Tonight is the night. Yes, Nicklas Backstrom will be playing in his 1000th game, so he is the proverbial “belle of the ball” but something else is also occurring. We are done with the Sabres. This is the final one and it would’ve been cool if the Caps were going for the series sweep, but due to the pesky shootout loss in February…we will have to settle for a potential seven wins out of eight. Hard life.
Puck will be dropping at 7 PM and Christopher will have your recap, supplemented by some witty tweets.
