Ten games into the Capitals' 2011-12 playoff run and emotionally and physically exhausted after the Caps' triple-overtime loss in Game 3, it's time for a little mindless eye-candy - the Top-10 Caps GIFs from the playoffs so far. These aren't necessarily the top plays, just some great moments captured for posterity in GIF form (feel free to tell us where we're wrong and add your own in the comments and we'll be sure to make amends after another ten games have passed).
All of these are the result of Dimagus's amazing and tireless efforts unless otherwise noted, so a huge stick tap to him... and away we go, after the jump.
