The metro was the toughest division , it's showing! For now Holtby is making the saves.

The caps are a team of destiny now. They were 0-2 vs Columbus and CBJ hit the post in OT during game 3. Then the caps got a bizarre goal to win that game and then they won 4 straight. And just kept on going killing the Pittsburgh ghost - they are just on fire, there is no stopping them now. They have that insane hunger like the Pens had in 2016.

The Caps are on fire is right. Can't seem to do anything wrong. The converse of true of the Bolts.

Strange game, this professional hockey thingy. There is momentum within a game and there is momentum within a series. The Caps sucked the life right out of Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay is not this bad.

We all have seen Vasilevsky melt down after allowing a bad or untimely goal. But this thrashing is the last thing I expected. I honestly felt, with all bias and hatred aside, that Tampa would dispose of the Caps in short order. Wow.

Somewhere a DC Cap fan is saying who needs Nick Backstrom. 8-) They've been great without him.

Last week I found this article~ past caps speak out about them moving on.

FMR cap goalie Jim Carey- he might be in a quiet place. :P

I guess as a human being, the Caps do deserve some playoffs success, but man as a Pens fan who lives here in DC, it is unbearable. They are up 2-0 on the Bolts and they still are talking about them beating the Pens and excorcising their demons and now they will never have that mental block again......

I think Jets have all the elements (speed, physicality, discipline, large and in charge GK, & Big Buff) to win the Cup. And I love the gutsiness of how they immediately try for an EN goal whenever they gain possession - no matter where the puck is on the ice.

You just know if they win this series and/ or the cup, the first game for the Pens next year will be on NBCsports in Washington for a long drawn out banner raising.

The pens can bring their bling to work. Guys with 2-3 rings can wear and add to the sparkles. :D 8-)
No, my hope is for the caps is to lose at that highest level. Have some other team celebrating with the cup on their home ice.

I wouldn't mind seeing them blow a 2-0 or even a 3-0 lead to the Bolts. That would be awesome.

I know a loaded question when I see one.

What happened to Stamkos?

Hit got hit in the knee by friendly fire. Limped off like he was really hurt but came back into the game.

Fleury or no Fleury I find it increasingly difficult to root for Vegas with each pregame "show."

Yeah, that was...something. I guess I’m impressed by the dedication to being completely over the top.

There are just no words to describe Marc-Andre Fleury. Before he even took his pads off after game 3 of the Western Conference Final he spent time with the two sons of the Humboldt Broncos coach Darcy Haugan. They don’t make too many like him.

This, making all the saves, and tickling Wheeler's ear while watching a fight~ the Fleury HT. :D

Orlov is another cap who is having a breakout play off. Last year he scored one for the pens.
I am conflicted with this series. I know the caps like I know the pens.
I also don't care for the genius tag the put on Yzerman. I still miss the high octane action.

Tampa has looked better the last two games. I have always liked Orlov as well.
