BOSTON, MA – The Washington Capitals kept their Stanley Cup dreams alive Wednesday night as they defeated the defending Stanley Cup Champions to advance to the second round of the NHL Playoffs.
In a decisive Game 7, the Caps managed to punch their ticket into the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals with a 2-1 overtime victory. The series is the first in NHL history to feature all seven games decided by one goal, four of which were won in overtime.
“Well just to win and move on is, I don’t know. It’s awesome,” said Washington forward Brooks Laich. “Just complete elation. We’re very excited.”
BOSTON, MA – It’s under an hour until faceoff for Game 7 against the Washington Capitals and soon “Let’s Go Bruins” chants will be reverberating off the rafters at TD Garden.
Tonight, it’s expected that the 17, 565 fans at TD will be louder than they’ve been all season and the Bruins wouldn’t want it any other way.
“It’ll be crazy,” Bruins forward Brad Marchand said. “We always have a great atmosphere with our fans and it’s always so loud it hurts your eardrums. So it’ll definitely be fun in there.”
