It ain’t over yet. The Caps played a spirited Game Six and bested Andrei Vasilevskiy to tie the series 3-3. We’re going to #gaysev, y’all!
Thirty-five minutes and twenty shots into the game, TJ Oshie finally dented the net with a beautiful one-timer. Then, in the third, Chandler Stephenson chased down an icing and turned it unto a scoring chance for Devante Smith-Pelly. This being the playoffs; DSP didn’t waste the opportunity.
The Bolts pressed after that, but Oshie got the empty-netter. All that was left was the small matter of Braden Holtby earning a shutout.
Caps beat Bolts 3-0! The series is going to seven!

By the way I haven’t watched much hockey this playoffs, but this caps/bolts game has been real good

When people talk about playoff intensity, I think this is what they mean. Huge hits (Wilson and Oshie were relentless), desperate but determined play all over the ice, and two goalies putting on next-level performances.
Hey. It’s May 21, the Caps are still alive, and they’re playing wonderfully.
And it ain’t over yet. The Caps are one win away from the Cup Final. They’ll have to get that win on Wednesday in Tampa. I believe.
