3 - 9:47 AM

Justin Williams had a blunt way of describing the Capitals' showing in the first 40 minutes of Game 2 on Saturday.

Washington was outshot by Pittsburgh 28-8 by the second intermission. "We talked between the second and third, knowing we were getting embarrassed out there," Williams said. Washington did bounce back in the third frame, but it wasn't enough to stop the Penguins' 2-1 victory. Pittsburgh are an incredibly tough team to make up ground against. Pittsburgh was 39-0-0 when leading through two periods in the 2015-16 campaign and 4-0-0 in the playoffs.

Justin Williams recorded two assists in the Capitals' 6-1 victory over Philadelphia in Game 3 on Monday.

Williams had been held off the scoresheet in the first two games of this playoff series.

Apr 19 - 9:40 AM

Justin Williams had a game-high four shots on goal in Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Apr 10 - 11:31 PM

While Williams' career was marred by injuries through age-28, he's been a beacon of health and consistency since. In fact, with two more games played this weekend he'll will have played a full season without missing a game for the sixth time in his career. With just one game missed since 2010-11 to boot. Williams has three Cups and a Conn Smythe to his well earned "Mr. Game Seven" moniker, all the while posting 249 goals and 634 points along the way. A remarkable career to say the least.
