  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
  • Series notes from the Caps' end of the ice:
    • Confident goalies have confidence, and few things are as confidence-building as a 1-0 OT playoff victory... [WaPo, WashTimes, TSN]
    • ... or as soul-crushing to a team that has been held scoreless for the last 111:16 of playoff hockey. [Newsday, LoHud.com, THW, WFAN]
    • From worst to first and beyond is a story that never gets old. [FanSided]
    • A reminder that 2-0 is the most dangerous lead in hockey. [WaPo]
    • A change of fortune for a few players. [CSNW]
    • "Let it go." [CSNW]
    • The Caps' goal deficits were huge in the first part of the season, but are damn near microscopic lately. [Dump 'n' Chase]
  • Notes from the Rangers' end of the ice:
  • Up in Hershey, the Bears and the Bourques had a barnburner of an overtime game that ended with the good guys on the wrong side of the scoresheet ... so it's back to the Dunkin' Donut Center for the decisive Game 5 ... [Patriot-News (and again), SHoE]
    • But looky there, Tom Wilson got his first pro goal. Way to go, Ten Train! [Ben Raby (audio)]
  • And over in Reading, the Royals are now halfway to the Eastern Conference crown after defeating the Cincy Cyclones 3-2 in overtime. [Reading Eagle]
  • Congrats are in order for former Cap Bates Battaglia and his brother Anthony, who captured first place and a $1m prize on CBS' The Amazing Race. [Georgetown Patch, NHL.com, CBS.com (cast bios)]
  • Time to game-day-give to charity via JP's beard to keep the hockey gods happy. [Beard-A-Thon]
  • Finally, happy 63rd birthday to Bob Gryp.
