The Caps return to Washington tonight in hopes of finally closing out this series. After failing to eliminate the Flyers in Game Four, the Caps have one mission: end it. End it now.
I’m not particularly picky about how the Caps win; I’d just like to see them lock this series up already. Alas, it would be nice to see some of that mythical even-strength scoring, the kind that’s been nearly nonexistent for the past four games.
Will they or won’t they? Tune into CSN-DC at 7 PM to find out.

Alex Ovechkin: "We control our destiny right now, in this moment. We have to play hard, play simple and play smart."

This, hands down, is my favorite New Yorker cover of 2016. Now, which Prince tunes are you jamming to today?
