We expect a fired-up Rangers team, and a loud and proud crowd at Madison Square Garden tonight.
Blue is their color of choice and I am always proud to see so many people from DC or NYC wearing red to show their true colors in the crowd. Thank you for the support; I love meeting our fans on the concourse of MSG. I too wear red at the road games.
I believe we need to tune out all noise and just focus on signal. Play shift-by-shift, roll all four lines, out-work the Rangers and crowd the crease. Adhering to Coach Oates system is paramount for us as it helps the Caps to dictate the pace and style of play.
Sorry for the trite analysis and short blog posts, but the playoffs are all about focus and not feeding the monster. Watch tonight at 7:30pm. Go Caps!
