philly.com — At one end of the Wells Fargo Center ice, the Washington Capitals had begun a celebration tinged with relief, and along the boards near the middle of the rink, Claude Giroux stayed bent over at the waist, not skating, not watching the Capitals rub each other's head and tap each other's stick, not doing much of anything but dwelling.

macon.com — They're thinking about it. They have to be thinking about it. How could they not be thinking about it? These are the Washington Capitals. This is the franchise that has lost 10 postseason series in which it held a two-game lead, including one last year.
