Game Two - Capitals-Bruins April 14, 2012

The Capitals provided an unwanted surprise to the Bruin faithful in game one, solid goaltending backstopping the Capitals through three periods of scoreless hockey, setting up an overtime that perhaps made the TD Gardens crowd just a little bit nervous.  The Bruins survived game number one, David Krejci's head not so much so after getting clocked by the Arena glass, though a 1-0 victory perhaps not quite the margin of victory anticipated.

Will the Capitals find something to build on from game one, or was that their opening and only salvo for the series, game two reveals all on Saturday
