The Washington Capitals are going to need a strong finish to the season to make the Playoffs, can they start a run in Boston?
The Washington Capitals continue their march towards the Playoffs with a crucial game on the road in Boston on Wednesday. The game starts at 7 and can be seen on CSN.
As of right now, the Capitals are on the outside looking in for the Playoffs. They are just two points behind Buffalo, whom they lost to earlier this week in Washington. The Bruins are safely in the Playoffs, making them a difficult opponent in what has to be a must-win game for the Capitals. The Sabres don't play until Friday, so the Capitals could regain 8th place in the East, even if it's just for a day.
