Who is ready for some Game Two action? I may be alone in feeling this, but didn’t Game One feel like it was such a blur? The Caps were able to pull out a 4-3 OT victory on the backs of TJ Oshie and Braden Holtby, after seemingly falling asleep in the 2nd and 3rd periods. Let’s hope for a “60 minute effort” and another big ole W tonight.
The Caps have played the Penguins in 8 playoff series before this one. The Caps have a record of 7-1 in the first game of those series, however the Pens have won 7 out of those 8 series. Statistics show that when you win Game One, you should have around a 68 percent chance at winning the series. Let’s change history and align with statistics, because numbers are cool and fun.
We might have a shakeup in the D-corps tonight. Round Two, Game Two liveblog below.
