I'm a sucker for lists. So as 2011 comes to a close, I've been thinking about my favorite Caps games of the year.
The comeback-and-double-OT playoff win against the Rangers is a given.
The Winter Classic is also a given to me. It wasn't the best hockey played, but there's more to games than that, especially when it comes to the Winter Classic.
But after those two, it's wide open. What are your favorites of the year?
There's the back-and-forth 7-6 win over Anaheim last season. The "Ovi not on the ice" OT win over Anaheim last season. The home opener 6-5 SO win over Tampa this season. The list goes on. What about blowouts? Does the 7-1 win over Detroit count as a "good game"?
