Finally. The Washington Capitals get to start their Stanley Cup run.
It couldn’t have come at a better time, as the Caps have been slogging along over the last couple weeks, after clinching the best record in the entire NHL. They lost three games in a row for the first time all year. They did give key players some rest in the last game, a 2-0 loss to the Ducks.
The Caps finished with the most wins in a single season in their history.
Alex Ovechkin just reached the 50 goal milestone (his seventh time!), with an incredible hat-trick against St. Louis on Saturday. He wanted it.
Now the playoffs. It’s time to ratchet the energy level back up to mid-season form when they couldn’t lose to anyone. You know expectations are at an all time high.
The Caps play the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round.
Game #1 starts here in DC, at the Verizon Center, on Thursday, April 14. Then Game #2 is here on Saturday, April 16.
