The Washington Capitals are back where they were in 2009, on the cusp of a truly remarkable season. They are again playing a game 7 they forced by staving off elimination, only this time the pressure is on their opponent. They also don't have home ice advantage, but thes...

For two of the three games in Washington, the Rangers appeared to be outmatched. This isn’t to say that the Caps actually outplayed the Rangers, except for Game Six, but it’s to say that the Caps appeared to match up better against the Rangers –and therefore played better– in those games. One can just look at the games and think that the Rangers just didn’t have it, or...
Sticking with our Henrik Lundqvist theme for today, there was a great discussion on Twitter between Japers Rink and Neil Greenberg of the Washington Post regarding the myth of the playoff goat or playoff underachiever. Fairly or not, Lundqvist (and Alex Ovechkin) have been labeled as playoff losers because both are elite players who have never advanced past the second round. In...
Hard work and determination got The New York Rangers to the top of the Eastern Conference, but much of the workload fell on goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. As the New York Rangers gear up for an explosive Game 7 against the Washington Capitals Saturday night, the Vezina Trophy finalist must continue his fight to advance past the dragon that has kept New York out of the playoffs the...

via ESPN Stats and Information Group, * Home teams are 86-57 all-time in Game 7s
* Capitals: all 7 playoff wins (and 5 of 6 losses) have been by one goal; FROM ELIAS: with another one-goal game, they would be 2nd team in last 5 years to play 13 such games in one postseason (NHL record is 16, by Hurricanes in 2006)

Although the Washington Capitals were officially eliminated from the playoffs by the New York Rangers in a Game 7 squeaker, the upstart club out of the No. 7 seed knows it let this series get away in what it thought was the final seconds of Game 5.
Just 7.6 seconds away from taking a 3-2 series lead over the top-seeded Rangers in the Eastern Conference semifinals, the seventh-seeded...
Of the NHL’s 30 member clubs merely five remain alive in the quest for Stanley, and one of them is ours. That’s a remarkable and wonderful thing, relative to the Capitals’ standing of just two months ago, but better still is the manner in which they’ve arrived at this competitive precipice: all the red-sweatered-wearers are buying into the system and creed and demeanor of...

Just a few things that caught my eye ...
Exhaustion is almost guaranteed with a new baby. Braden Holtby became a first-time dad on Thursday. Wonder how that's going to affect his game.
Score first and win. It seems to work in the Rangers-Capitals series. Can't wait for Saturday night ...
Speaking of dads -- if the Caps push through, 40-year...
