After putting their fans through another hellacious period of overtime, the Capitals head to Columbus with a chance to close out another first round series.
It’s an elimination game so everyone wear your lucky socks and pray to the hockey gods that the bounces fall the Caps way. Puck drop is at 7:30 PM on CNBC and NBCSWA. Peter will once again have your recap.
The final regular season stats:
|Shot Attempt %||51.7%||48.3%|

Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Stephenson – Backstrom – Oshie
Connolly – Eller – DSP
Vrana – Beagle -Chiasson

Kempny – Carlson
Orpik – Djoos
