    Here's a silly question you guys can tear up: When Stamkos hit Miller high with an elbow...why didn't he receive a penalty?

    I really hope this has not been Caps's last home game of the season. If it has been...well they played a heck of a game. They truly dominated. And Ovechkin was a one-man wrecking ball.

    Should be a great game 7 tonight. No matter who you like in the NHL, we are all fans of hockey. And nothing is better than a game 7. But add on that it’s a game 7 to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.....BOOM!!! Nothing better. #Let’s Go Caps #Rock the RED

    As a former DC area guy (even saw a couple of Capitals 1974 games) I'd love to see a Vegas-Caps series. I lived in Chicago for a long time, and the Capitals angst of the past 20 years borders on the Cubs World Series drought, though the Cubs were an awful team when I lived there. Maybe the Nationals can actually win a playoff series this year, and kill these DC team curses :)

  • Jonathan Jensen

    Ovechkin a selfish perrenial 50 goal scorer with half that amount of helpers does not deserve a Cup as he plays no defense. There may be Hockey Gods and Defense usually wins series. Remember Ovechkins Lack of effort on Hornquists goal last year in the last game of series.. One trick pony and overrated. I have more emotion for Gallant and the VGK winning than this guy.

    Lightning have the advantage for game 7. They experienced a loss where they didn't look great, so they can now come back stronger, they are at home, and they can only build off of this.

    Captials did what they had to do in this game, came out FASTER, STRONGER, AND HUNGRIER. They literally took the LIGHTINGS lunch money and gut punch them all night. Hopefully the LIGHTING can answer in game 7. This has been a hell of a series. Hoping game 7 lives up to the hype. GO BOLTS!!!!!!!!!!

      It was too close of a call to call that icing using the hybrid definition. It's only supposed to be used in unambiguous cases.

      Deceived Society 10 months ago

      PhillySports7262 ' what?.. Lol you don't know what you're saying. Touching the puck on an icing call doesn't exist anymore. It's called hybrid icing now
      .. Which ever player has a better chance of touching it. Hybrid has everything to do with it. U should look at the refs hand signals... He called it off just at the line. And the commentator saying Stevenson negates the icing call so it was an icing call but that Tampa got juked from

      Pat Stevens Yeah, it is no different for Tampa to finish them off. From what I've seen, Washington has been the much better team in this series. They shouldn't even have had to go to 7 being up 2-0 heading home. Game 7 will be a good one though
