82 near meaningless games later, the moment all Caps fans have been waiting for is hear. Â The playoffs start tonight, and taking revenge on the rest of league for our lackluster appearances in the past 3 years is going to be sweet. Â To kick off the start of the post season, here are a few of my favorite moments from the Ovechkin era. Â If this does not pump you up for tonight, you are definitely not rocking the red.
Where it all began, April 5th 2008, the Caps clinch the divisionÂ and last playoff spot on the final day of the regular season
And who can forget NY Rangers head coach, John Tortorella, getting suspended for Game 6, in the 2009 playoffs.
So tonight when the Caps take the ice against the Rangers, the lasting memories of Game 7 in 2009 should be fresh in all our minds.
