It's Game 7 time in Washington Wednesday night. Can the Capitals advance?
Forget their past woes in Game 7. In the first round, the winners have been seeds 1,2,3 and 5 (West) and 4, 6, and 7 (East). As an 8th seed, the Canadiens can make the pattern complete.
The Capitals don't want to end up like division winners New Jersey and Buffalo, playing golf now, do they?
