Caps win 7-2, Ovy with 2 g, 2a, Backstrom with 1g, 4a.....
Wait....I might be stuck in 2009.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
Hard to get excited about this one. My predictions:
- Konopka beats up a Cap.
- Brads jumps Konopka from the stands. Then bleeds on him.
- Fehr breaks his other collarbone via Twitter.
- Steckel scores hat trick and accidentally pummels the Zamboni guy.
I'm changing my prediction. 4-2 Capitals with an ENG by.... Holtby.
Seriously though, Holtby should be fine. I predict one or two gaffes (might not lead to goals), but a solid game otherwise and some sweek puckhandling.
Worst case scenario is that Steckel injures Holtby.
In a huge twist, Steckel will find a way to blindside hit himself in the head, knocking him out for the season. He will receive universal praise for taking out one of the game's dirtiest cheapshot artists.
