What a game. We went through 27 adult diapers collectively at the DOY offices. The Bruins had their chances and just couldn't seem to get a bounce. The defense kicked so much as and absolutely stifled the Capitals. Ovechkin had just one shot. Caps fans are talking about how he was throwing the body around. Great.

We'll let that slide though because Capitals fans have only known about hockey for a few years now. One hell of a game to watch though. Great action, great hits and B's came through in over time. After the jump..... one down, fifteen to go.....  - Tim "Big Save By" Thomas.
