What in the hell is going on? Everything in Game Seven is coming up… #ALLCAPS.
7:42 after scoring his first goal of the postseason, Andre Burakovsky scored again. He is having the biggest game of his life in one of the Capitals biggest games in its franchise’s history.

Burakovsky’s goal was scored once again on a breakaway. The Swedish forward beat Andrei Vasilevskiy five hole.
The play was all made possible by John Carlson who threw a perfect pass of the boards to Burakovsky hanging at the blue line.
Alex Ovechkin was pumped on the bench.
Burakovsky’s huge night comes in amidst one of the worst stretches of his career. Monday morning, Burakovsky, who had no playoff points at the time, spoke to the press about how he was way too hard on himself and focused too much on negativity. Burakovsky said he was hiring a sports psychologist and would try to work through his problems in the coming months.
The quotes were refreshingly honest and vulnerable for a player of his stature. Game Seven was a reminder of just how much a game-changer Burra can be when he’s playing his best.
3-0 Caps. One more period to go.
