Pitter-patter, let’s get at ‘er. The regular season is over and now the real dance begins.
At 7 PM tonight, the Capitals and the Flyers will face off at Verizon Center (or on CSN-DC).
You’ve been waiting for this since last May, and now it’s here. Crash the net.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||56-18-8||52.0%||101.1||21.9% (5th)||85.2% (2nd)|
|Philadelphia Flyers||41-27-14||50.1%||100.5||18.9% (11th)||80.5% (20th)|
Judging by this week’s practice and assuming everyone’s healthy, here are the lines from Katie Brown. Get pumped.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Richards – Johansson
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Schmidt – Orlov
Pat and Spenser laid it out for us.
At least the Caps have all the Skintangibles.
Caps fans, spread the word: If anyone in our house acts the way Penguins Fans did during a moment of silence, I will drop the gloves.

@JGreenberg81 If the Caps light 'em up- I think we should too! That's for you to play.

This has been the best regular season in Caps’ franchise history. Just two years after the team’s nadir, they’re back to being great and poised to make noise in the second season.
2015-16: It’s been real. It’s been fun. It’s been real fun.
Whatever happens next, this is my aesthetic:
CRASH THE NET.
