Game 5, PHI/WSH

From The Capitals are trying to rally from 3-1 down to win a series for the second time in franchise history. The only other time it happened was 20 years ago - against the Flyers. .. Martin Biron made 23 saves for the Flyers.

With a 3-2 victory today, the Capitals have extended their series against the Flyers to at least a 6th game. Like most, I'm cheering for Ovechkin and Boudreau, but I'm also cheering against the Flyers. For everything there is to like about them (Jason Smith, Patrik Thoreson), there's still lots to dislike (Joffrey Lupul, Derian Hatcher).

Plus, between Jesse Boulerice, Steve Downie and Riley Cote, it's really hard to even pick them to win the series, no matter how much logic points to that outcome.
