If the Caps go into the 3rd period of today's game 4 losing, expect the team to be taking lots of chances of getting back into the game to tie it up. Their 3rd period play will be risky but the Caps will know that this is a must win game and if they are losing, they will have to play with every last bit of will to win that they have to pull out a big win today. If the Caps go into the 3rd period with a lead I would expect them to not take any chances, have barely any offensive firepower and sit back on the lead. We have seen this many times and it backfires a lot. If its tied going into the 3rd period then both teams will not be taking chances and their nerves will be very high. I'd expect game 4 to enter overtime if the game is tied going into the 3rd period baring any goaltender meltdown.
Enjoy the game!
LET'S GO CAPS!!!!!
