Fehr snaps tie, Pens pull even with Caps

WASHINGTON (AP) Already down a game in their second-round playoff series, Kris Letang and the Pittsburgh Penguins suddenly were down a man, too, on Saturday night, when Olli Maatta was leveled by a high hit from Washington's Brooks Orpik less than 5 minutes in.

So the Penguins simply did what they've been doing for weeks and weeks now: They figured out a way to set aside a setback.

Letang played more than 35 minutes to help make up for fellow defenseman Maatta's absence, and Eric Fehr scored the tiebreaking goal against his former team with about 4 1/2 minutes remaining, giving the Penguins a 2-1 victory over the Capitals that evened the Eastern Conference series at a game apiece.
