Back in D.C. for Game Five and another chance to book a ticket to the 2nd round, where the Caps would likely meet up with the Pittsburgh Penguins in a series that shouldn’t have happened until the Conference Finals, but the NHL has a stupid playoff set up. As you can tell, I am annoyed by this. However, the Caps cannot be like me and overlook Philadelphia tonight as we know the Caps tend to struggle when they’re up 3-1 in a series.
Michal Neuvirth is back in the cage for the Flyers, Brooks Orpik is still out and the French dude that boarded Orlov is back for Scott Laughton who did not travel with the team after this scary collision with the boards.
