*Capitals fans are better than Redskins fans in at least one category: They wear jerseys of current players.

The rundown before tonight’s Game 7: Current players were Mike Green, Boyd Gordon, Donald Brashear, Milan Jurcina, Michael Nylander, Nicklas Backstrom, Alexander Semin, Chris Clark, Steve Eminger, Cristobal Huet, Olie Kolzig and, most of all, Alex Ovechkin.

Former players: Rod Langway, Dale Hunter, Al Iafrate, Peter Bondra, Scott Stevens and Mike Gartner. …

*Evidently several rows of section 200 on the club level didn’t get the memo about the Caps winning Game 6. At face off (7:10 p.m.), more than 30 seats were unoccupied. As usual during the last month, the upper deck consisting mostly of single-game ticket sales was packed.


It shook us pretty good. But the way we were playing, I thought we had a chance. And sure enough, it was 2-2 after the second period, and the pressure was on them.

2-7-1: The record for Flyers goalie Martin Biron entering tonight since the start of the 2005-06 season in the second half of back-to-back starts with no day off. His goals-against average is 4.85.
