The Spirit of ’87
Happy Easter, which is traditionally a good holiday for the Washington Capitals, yes, definitely. The Capitals squandered a comeback and a chance to lock a playoff spot last night, but no worries– it’s not like the Wings are a strong 5v5 team with good coaching and a distinct home-field advantage.

No morning skate, so here’s how the Caps lined up last night.
Ovechkin — Kuznetsov — Ward
Johansson — Backstrom — Brouwer
Glencross — Fehr — Chimera
Laich — Latta — Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Green – Gleason

Programming note: Penultimate Snapshot on Monday.
There are only three games left. Goodness gracious.
Ottawa faces Pittsburgh on Tuesday– that’ll be huge.
