Capitals Beat Boston Bruins In Game 7 Playoff Win

Washington Capitals players and fans are rejoicing today after the team beat the defending champion Boston Bruins in game 7 of the first-round playoff series.

The Capitals will advance in the playoffs after last night's big win in Boston. The Caps jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first period on a goal from Matt Hendricks, and the Bruins tied it up in the second. 

That was it for scoring until 2:57 into overtime, when Joel Ward put a rebound into the net, giving the Caps a 2-1 victory. Caps goalie Braden Holtby had 31 saves.  

Each game of the seven-game series was decided by one goal; it's the first time that's happened in NHL history. The Caps will have to wait until tonight to find out who they'll face in the next round for the Eastern Conference Semifinals; the New Jersey Devils or the Florida Panthers, who are playing in their own Game 7 this evening. 

Check out postgame interviews and footage of the winning goal from NBC Washington below.
