There Is Nothing In Sports Like Game 7

Washington Capitals v New York Rangers - Game Six

The word and the number together are special.  Game 7.  All the marbles.  All the blood, sweat and tears.  Move on or go home.  And there is no tomorrow.  Game 7 might be the best thing we have in sports, especially in hockey.  

Maple Leafs-Bruins.  Rangers-Capitals.  What a Monday night.  The Leafs forced Game 7 in Boston at home during Game 6 and the Rangers forced a Game 7 in Washington during Game 6 at Madison Square Garden behind Henrik Lundqvist, big time blocked shots and a heck of a lot of heart.

So here we are.  Game 7 times two.  Three Original 6 teams involved.  The right to move on or the heartache of going home.  I will take the Bruins at home.  They are so tough in these spots, as evidenced by their 2011 Cup run.  They know how to win, are deeper and of course make it so uncomfortable for the other team with physical play and brutal checking in both ends.  I like the Rangers on the road.  The Capitals have blown eight series when having a two-game lead in franchise history.  And the goaltending favors New York.

Game 7.  Twice.  Buckle-up.
