Tonight’s slate:
Capitals @ Bruins, 7:30 ET, Game 7

#7 Washington Capitals @ #2 Boston Bruins
Game 7… 7:30 ET… TV: NBC Sports Network, CBC, Local Networks

Series: Tied 3-3

Projected starting goaltenders:
WAS- Braden Holtby (Playoff stats: 3-3, 2.17 GAA)
BOS- Tim Thomas (Playoff stats: 29-20, 2.07 GAA)

Injury report:
WAS- Tom Poti and Tomas Vokoun (groin, out)
BOS- Marc Savard, Adam McQuaid and Nathan Horton (concussion, out), Joe Corvo (knee, questionable), Patrice Bergeron (undisclosed, likely)

Game thoughts:
For several members of the Washington Capitals, this game will be a make-or-break moment. Superstar Alex Ovechkin attempts to show his leadership abilities on the big stage while head coach Dale Hunter does everything possible to keep his job. But the biggest surprise has to be the elevated play of UFA Alexander Semin, who scored three goals in the first six games. The Caps know this game is huge and should come out with their best effort.

However, defeating the current Stanley Cup Champions is another story. During Sunday's Game 6 victory, the Bruins came alive and proved rookie starting goalie Braden Holtby was a mere mortal. They also got gutsy performances from Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron-- two forwards that may be the key to this series. With the chance to close it out at home, I wouldn't bet against Beantown
Prediction: Bruins 4, Capitals 2
