It's Almost That Time

Think you're anxious? What about the 12 Capitals who will be making their NHL playoff debut tonight? That's right, there's a dozen of them, and that's not counting Coach Bruce Boudreau.

"To me, we've been in the playoffs for a month and a half," Boudreau said moments ago, shrugging off the suggestion that inexperience could play a role in the series. "This is just an extension of it. It's an exciting extension."

"I'm really excited for the guys that they got where they got," he added. "But our goal was always to go further, not just to make the playoffs. We haven't achieved what we want. Until we do, we'll just stay the course."

In case you're just joining us, check out the Caps' lineup for Game 1 against the Flyers here. Also, I'm hearing the Flyers are going to have defensemen Jason Smith (shoulder) and Randy Jones (flu) and center Danny Briere (knee) in the lineup.

hey dave, what kind of link did he give you? If its TVU, you need TVU player, which you can download. SopCast, I'm not sure about, but I think its a VLC media player.

Scott, my dad has his TV on VS and it was showing tennis up until a few minutes ago. It may be time-lagged.

Mauree, Czechsmix, thanks for the link but I'm getting tennis too.

Will the game be on after this match?

Come on Caps - lets get a second!!

Posted by: Dave UK Caps Fan | April 11, 2008 7:18 PM | Report abuse

Yeah I think we're all getting tennis...this match would be great if it wasn't interfering with the biggest game in 10 years

Posted by: Scott | April 11, 2008 7:19 PM | Report abuse

Dave, NHL.com should have a feed. I think they were showing playoff games...

Posted by: jmu_capsgirl | April 11, 2008 7:20 PM | Report abuse

Yes, game will be on after tennis

Ok thanks guys, why the hell did Blake have to win that last game.

Crap! 1-1 now.

By the way, there is nothing illegal about this link is there??

Posted by: Dave UK Caps Fan | April 11, 2008 7:24 PM | Report abuse

Got to clear the front of that net!

I think I'm wrong. There's a Capitals ISOCam, but it doesn't start until Sunday. Sorry! Its under their new Hockey Show thing.

Posted by: jmu_capsgirl | April 11, 2008 7:26 PM | Report abuse

Thanks for checking JMU!

Blake is two points from winning so GO USA!!!

Someone who is actually getting to watch - Are we having a lot of shots blocked? it seems so based on the NHL live feed

Posted by: Scott | April 11, 2008 7:30 PM | Report abuse

Philly PP.

Evenly played

Posted by: CT Caps Fan | April 11, 2008 7:31 PM | Report abuse

ok tennis is over - why not hockey??

Again, there is nothing illegal about this link is there?

Posted by: Dave UK Caps Fan | April 11, 2008 7:32 PM | Report abuse

No it's not illegal. It's a mirror site on the internet. I watched college BBall on it all winter

Scott, et al,
Did you try listening to Kolbe's feed on 3TW? At least until the tennis is over?

Posted by: jmu_capsgirl | April 11, 2008 7:34 PM | Report abuse

I'm at work (west coast) and no audio on computer

Well, weren't not doing anything blatantly dumb, that's a good sign.

Those checks are things of beauty...
Fairly solid first period. Although solid doesn't win Cups. Let's go Caps!!!

Posted by: jmu_capsgirl | April 11, 2008 7:44 PM | Report abuse

Just curious, is Versus blacked out in the DC area?

Posted by: DeadKings08 | April 11, 2008 7:45 PM | Report abuse

I've got Versus, but I'm just outside of "the DC area" according to Comcast.

Posted by: jmu_capsgirl | April 11, 2008 7:48 PM | Report abuse

anybody else finding Comcast HD a bit "choppy"? reg comcast is fine. of all times!!

New thread!

@deadkings08

I'm in central PA and Versus is blacked out, but I have the game on both Comcast DC and Comcast Philly. But of course I'm watching Joe and Locker. Can't stand the Philly announcers.

Posted by: Tess | April 11, 2008 7:57 PM | Report abuse

My Comcast HD is crystal clear (at the risk of sounding like a Comcast commercial.) Anyway, I see that Versus is blacked out in the local market. I feel bad for a friend of mine that has RCN...he's been talking about the game all week.

Posted by: DeadKings08 | April 11, 2008 7:59 PM | Report abuse

Way to go Tess!

Let's go Caps!!!!

Bust it wide open in the 2nd!
