With time running out on their playoff hopes, the Washington Capitals figure to be desperate when they come to Boston's TD Garden on Thursday. NHL Network viewers in the United States will get the chance to see exactly how desperate.
American viewers can tune in at 7 p.m. ET to see if the Caps can rebound from Tuesday's 5-1 loss to Buffalo, a game that dropped them two points behind the Sabres in the race for the last playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. But winning in Boston won't be easy -- the Northeast Division-leading Bruins have won three in a row and are coming off a 4-2 win against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
