Another Caps ratings record

More notes as we wait for Game 7....

* The Game 6 broadcast on Comcast SportsNet earned a 5.6 average household rating in D.C., topping Game 7 against the Penguins for the most-watched Caps playoff broadcast in CSN history. Among men ages 25-54, the game scored a 7.1 average rating, 10 percent higher than for the Penguins Game 7. Five of the 10 most-watched Caps playoff games in CSN history have been in this series.

* NPR's All Things Considered did a segment on Eric Belanger's tooth demolition, and Gemma Hooley talked to the Caps' team dentist. Good times here:

"I said, you know, Eric, this is something we can handle; you know, it'll be all right. There were multiple lacerations, lots of teeth were damaged. But I said, we'll get you through it. In fact, we could probably do something to even get you back on the ice right now - which he was happy about."

* Canadiens sensation PK Subban has never been to D.C. before. "Maybe Obama will show up," he said, when asked about Game 7. Hahahahaha.

* Senators defenseman Anton Volchenkov doesn't seem too convinced by the Mike-Green-for-Norris talk.

"Green? He's like a fourth forward when he's out there for Washington," Volchenkov told Puck Daddy's Dmitry Chesnokov. "I don't see him playing that seriously defensively, but offensively he is of a lot of benefit."

* Also, in preparation for Game 7, you should probably watch CSN's Michael Jenkins harrassing Habs fans at Game 5.

"D.C.: Word of advice dont go to any Dallas Mavs websites Caron Butler is public enemy No. 1 there"

Oh what a terrible player that Caron Butler is, only scored 35 pts with just 11 rebounds tonight in a must win playoff game.

If the clueless fans in Dallas don't want Caron, we will gladly take him back.
