Capitals Rally in Second

I've got to be brief. So here it is: When Briere made it 2-0 early on, who thought the Caps would be tied entering the third? Be honest.

I was guilty of not believing. Shame on me!

It was looking bad for a while there. Caps still need to step it up in the 3rd to have a chance!

I am continually amazed by the resiliency of this team. PLEASE keep up the cycling...the Flyers can't deal with it. And stay outta the box!

Love the Flyers fans booing...it's music to my ears!

i believed tarik!! ok, sort of. i hope no flyer fans want to talk about diving now. upshall has been doing the bobblehead routine all series. you could see morrison say "nice dive" in the box. i like them coming out 4 on 4 with new ice and well rested. looks like the wiz could use some caps comeback mojo too...

Game 7 baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You could feel the shift during game 4, the Flyers felt it too. The Caps discovered they could play playoff hockey (ref's sucked). We were the better team the last three games.

Part of my post following the Game 5 victory:

"I have my tickets for Game 7. Can't wait for this tilt. Monday night Alex will score his second and third playoff goals and lead the Caps to victory!

Go Caps!"

Great game boys. Do we get Pittsburgh or the Rangers if we advance?

You're right - they may be young and inexperienced, but they learn fast! They have definitely figured out how to play playoff hockey.

Alex just said (with a big smile) that it loves it when they boo him - HA!!! Guess the Flyers fans helped us tonight!! ;-)

Well the only thing worse than being a winner living in Philly is being a loser living in Philly! Did you hear those no class idiots BOOING?? After finishing last last year, they should have given that team a standing ovation. I will cheer for the Caps, no matter what tomorrow night and I expect all to do so with me. Win or lose this has been a great team! But I do think we win tomorrow, why would the Flyers even bother for that bunch of pricks? Like I said, if you lived in Philly you would be pissed about it too! My God I would rather cut my wrists!

Great comeback from two goals down. All four of the Caps' goals were terrific! Happy to see Ovie get his second playoff game winner and the insurance goal, too.

Those Flyers fans were wonderful! They wanted to spare their team the embarassment of seeing their fans watching the rest of their loss, so they left 9 minutes early.

Game 7!!
Yeah, baby!!

Wish I could've seen tonight's game on TV. I listened to the radio feed over the Internet while watching the Wizards. I would've much preferred to see the Caps because the Wizards aren't worth anyone's time or money at this point. You think Philly is a choke dog? Watch the Wizards. That's the true essence of choking.

But I can't wait for tomorrow night's game. Vs. is going to show that one on TV.

1> we will hear from a teary "the man" again.

2> These guys have figured out playoff hockey (and a lot faster than the team the winner of tomorrow's game will face).

3> Backs and Sasha are tearing it up and pulling pressure off Ovechtank.

4> Ovechtank is scoring now that he's only being double covered.

5> Youth is an advantage in back to back games 6 & 7.

6> THIS IS GONNA BE GOOD!

7> I'm putting some game 7 tickets in my wallet and going to bed...tomorrow's gonna be a long day.

By the way, I jumped up and smashed my living room chandelier when OV scored on the breakaway. Glass showered down all over my boss's pork chop (he was over watching the game). But it's all worth it.

Posted by: katzistan | April 21, 2008 10:14 PM | Report abuse

@Colin

I did feel it that way, but I didn't like the third period of the last game. So all of a sudden I was not sure. And then comes awesome goal by Backstrom. What a great player for years to come. He is as good as both Alexes (not ot mentions Green, this kid is superior). After that goal Fleyrs were cooked.

IF they bring this game intensity for tomorrow, Flyers will be smoked.

The future is bright!

Posted by: King Huet | April 21, 2008 10:14 PM | Report abuse

Sorry guys, I was so nervous tonight, I could not blog and watch. WHAT A GAME, at least from the mid point on.

I know we need to win another but any word on when tix for 2nd Round go on sale? If we win, we play the Pens and they infiltrate our building more than the Flyers fans.

As soon as I am able, I am buying them.

Caps sent me an e-mail on Saturday selling seats to Caps fans only. You needed a password to buy them (I am on the Caps mailing list). I hope they do that for the next round.

I don't want to get too overconfident, but boy has this team matured in the past few games. It is like watching a new star form in the galaxy. Beautiful and breathtaking.

I honestly was not impressed with the Flyers fans. Even at the beginning, it seemed relatively quiet. Was it just my TV? Did anyone else hear it differently?

Posted by: CT Caps Fan | April 21, 2008 10:15 PM | Report abuse

Seriously, I've followed this team the majority of my life and I've never been more proud to be a Capitals fan than I am tonight. To rally back from 2-0 down on the road in Philly to win a game going away and force a game 7 is just absolutely incredible to me. Unbelievable. That was just simply incredible, and lets just all hope for another win tomorrow night!

Wow, I have watched probably 80+ games this season, and this one _sounded_ like one of the best on the season.

Of course my cable company in Manhattan completely F'd me... they bungled the center ice feed so I had to listen to the game... but what an amazing come from behind victory. This team deserves to win tomorrow, but honestly, whatever happens I feel genuinely grateful for the season. So much excitement, so much heart, so much fun. There is no better team to watch.

Let's bring it to them tomorrow night an settle this thing for good. GO CAPS!!

(By the way, you had to just know Ovie was gonna break out... Philly may win tomorrow, but they've got to be kicking the sh*t out of themselves for not sewing this up earlier... you know, back when we didn't have the fire lit under us quite as much and when they thought they had "shut down" Ovie... which of course is utterly ridiculous given he was a force on the ice in every game in my opinion... just because he's not lighting the lamp... stupid commentary)

Yeah Baby!

"70% of teams who score first in game 6, win. The Caps are in the 30%," I said at the beginning of the game. I knew we would tie it when Backstrom scored the first goal. They were poised, collected, perfect. I just knew that they were going to score again, and Philly wouldn't. Then, when Richards leveled Ovechkin I turned to my friend and told him that Richards had made a huge mistake. You could hear the floodgates open after his first goal. When Fedorov kept the puck in the zone after trying to stickhandle it in I started cheering, i said "that guy made a mistake and then quickly corrected it," and then BOOM, we're going to 7!

5 believe. I truly, truly believe.
