Hello fellow hockey fans and readers of Musings of a Caps Fan, I realize that there has been a drought of posts recently. Well…. I’m taking a step or two back considering that the Capitals have been eliminated. Once we get closer to the draft and the awards, I will hopefully find more Capitals-related stuff to write about…. but, for now, I am taking a short break. However, the Musings of a Caps Fan Twitter page, Musings_Tweets (LINK) is in full force will commentary from me. Follow or subscribe to the RSS if you wish!

(Photo by Richard Wolowicz / Getty Images) Yes! The Montreal Canadiens, who vanquished the Washington Capitals in 7 games in the first round, are on the brink of doing it again. The Montreal Canadiens, with a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, are going to be playing another Game 7, this time in Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, with a trip to the Eastern Conference finals at stake. Honestly, I will say that this success by the Habs lessens the questions that the Capitals went without a fight; the Montreal Canadiens really are this good. Or at least Jaroslav Halak is. By the way, Alexander Ovechkin’s 10 points (5 goals, 5 assists) against the Canadiens in 7 games look a whole lot better than Sidney Crosby’s 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists) against the Canadiens through 6 games. In fact, Crosby had a 7-game goal scoring drought that he snapped Tuesday night…..



So, follow Musings of a Caps Fan on Twitter, and the posts will be back…. sooner or later!
