Vowing there would be a Game 7, Ovechkin made good on his promise with three assists as the Capitals went into Pittsburgh and came away with a gritty 5-4 win in OT. Losers of their last seven OT games, the Caps' couldn't hold their 4-3 lead when Crosby scored late in the third period. But David Steckel came to the rescue when he went to the net after winning a faceoff and tipped a shot by Brooks Laich past Marc-Andre Fleury 6:22 into OT. ''I think it's going to be great game,'' Ovechkin said. ''I think the league wants us to play Game 7.''
