I told my bartender this had the feeling of a one goal game. Hope I’m wrong and we come out with our hair on fire in the third.

I’ve consulted the hockey gods, we’ve got a 50/50 chance of advancing.

Than you definitely were NOT at my bar.

The game (as usual) was on behind me. I usually take my cues, when the guests start cheering or booing. That's when I'll stop what I'm doing and turn around and look.

Tonight? I got NOTHING. A lot of people staring blankly at the screen. At one point, in the 2nd period, I asked a couple: "Have the Bolts even come close to scoring?" The dude says, "Nah...not really".

Only saw bits and pieces and I'm not watching the replay. It really doesn't matter.

Game 7. At home. Just as I felt the Caps would win this game, the Bolts should win game 7. EVERY, non-game related intangible favors the Lightning in this game.

That said, WAS is clearly playing better hockey right now.


The better team will win game 7. No excuses. I want to believe that we have the better team. I just don't like the fact that WAS is playing better than we are.


We all could be severely disappointed by the outcome of this next game.

Caps thoroughly dominated tonight. Bolts seemed content on knowing they had a game 7 waiting for them. Kuch needs to step up.

Coops comments after the game were interesting.

This team is frustrating to watch. They seem to go on cruise control until somebody pushes back. When they are FORCED to play well, they do.

I feel like THEY feel, they've got this. No worries.

I wish I felt the same.

My guts are already churning and it's still a day away. I think I'm gonna start drinking now.

Pacing myself.

I need to make sure I pass out right before puck drop.

The ultimate nightmare is waking up just BEFORE the game starts.

I've been doing this a long time, grasshopper. I know what I'm doing...

Gotta say...pretty even first.

As Bradley said yesterday...will over skill in a game 7.

Even though the period seemed pretty even, the Caps look like they're playing desperate. The Bolts...not so much.

At least we're shooting the puck. We need one to go in. The Bolts seems like they're gripping a little. We need a gimme.

The Bolts are in real trouble.

Bad 2 games for the offense to disappear.

Holtby picked the perfect time to get hot.

It happens.

If you woulda told me we had 20 SoG and didn't score one, I thought you'd be high.

Good morning. Good afternoon and good night.

The better more deserved team is winning this game.

Congrats to the Caps. They've earned it.

We'll be back next year.

WAS will go into their 1-3-1 and shut down the 3rd.

Good night. See y'all in September. Thanks to all (except G-string...who will be here shortly), for contributing to this thread.

Despite tonight, the future is very bright for this team. We'll get there eventually.
