The Answer Man

Scotty Bowman answers some questions from fans at Slap Shot…

Q: Coach, the Washington Capitals have just completed a remarkable resurgence by capturing the Southeast Division title and with it entry into the playoffs. Given that hockey wisdom holds that a team with late-season momentum and a hot goaltender (like Cristobal Huet) can do some serious damage in the playoffs, how realistic is it to expect the Caps to go deep into the playoffs? — Zed

Scotty Bowman: There’s no set way to end the season. The Capitals have really been a Cinderella story, especially the last two months. They did get the third seed. What they have to guard against, especially with so many young players, is to think — consciously or unconsciously — that just making the playoffs is their championship.
