The sound and fury of Caps fans during Game 5 at Verizon Center.
The Capitals won Game 5 in convincing fashion to force a Game 6 back at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
Game 6 goes Sunday afternoon, and I bet NBC will be happy with their ratings for that one. Here's hoping the Caps can setup a beauty of a Game 7.
I'm not terribly into the Caps-Rangers series. It's been pretty boring hockey; Washington controls the puck on the perimeter for around sixty minutes and no one on that team dares head to the front...
