Game 7: win or go home.
Capitals 5 Rangers 3
The Rangers were without head coach John Torterella, (suspended one game for throwing a water bottle at a Washington fan) and Blair Betts (knocked senseless by Donald Brashear's elbow to the jaw). Henrik Lundqvist was pulled after 2 periods for the 2nd straight game (although he made MANY fantastic saves).
The boys have been stymied for the most part by an aggressive Capitals' attack, and especially by rookie goaltender Simeon Varlamov.
Any good news? Brashear has been suspended for 5 games for that vicious (and unpenalized!) hit on Betts. Oh by the way, Betts will miss game 7.
The series is tied 3-3. All of the New York wins have been squeakers, and all of the losses have been near blowouts.
It all comes down to a game 7 in Washington tonight...
Let's Go Ranguhs!!
