After a tough start to the postseason, losing three straight after winning the first game to go down 3-1, the caps had another valiant comeback – led again by Alexander the Great. Winning games 5 and 6 to tie the series, our Caps forced a game 7 last night, and what a game 7 it turned out to be. Tied at 2-2 in regulation, the game went to sudden-death over time, and the caps postseason came to a halt after just over 6 minutes in when Joffrey Lupul slipped a rebound past Caps Goalie Cristobal Huet. It was a tough game, with some questionable calls, but at the end of the day, it was a great, well-matched series, and our boys played well.

I think that this team has learned a lot from this postseason, and so have the capitals fans. Hopefully DC won’t forget about hockey this offseason as quickly as it remembered the sport over the past couple of months. We have a lot of young talent on this team and they promise to bring some excitement to our town for years to come (Ovie has 13 years left on his contract!). So here’s to a fantastic playoff run, and an exciting first round, with hopes that there will be plenty more where that came from.
