John Walton called the Game Six crowd the loudest he’s ever heard at Capital One Arena. Pierre McGuire agreed.
Riding a Braden Holtby shutout, the Washington Capitals defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-0 in Game Six to force a decisive Game Seven in the Eastern Conference Final.
While the Capitals played a mostly flawless game (focus on the fourth line’s goal and not their corsi), the Capital One Arena crowd was the loudest its been all season long, giving the team energy and pushing them forward.
In fact, Capitals radio’s John Walton thought it was loudest Caps fans have ever been in his presence.
