VIDEO: Washington Capitals' 2011 NHL Playoffs Pump-Up Video Rocks


You probably didn't need any excuse to get yourself pumped up for Game 3 of the Capitals' first-round 2011 NHL Playoffs series against the New York Rangers on Sunday. The idea of the Capitals going up 3-0 and putting their first-round playoff demons behind them once and for all should be enough.

But in case you need extra motivation, just watch this video. The Capitals played it at the Verizon Center before Game 1, and it clearly served its purpose. It takes a little while to get going, but the effect of having so many players talking about how loud the atmosphere is really gets your blood going.

The whole thing is extremely well done, and it serves its purpose even if the Capitals aren't at home. Do yourself a favor and watch it. Then, watch it again. And again. And again. And again. And again.
