Bring It On (Flyers)

That's right. You heard me. Bring it on, right now. Because, like all Cap's fans, I just can't wait. Let the 2008 NHL Stanley Cup Playoff games begin!

The Washington Capitals may have been waiting a few more years than the Philadelphia Flyers, but they're ready. After missing the playoffs for the first time in twelve seasons for 2006-2007, the Flyers are back in it. After missing the playoffs since the 2002-2003 season, the Capitals are too.

Both teams ended the 2007-2008 regular season with similar records. Washington was 43-31-8 with a total of 94 points, while Philadelphia managed to go 42-29-11 with 95 points. Both teams also needed an impressive record at the end in order to make it into the playoffs. The Flyers went 7-1-1, while our Capitals took 11 of their last 12. Both won their last regular season game. The Cap's hit their longest winning streak in several years, winning the last seven in a row. These two teams split the regular season against each other 2-2.

The only way to stop Alex Ovechkin.

Like Washington, Philadelphia will be packing some fire power for the post season. Their main offense is spread out over seven players, who scored at least 20 goals this season. Meanwhile, the Capitals have their scoring spread over about four or five. Of course, 65 of Washington's 249 goals were fired off by Hockey God, Alex Ovechkin. The goalie tandem of number one Cristobal Huet and now number two Olie Kolzig will be superior in net. The Cap's defense, which has been much better than in recent years, are also ready for the job at hand. Another weapon the Capitals have is their confidence inspiring head coach, Bruce Boudreau.

No matter what the goonie bird Flyers have in mind, the magnificent Capitals will be ready. So like I said before, bring it on!

"Bring It On" by Lenny Kravitz

I'm gonna walk my faith
Gonna raise my song
I'm gonna fight my battle
Gonna praise my Lord

It's getting heavy
But I'm ready
To take on this world and rock steady
So come on, bring it on

I'm gonna face my demons
Gonna turn them down
I'm gonna keep on moving
Gonna make my sound

It's getting heavy
But I'm ready
To take on this world and rock steady
So come on, bring it on

Bring it on [11x]
