    Just can't bet on the Caps in a game 7.

    This team might be different but until I see otherwise I believe this one is going to play out similar to game 5. They'll come out fired up but somehow manage to get scored on early, Vasilevskiy stands on his head and they get frustrated and spend too much time passing looking for the perfect opportunity. They get 1, maybe 2, but by then it's too late.

    Bolts 4, Caps 2.

    Sure would be a disappointment to lose this series from the Caps’ perspective after stealing the first two on the road though.

    But Tampa is good. I’m not stunned by this. However, they bring forth that trash effort Monday night into tonight and it’s bye-bye.

    Still just feels like Ovi’s year to me. 3-1 Caps tonight I say.

    caps overall are a much bigger then boston, play just as fast as tampa and play way more aggressive if you think tampa can match washingtons size and strength your in for a bad night. i love my caps i hope they go out and play the way they been all series with out dumb penalties.

    Neither team has choked here. Just a narrative thrown around way to often in sports today because of over coverage and nothing to talk about. Both teams finished in top of the conference. Losing doesnt make you a choker. Every game is different and random. No series lead except 3 0 is a death sentence or guarantee.

    Tampa can win this, but they need to show up and play for 60 minutes. If they can't do that in a game 7, they don't deserve the Cup anyway.

    No choking is when you rightfully have super high expectations and get bounced in round 1 or 2.

    Well, there is nothing we can do, so no need to be nervous. Hockey gods already decided who's winner.
