Big Story: The defending Stanley Cup-champion Bruins will try to win a Game 7 for the fourth time in five series, while the Capitals will try to win one on the road after having four at home in the previous four seasons.
Capitals: Washington missed a great chance to finish off Boston in Game 6 on Sunday afternoon. The Capitals have spent much of this series defending and trying to hold off the Bruins, but Washington carried the play for longer stretches in Game 6. Turnovers were a problem and led to the final two Boston goals, but the Capitals’ defense also had trouble handling the speed of Tyler Seguin and David Krejci.
Nicklas Backstrom made a great pass to Jason Chimera for a goal, but also didn’t hustle back on Boston’s third goal and his turnover led to the game-winner in overtime. Three of Washington’s defensemen were victimized by Seguin, though only one led to a goal.
