Pivotal Play-Off Game Tonight For Caps

By Matt Bush

It's a very busy sports weekend for two D.C. teams. Tonight at 7 p.m., the Capitals will try to finish off the Montreal Canadiens in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Caps hold a three games to one lead in the best of seven series.

Just six days ago in this very building, it was a much different story. The Canadiens had won game one, and were up 4-1 in game two before the Capitals took control, winning the game and the following two in Montreal, outscoring the Canadiens 16-5 in the process. A Capitals win would set up a second round match up against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Meanwhile in New York City, the second round of the NFL draft takes place tonight. Barring any moves, the Redskins will be spectators, as they traded their second round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for new quarterback Donovan McNabb. The Redskins drafted offensive tackle Trent Williams of Oklahoma in the first round.
