The Washington Capitals’ season will be on the brink Wednesday night. Win Game Seven and the Caps advance to the second round for the fifth consecutive year. Lose and go home; the Caps’ quest to go back-to-back will end two months prematurely. We’ll all be heartbroken.
Undoubtedly, Caps fans, you guys, are going to bring the noise and be a force to be reckoned with throughout the game. You’re going to give the players energy to help them make that one extra play. Capital One Arena is going to be shaking.
But before all that anxiety-ridden, uh, fun happens, we should give the players a little extra motivation during warmups and honor two banged up hockey warriors for their sacrifice. Let’s celebrate the two Caps that were injured down the stretch and cannot play tonight.
Let’s win Game Seven for TJ Oshie and Michal Kempny. Let’s do it for Osh. Let’s do it for Kemps.
