Pre-game Skate: B’s/Caps Game 3

With the series tied 1-1 and shifting to Washington it should get interesting. Both teams are in search of offense as there has been a total of 4 goals scored in the series.

Tim Thomas will get an earful being in D.C. after his boycotting of the White House in January. I’m sure the fans will be harassing him and trying to take him off his game.

It was this time last year in the playoffs when the B’s identity was born. A trip to Montreal down 2-0 in the series, they took both games on the road and rolled from that point.
