They were clearly the better team last night and they deservedly move on to the next round of the playoffs.
We exit Round 1 in seven games, after having a 2-0 series lead. The loss is quite painful to everyone associated with our franchise. I personally feel like I have let the community down with this Game 7 loss .
I also feel terrible in how we let down our great fan base, and I am very appreciative of all of your support, even when we were down 5-0. Thank you so much; you really are the best fans in the NHL.
When you are eliminated in the playoffs, the emotions are raw and the thinking isn't that clear. So I believe it best that we let some time pass before we comment on the season and the series, and our eventual go-forward plan.
Thank you for the support, congratulations to the Rangers. Go Caps!
