Game Notes:

  • This isn't the first time the Bruins haven't played the Capitals until late in the season, but it's never actually been THIS late. The last time the Bruins played the Caps was April, a game in which the Capitals forced overtime and won. Gross. They're down Mikhail Grabovski to an ankle injury, so it'll be on Ovechkin and Mr. Zyrtec himself to get things done today.
