Caps Going to Game 7
Just a great, great game last night as the Caps recovered from the devastating Game 5 loss in New York to beat the Rangers 2-1 in DC and send the series to Game 7 on Saturday night. I cannot wait to see what happens.
Braden Holtby was just tremendous in goal. He closed everything down. The late goal by the Rangers was one of those weird flukey type goals that bounced off John Carlson in front of the net and plunked in.
The opening goal just over a minute into the game by Ovechkin really seemed to allow the Caps to play in a more relaxed fashion and when Chimera popped in the second goal things really looked good. It was intense until the end, but once it was 2-0 I felt pretty good (the last 50 seconds were tense).
Game 7 on the road is something I think the Caps are looking forward to. I am just amazed by the mental fortitude of this Caps team. Losing in triple overtime in Game 3 and then losing the heartbreaker in Game 5 would have destroyed Caps teams of old, but this team just seems to fight harder.
