“I’ve been dreaming of this moment for 20 years.” Washington’s expectations before the decisive battle of the regular season

Date: July 12, 2024 Time: 17:41:43

Washington refuses to give up. Surviving a six-game losing streak, which nearly buried their newly resurrected playoff hopes, the Capitals fight back at the end of the regular season and cling to the playoffs with all their might. The wins over Tampa and Boston put them in a great position.

Win the last game against Philadelphia and you will have your ticket to the playoffs in the bag.

“I have been dreaming of this moment for 20 years: playing games like this”

“We did a fantastic job, it was one of our best games this year. Everyone gave their best and as a goalkeeper I really appreciate that. When guys fight like that, I have to fight just as hard. It was impossible to take your foot off the accelerator.

I have been dreaming of this moment for 20 years: playing games like this. Since I started playing. In games like this, 10-year-old me, thinking about the NHL, trying to make the playoffs, I have to pinch myself. I feel incredibly fortunate to play for Washington, for the city, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s game,” said Charlie Lindgren, who stopped 16 shots and recorded a shutout.

We had to fight for ourselves and for that kid, because Washington lost defenseman Nick Jensen in the last game, Rasmus Sandin is not playing, and forward Beck Malensteen couldn’t finish today’s game due to an upper body injury. But they did it.

“You can not ask for more. We’ve had our ups and downs this year and we’ve worked hard to get to this point. And I’m excited to be able to do it tomorrow,” said John Carlson, who scored the game-winning goal today.

“We have unfinished business. I won’t say that here we only have laughter and jokes, we are focused and serene. But at the same time, it’s a fun time of year. We want to play these types of games, that’s why it’s important. You learn a lot about the kids around you. Today no one fulfilled a number, everyone played for each other. I’m proud of how we played. We have to do it again tomorrow,” Tom Wilson said.

“We understood what was at stake. “The next game will be the most important.”

Alexander Ovechkin recalled how 16 years ago Washington’s fate was also decided in the last game of the regular season: “A long time ago, we made the playoffs for the first time. We had the federals, Cozy (Sergei Fedorov and Olaf Kolzig. – Note from the “Championship”). The team was young, similar to the one we have now. The team was young and inexperienced, but we stuck together, stuck to the plan and made the playoffs.

We understood what was at stake. Everyone gave their all, it was noticeable. Carly scored the big goal and Chucky did a great job. We played solidly for the entire 60 minutes. The game is over, now you have to focus on the next one. The next game will be the most important.”

“Our best game at home and we played it at the right time. We played very clean, especially the first two periods. This goes for everything we did with the puck, without the puck, how we defended. We are losing guys, several people left due to injuries, but everyone acted in such a coordinated manner in all three areas that it was impressive. We needed this to continue the fight. Now everything will be decided on the last day,” said Spencer Carbery.
