FreeStatePlus: Nicklas Backstrom’s Goal in Double Overtime lifts Capitals past Bruins: Caps bounce back
The best way to describe the Washington Capitals 2012 season is. Imagine living on a Roller Coaster thats always moving or living on a Title Wave. They never found their number one goalie, someone they can count on. Every night, that they knew would lead them in the NHL Playoffs. They may have found that guy only giving up two goals in less them seven periods. So far against the Boston Bruins in their Quarterfinal Series. They’ve been beat up for most of this season, Alex Ovechkin has an off year and as a result their. Offense was up and down and has struggled a lot the last two months. They just barely make the Playoffs, grabbing the 8th Seed coming down to the last few games. And find themselves playing the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins. In the first round but as they say once the Playoffs start. A whole new season begins.
I’m not saying these things to beat up on the Capitals, I’ve been a Die Hard Caps fan since 1984 or 85, when I started watching hockey. I’m a lifelong Washingtonian but this is a team that was predicted to win. The Eastern Conference and at least get to the Stanley Cup Finals. They are that good and talented on paper. And may still do but they were basically a 500 team in the Regular Season. And we’ll see if they are any better then that in the Playoffs.
