Sorry about the Caps. But as I have said many times, until the Caps get a rock solid goalie, and a defensive squad that can give him some help....the Caps won't ever go far.

I think the Caps need to change up their staff, starting at the top.

In the meantime, my B's will see if they can avenge their loss to Chicago in last year's SC finals. Go B's:

Red wings seemed a lot faster than the Bruins tonight. They took it to Boston, and deserved the win.

Read an article a year or two ago that when it comes to the SC playoffs, home ice in the first game, proves to be a disadvantage to the home team. Nerves? Pressure to perform? Anyway, stats show the home team often loses in the opener at home. Go figure.

Unbelievable

Hellava game.

Can Chicago stay into this game - mentally - after two games on the verge of being won?

My B's tomorrow.

Look at the first 15 seconds of the Bruins montage from last year that I linked. Ironically, Chicago beat Boston in the SC, with a last minute shot....

What goes around, comes around.

Great game.

Hit was to the head. Big no-no. If it had been in his chest, no major, and maybe no penalty.

Chara is a freak of nature. Ideal defensive player. Washington needs something like a Chara.

In my biased opinion, Boston is a better team than Detroit. But hockey is a game of emotions. That's true of many sports, but even more so with hockey. Tonight, Boston came with emotion, and played like THEY were the underdog.
