I don't think it's a must-win for the Caps, they've shown they can win on the road (4-2 so far). If this is a must-win with the series at 1-1 then pretty much any game in a 7 game series can be called that.

I just think they've gotta break the funk at home. They lost game 3 to the Bruins I guess, so yeah it's not a must-win, but rather a game you really don't want to lose.

If they win this one in convincing fashion they could start to get into the heads of the Rags.

stone-hands Brouwer missed a finish too...

That one stunk. The Caps played very well I thought, and needed that win to demoralize the Rangers...ah well, this is how the Boston series started too...

Nashville came back to life yesterday, winning 2-0.

The Preds are a huge disappointment this round. If this was the first round, I could forgive them (I've seen plenty of teams start the playoffs at home, stink up the first two games then pull their heads from their asses for the next four). But the Preds should be operating at playoff levels and they aren't. I'd bet they lose the next two.

I'm beginning to think that either the Rangers are going to win it all based on luck alone, or they're about to go out in a burning heap. They've been living on a prayer in every game I've watched.

when you win OT games in the playoffs, usually good things happen. 2 this series.

Richards and especially McDonagh played with hearts of lions, good stuff

Devils taking the lead on the Flyers while the Blues are running into the now awake giant of the LA Kings...will anyone beat them?

2 must-win situations in a row with Nashvillle hosting Phoenix tonight, (Trotz said if they won he'd keep Radulov and Kostitsyn out) and Washington hosting the Rangers tomorrow.

I'd expect nothing less from Brad Richards. True story: The year the Lightning won the cup, they didn't lose a single game when Brad Richards scored a goal. Not in the regular season, not in the playoffs. I can't find the stat, but if I remember correctly, they were something like 21-0-7 when he'd score. It was insane.

Correction: I found the stat - 30-0-2. Holy crap.
