Game Notebook 55, Wizards vs Cavaliers: Humbled at Home

What to watch: The Caps! Rock the Red! The Wizards game has no bearing on the season, and being the second game of a back to back, the Wizards are likely to rest basically everyone. The Wizards game also has no bearing on the Cavs season, so the Cavs are likely to rest basically everyone.

The Caps are opening the playoffs at home against the Islanders, in a 4 vs 5 match-up that promises to be high intensity, and highly competitive. Use the Caps game as a warm-up to get in the playoff mindset as the Wizards get ready to start their playoff run.

Key match-up: Caps fans vs. Wizards fans.

I take back what I said earlier. Don’t use the Caps game as a warm-up, use the Caps game as a lesson. Specifically, use the Caps game as a lesson to learn how to be a raucous DC Playoff crowd! Hockey fans are nuts, especially in DC, and especially in the playoffs. There is no reason Wizards fans shouldn’t be the same. Listen to the Caps fans push their team toward a goal, keep them humming after a goal, or help them recover after a conceded goal. Take notes. Then apply them when the Wizards get home.

X-factor:None. This game mean nothing for either team, and both teams have games this weekend. They will both be going through the motions, at best.

Fun factor: The refs may also be going through the motions. That means, if we’re lucky, we could see an officiating gaffe even worse than this no-call!
