Wednesday night has arrived and it’s Game Seven of the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins series. I don’t know what to say anymore. You all already know…this is it.
The series is tied 3-3.
Puck drop is a little after 7:30 PM on NBCSN. Godspeed, everyone.

Looks like Braden Holtby got a little note before his big game from a very talented neighbor.

Justin Williams – “I can tell you one thing, I’m going to give it all I have tonight and make sure I don’t let my teammates down.”

Forty Game 7s have required overtime (40-of-166, 24.1%). Home and road teams each have 20 wins.

There is also a Happy Feet 2 version and it bumps, but it’s about penguins triumphing and I cannot put that in here. Google it later.
