After an exciting game 6 in D.C., the Bruins and Capitals return to Boston for Game 7 on Wednesday. Game 6 was an aggressive and close game before the Bruins went on to win in Overtime off of the stick of Tyler Seguin.
Game 7 should be filled with both emotion and grit. Both teams should be coming out flying now that both Ovechkin for the Caps and Seguin for the Bruins seem to be rolling. The Capitals goalie, Braden Holtby, was still on fire in Game 6 but now that it seems tyler Seguin and the rest of Boston's top offensive players are back to normal his story may end in Game 7. As for the Bruins, goalie Tim Thomas has played fairly week. If he doesn't start playing up to his full capability, the Bruins advancement in these playoffs may be limited. If they do win Game 7 Thomas needs to pick up his play and limit the easy goals or else they will most likely be eliminated the next round.
Game 7 will be very representitive of this series as both teams will come out flying. The Bruins want to defend their title and the Capitals, who have had playoff troubles, need to show how good of a team they really are. The keys for the Bruins is to keep their aggressive play and for Tim Thomas to improve his play. The keys for the Caps is to keep blocking shots and have their tight defensive play and then capatilize on Bruin mistakes and let their offensive stars shine. Game 7 in Boston is definetly a can't miss game.
