Only one game on the ticket tonight.
#7 Washington Capitals vs. #2 Boston Bruins, Game 7, NBC Sports and CBC at 7:30 Eastern
In a playoffs that has been about goaltending, be it excellent or poor, this series is gonna have to be decided by something else because Braden Holtby and Tim Thomas have both been up to the task for their teams. Well, mostly. Timmy Whoppers has let in a few softer goals here and there to account for the excess in shots Holtby has faced. Recently the likely best player on the ice has been Bruins' forward Tyler "Thank You Kessel" Seguin, who finally got on the scoresheet with an assist and the OT winner in Game 6, and the battles between Alex Ovechkin and Zdeno Chara have been monstrous. You shouldn't need to be convinced to watch this one though, it's a Game 7 baby! If you aren't interested in Game 7 of this series you might not like hockey. Just sayin.
I personally am cheering for a Matt Hendricks OT game winner. What are you hope for? If it's the tale of the tape you're in luck:
|Apr 22, 2012||BOS @ WSH||BOS, 4 - 3|
|Apr 21, 2012||WSH @ BOS||WSH, 4 - 3|
|Apr 19, 2012||BOS @ WSH||WSH, 2 - 1|
|Apr 16, 2012||BOS @ WSH||BOS, 4 - 3|
|Apr 14, 2012||WSH @ BOS||WSH, 2 - 1|
|Apr 12, 2012||WSH @ BOS||BOS, 1 - 0|
Both sides seriously average 2 1/3 goals per game in this series? Hah.
Go forth and find me some Marchand diving gifs to laugh at during intermissions, won't you?
