Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Game 7.

 

Brock McGinn slapped in a pass from Justin Williams and into the net with 8:55 to go in the 2nd overtime to eliminate Washington.

 

All 4 division winners have been bounced in the 1st round of the playoffs.

 

Carolina will face the Islanders in round 2.

Caps looked absolutely dead for most of the OT periods. The winner by Carolina seemed inevitable as their sustained attack went on.

 

Carolina turned it up in both OT's and couldn't get anything to fall until the game winner. There was a part of me that was wondering if they had used up all their chances and Washington was going to steal the win with a bang bang play. I'm glad my intuition was wrong.

If anything, these Stanley Cup Playoffs games have shown us that almost no lead is safe, no matter the deficit and circumstances. Washington pounced on the Canes and led 1-0 after 2 minutes and then 2-0 after the first 6 minutes. It would've been easy to assume it was a formality that the Caps would move on.

 

What is it about a short-handed goal that is the ultimate spark to a big comeback win? Sebastian Aho brought life back into the Canes, just like Nick Foligno did for the Blue Jackets last week to ignite the rally. I love playoff hockey!

Giving up that shorthanded goal with a lead like that was brutal. Absolutely can't do that.
