Top 10 takeaways from the Capitals eliminating the Bruins

10) Calling this the closest best of seven series is accurate, but that would involve knowing the second closest

9) As the finale showed, home ice advantage is very, um, important or something

8) Tim Thomas went from world-beating to old in an awful hurry

7) Boston Fan showed their class, intelligence and appreciation for a great season and playoff series by showering the ice with garbage

6) For the 15th straight year, the Stanley Cup won't have a repeat champion which isn't in any way indicative of how hockey is more or less random

5) The loss is clearly Thomas' fault, since it's the first Game Seven where he gave up a goal

4) The game-winner was a garbage goal scored by some guy you've never heard of, which is to say, it was won in the same way that every overtime is won

3) The game was so exciting, ESPN even covered it a little

2) Braden Holtby might be the best goalie in Capitals history, which isn't exactly a breathtaking standard

1) Boston Fan will tell you, at excruciating length, of just how heart-breaking it is to lose a close first round series, no matter how hard you try not to listen

Did you catch this? That whole thing about Boston fans being racist is just a myth though. Definitely a myth.

Missed this, but I am shocked, shocked, to hear that Boston Fan has an issue with race. I mean, what were the odds?
