NBC hockey analyst Pierre McGuire is not going to hedge bets on who will win Game 7 between the Capitals and Boston Bruins Wednesday night at TD Garden, but he will say this:
At 6 feet 4, 220 pounds, Capitals defenseman John Erskine is two inches shorter and 10 pounds lighter than teammate Jeff Schultz.
It looks like a one-game punishment for Nicklas Backstrom will turn into a one-game opportunity for Mathieu Perreault and Mike Knuble.
The last time Mike Green scored a goal gas prices were well under 4.00 and Bruce Boudreau was still employed as head coach of the Washington Capitals.
BOSTON Braden Holtby refused to break.
Not when Brad Marchand gave him a bayonet to the rib cage after a save in the first period.
