Capitals Win Game 7 2-1 and Series Thanks to Vetty Feddy

It seems as though the Capitals need some sort of challenege to be successful.  Last season they had the challenge of even making the postseason and ended up going on one of the best winning streaks to make the playoffs the NHL has ever seen.  This year they made the playoffs with ease and stumbled to the Rangers 3-1 in the series–yet another challenge.  The Caps were able to force a game 7 and wouldn’t you know–here’s another challenge.

The 1st period did not look good for this Caps team.  The first shift saw a streaking Sean Avery almost slide one by Simeon Varlamov, and Nik Antropov got a clear-cut breakaway that was also stopped by the rookie goaltender.  Brandon Dubinsky was left alone in front while Varly made a nice pokecheck that happened to land on Antropov’s stick for the first goal of the game just over five minutes in.  The Caps were down 1-0 in Game 7 in a series in which they should have creamed the Rangers–alas another challenge.

The Anaheim Ducks surprised the hockey world last night after knocking off the first seed–and biggest choke artists of the 2009 Playoffs–San Jose Sharks.  Joe Thornton and Ryan Getzlaf had a tussle right off the faceoff after a Ducks goal as Big Joe tried to give his team a little boost to stay alive in the series. 

According to hockeyfights.com 80% of viewers believed Thornton won the fight.  There could have been a couple other fights that might of ensued if not for the “1 fight at a time rule”.

Caps Force Game 7 With 5-3 Win

The score of 5-3 doesn’t really tell the whole story as the Caps dominated Game 6 to keep the series and the season alive.  The Caps’ defense played a part in every goal scored, including scoring the first three goals of the game, and Tom Poti walked away with four points (1g, 3a).

Simeon Varlamov got his 3rd win of the playoffs in a hard hitting affair last night at MSG.  Blair Betts, a critical penalty killer and overall player for the Rangers, left the game half way through the first period after taking a late hit from Donald Brashear.  More on that later from Parks…
