Caps vs ‘Canes Game 7: How and Where to Watch

The Capitals play for the chance to move on in the playoffs tonight in game seven against the Carolina Hurricanes. Though the Caps are favored, the Hurricanes may have an ace in the hole: Justin Williams, also known as “Mr. Game 7” throughout the league.

Williams, a former Capital, recorded a perfect 7-0 record in winner-take-all situations with seven goals and seven assists prior to losing his first game seven in the first round as Washington fell to Toronto. Caps forward Carl Hagelin has made a similar impact in game sevens, and he is in a four-way tie for most game seven wins by any player with eight (four against the Capitals while he played for the Pittsburgh Penguins).

The last game seven the Caps played in ended well, as goaltender Braden Holtby shut out the Tampa Bay Lightning to send his team on to play for and win the Stanley Cup in 2018.

How to watch:

Goalie Braden Holtby shut out Tampa Bay in his last Game 7 to send the Caps to the 2018 Finals.
