The Capitals were able to eliminate the defending Stanley Cup Champions tonight and it was Joel Ward who was able to bang home the winner in overtime.
Chara and Marchand: I hope you hackers enjoy your early golfing season this
year and I hope that you all can break 100! Thornton
From my “NHL Playoff Predictions—East” article I quote:
“Do the Caps have anything to be afraid of? No, because they have won three of the four meetings against the Bruins this year (5-3 win, 4-1 loss, 4-3 win, and 3-2 win).
The Caps goaltenders Vokoun and Neuvirth are both injured, but Braden Holtby is an excellent goalie and had 35 saves in the 4-1 victory over the Rangers. In fact, Holtby’s numbers in seven games played this year are better than both Vokoun and Neuvirth. Holtby has a Save Percentage of .922 , one shutout, and a GAA of 2.49; while, Vokoun, in 48 games played, has a Save Percentage of .917, four shutouts, and a GAA of 2.51.
If the Caps lay it all on the line and Holtby can overcome the nerves and provide the support in net; then, the Caps have a legitimate chance of dethroning the Bruins. Thomas and the Bruins are going to be extremely tough and I am picking them to win the series but it would not shock me if the Caps were able to orchestrate an upset. I hope that the Caps win but my money is on the Bruins.”
The Bruins are the dirtiest team in the NHL so I must say it once again:
WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY FOR AN EXORCISM!
