Yeah, this one is up there. But somehow, compared with the Game 7 against the Rangers, I'll be much happier after a win, but a lot less disappointed with a loss. I guess because to lose in Round 1 Game 7 on home ice second year in a row could be absolutely devastating to team morale... whatever happens today, this season will have been a step forward.
Having said that, to beat the hated Pens in Game 7, in front of the red army in Verizon, to erase the history of vassalage, to send Crosby back to the basement, to get to within one step of the Stanley Cup finals -- Caps' fans would become the best candidates to send on a two-year solitary mission to Mars -- all they'd need to feel warm and fuzzy would be a dvd of these 7 games.
