This is a totally different Caps team than we have seen in the past. I made this video to show their heart throughout the playoffs. I, for once, BELIEVE the Caps can win. I remember the days when I felt, and almost everyone felt, the Caps never had a chance in an important game; not anymore. Let's Go Caps!

With an important game 6 and 7 approaching, I felt the need to put together a quick highlight mix of this series. The unleash the fury portion at the beginning isn't the best quality, but I was putting this together while I should have been studying for my finals. By the way, the song is "Moscow Never Sleeps," which is what my roommates and I play for any Russian goal scored. Also, the "Play Like A Goon," sign is what hangs above our front door. We slap it before leaving the house each morning. Hope this gets everyone ready for whats ahead. LETS GO CAPS! (Special thanks to Dima for the .gifs that were used.)

“It's one of my biggest pet peeves when goalies stare at a guy or throw his arms up in the air. It's almost like they think we're doing it on purpose, you know? Everybody knows who's fault it is. If it's my fault, in know it and if it's his fault he knows it. I'm not going to go and if a goal gets scored, I'm not going to go stare right at him or throw my arms up at him. I think it's more of a respect thing. If he doesn't do it, we don't do it.” - Karl Alzner, praising Braden Holtby and perhaps referencing someone else (see above)

Here's a good example of how media drives the narrative on borderline hits. Here, the puck was gone, the hitter had his hands up high and the recipient was unsuspecting. And yet, NBC didn't replay it, their talking heads didn't say anything about it, and it was immediately forgotten... unlike another hit from the same game. For the record, this doesn't look like a suspendable hit to me. But the media treatment of it is a pretty striking contrast to that other one.
