The Rangers and Capitals are playing big boy hockey.
After another game going down to the wire, the Capitals come out with a win this afternoon in Game 4. Now it’s a three game series. Both teams play a tight checking game with limited scoring. This Game 5 is likely to be as tightly contested a game as either team has played this season. It might go seven games.
The Stanley Cup Playoffs are The Bomb. Unless you’re a total buffoon or kiss ass, they are the best playoffs in sport. The SCP have made me barf, and it’s the only sport that’s made me barf in-game. That little event was with the Capitals and Flyers exchanged breakaways in Game 7 OT, with Mike Gartner hitting a post and Brian Propp firing into the goaltender. That was in 1988. The replay is still tough to watch.
