Heartache Tonight: Flyers Top Caps in OT

Robert McGeeSenior Writer IApril 22, 2008

My condolences to Washington Capitals fans. That had to sting, losing in overtime of a game seven at home. But the Caps had a great second half of the season and it must have been enjoyable to watch the fever take hold of the Capital City.

It will be interesting to see what kind of team George McPhee puts on that horrid ice surface next year. Will Huet or Fedorov be back? Will Kolzig retire? Regardless, most of the young players will be back and my guess is that the Capitals will be the Hurricanes toughest competition in the division next season.

This sets up a couple of interesting matchups in the Eastern conference semi-finals. In one series it’s Marc Staal versus Jordan Staal as the Rangers take on the Penguins. Who will Eric be rooting for?

How long will it take Sean Avery to try to goon it up with Sidney Crosby, and how long before Georges Laraque gets involved? The thing about the Pens though is that they have several tough guys to go at Avery. I don’t think that Sean will get away with as much as he did against the Devils.

Montreal will face the Flyers. Will the Hab Nation burn down the entire city if they win this round?
