Game 7: Washington Capitals vs. Montreal Canadiens Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Capitals vs.Canadiens Game 7 Live Stream: The Montreal Canadiens and the Washington Capitals will meet tonight in the deciding game of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter-final series at the Verizon center.
Honestly, I didn’t expect this series to go the limit because after four matches, I thought the Caps would progress into the next round. But the Habs forced a Game 7, thanks to the magnificent goaltending of Jaroslav Halak, who stopped a combined 90 of 92 shots over the last two fixtures, including an astounding 53 of 54 in their 4-1 victory on Monday night.
Washington can really use Alex Ovechkin‘s experience in this match because every playoff series of the Russian’s NHL career has come down to a Game 7. Unfortunately, if the Caps fail to advance to the semifinals, Ovechkin’s reputation will take a major hit.
The game starts at 7:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Halak made 41 saves as Montreal defeated Washington 2-1 Wednesday night to win the best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinals four games to three. The Habs are the first eight seed to come back from a 3-1 deficit and beat a No. 1 seed since the league went to its current playoff format in 1994.
