Here’s some highlights from one of the longest playoff games in history
May 2nd, 2012
Pens in ’09 after having a 2-0 lead in that one as well, suffered perhaps their greatest upset in 2010 when the 33 point underdog Habs beat them. In doing so, Washington becoming the all-time leader in blown 3-1 series leads with their fourth allowed (leaders as well in all-time series blown with 2 game leads at nine). Then in 2011 got swept in the 2nd round by an underdog Bolts team. I challenge anyone to find a hockey team with a more painful record of playoff misery. I feel for Caps fans.
The Caps also blew a 2-0 lead to the Isles in 1985 and got upset by the Rangers in 86. After this they lost to lower-seeded Philly in ’89, Pittsburgh in the Patrick final in ’91, then blew a 3-1 series lead in ’92 to the Pens, got upset by the Isles in ’93, blew another 3-1 lead to the Pens in ’95, blew a 2-0 lead to the Pens in ’96, got upset by the Pens again in 2000 as well as 2001, blew a 2-0 lead to the Lightning in ’03, lost a game 7 OT at home to Philly in ’08, a game 7 at home to the
Me and my wife met that night watching the game at a bar w/some friends…married almost exactly a year later…now on 23 yrs !!!
I watched this game at my aunt and uncles house in Phoenix when I was on vacation. Never forget it.
rofl the 80′s transitions are hilarious.
The Capitals unfortunately have a long history of losing big Playoff games
wait why how did he ruin it?
Happy Easter : )
The Easter Epic…happy Easter, hockey fans!

Didnt the Crapitals have a streak of like 20 wins in a row against the Isles in the late 90′s?
Awesome….I was party hopping that night (I was 18) and I watched that goal being scored at the Melville Bowling ally at 230 am….wow…screw the caps. Dogs.
isles all day
Lol…the commentary is exactly like something you’d hear in an episode of the Twilight Zone or something…especially the ending.
The NHL still has a great product folks; if you’d just give a chance for once & stop bitching all over Gary Bettman all the time……
damn i wasnt even born for that game. but at least im alive to see the caps beat the flyers today. go caps.
Back when the NHL had credability and was fast and fun to watch. Thanks Gary Bettman for ruining a once great league.
