So after all the years of wait around for the capitals to do something all the pressure all the hype. This year. We expected much and they went up and won the toughest division in hockey. And tomorrow night they begin the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Would not the pressure not the expectations so could this you're beating here. We'll talk to Brett Connolly the Washington Capitals in twenty minutes as a right now the capitals according their head coach feeling in the loops. Welcome in on this Wednesday. Dexter cranking itself whether it be on fox sports 910 or on the radio dot com and a couple of the headlines tonight last night. Stephen Strasburg dealing with the night after Max Scherzer was Strasburg. He he'd never stolen base nor complete game but. He had an outing to definitely be pleased with three. Through eight scoreless innings a day after shares are produced the two had shut out Strasburg allowed three hits two walks struck out eight at one point retired twelve in a row. Did not allow anybody past second base bullpen gives up a run Ryan Madson allows two out RBI double in the ninth. But he locks it down for the save Ryan Zimmerman with a two run triple and much needed experience on base. He gets a triple for brings in two runs and then that's when 41 after losing five in a row they've won back to back games. They will finish things out today. With AJ Cole taken on Brandon McCarthy now that's Brees what more topic to sweep we'll talk to dot dobbins the Jonas PC sportswriter. Works at the sports capital. Also covering the Washington Wizards who get the win last night over the Boston Celtics. You yeah Jalen brown with a crazy when he won first quarter performance. When you become a wonder who rumors is gonna go tonight. However the wizards clamp down on them he only scores 27 total all night. And John Wall surpassing 5000 career says he gets twelve scores 29 the wizards get the win at. They remain in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. They could kind of be in the sixth the seven or the eighth deeply Orlando tonight they could still win this game against Orlando. And still be 88 seed which. Right now I don't think it's the worst case scenario I think your worst case scenarios than winning and all this and buying themselves as a six seed and having to take on Philadelphia were Cleveland. The probably serve them best to be a seventh seed and take on Boston. I can't I have great expectations for the wizards but if they're going to get past the first round. Probably best take on a depleted Boston team and even that will be a challenge. So we'll check in a little bit later on went up the highway we will go to DC and we will check in with our buddy Todd dive is. And you voting for the brand new sports website which you can check out quality sports capital. Which covers all things DC. However last night and all the things going on in the NBA the war is getting blown out Kevin Durant declaring he's gonna opt out to restructure his deal to remain a warrior. With always sixers winning fifteen in a row in the process continuing. The story of the night in the NBA deals with the young men use players high school ball at highland springs. Andre Ingram who just two days ago it's called the LA lakers after ten years of playing in the GUA. After ten years of ride in the bus rolling around. Pursuing his dream he gets called in thinking he's going to an exit interview. And he walks in the door and there's rob pull Inca and Magic Johnson with a contract. But two more games in the NBA. To play two games and last night. Andre Ingram the 2003. Virginia State player of the year. Mean is NBA debut and what a debut at one's. And that's what he ended up with nineteen and 29 minutes he shot four of five from three. But they would shoot her mother and had the crowd at one point she and MVP for him. He had three blocks three rebounds came into this game he end up being the second leading scorer tonight the Josh heart lakers do fall short 10599. But guys know partner they lose because of Andrei Ingram what a performance was ten. Years. Pursuing his dream played his basketball's golf ball American. As pursuing the NBA dream has been in the GO league. And is it 323. He waited ten so is that earlier ten years almost 1110 years. And 324. Days he's waited to get to the NBA and last may did it was not just some token call up a sit on the bench. They got shot 48%. From three in the G league this year. And magic set day. We need to commit OC would you got. You're last night as Luke Walton. On seeing the performance of Andrei Ingram. You know he's a great guy has been trying to live out his dream and he finally got the chance put. I was clear about the fact like this wasn't just doing the nice thing. What we are bringing him up because we thought he could help us when we needed you know we have bodies Downey can shoot the ball so we will do was throw us. Just as much as it was for him up think she showed. You know obviously national TV show the best for world tonight what kind of shooter he has. And if you follow me on Twitter at west fox sports 910 I just weeded out he did the post game show last night with Ernie and Shaq and Kenny and Charles and just a gracious guy. Ate it looked like a kid whose dream come true. That he walked in the arena last night his wife and his kids. Said he knew it was kind upbeat he went to LA. Really thought originally it was an exit interview which the front offices do personal do they'll go over things. But he said Alison McKee camera showed up and all of a sudden he was waiting and all this and again called into a meeting in almost any walked into a room and there's rob hook again Magic Johnson he goes okay. This might not be you to below exit interview vote I don't know. He's got two games in the NBA. And last night I don't think I don't know what he could do in the final game. But he's never gonna forget the moment it finally happened what a moment for Andre anger and highland springs well they. To his wife during the broadcast to and she said when he called her she thought it was to say hey listen I'm coming on this day or whatever she was actually here in our VA. And she she got the call and he said hey actually I'm playing get on a plane you're coming out here to watch reply. That's one thing that's one it's got to be surreal you fought ten years of being in the dealing and you finally make it. And make that phone call to be able to make that hey I got called up but you don't know you're gonna play. And even the coaches hey we measure justices hey we need to hey we need your little buddy again how much megaplex but then you start firing off. And you start connect you start hitting like you've been doing in the G league and now you've gotten your rhythm and you've you've played against the Houston Rockets as the number one seed in the Western Conference I mean. Why didn't they Ed this is what makes sports so great you just you never know and can finally happened and when it does you never know how it's gonna GoDaddy can't write that story. So he gets in their last night and makes the most of his opportunity at the crowd share unit crowd should call an MB pay. You're going up against the potential MVP of the league and he would do for you. What a night by Andre Ingraham. There's also by the way the inspiration for our poll question brought to buy call federal. Yes if you read 19 in the pros would you rather score a touchdown hit a home run drain a three pointer or score a goal. And 45 cents still saying they'd rather hit the home run long ball be their choice I think there's something magical about cabinet moment. Of two of putting it out the power of putting it out over the fans. Rounding the bases having your moment because if you could have a celebration if you scored touchdowns you get the hand up in the air he got a three. You can get the fist pumping get dog pound if you score a goal bridges some about that magic of running the bases after hitting home run stepping on home plate that would be my choice. But have your vote go out west fox sports 910 fox sports Richmond dot com. It is the final night of the NBA couple things still looked at stake we told you about the wizards. The cavaliers can end up being the three of the four seed depending on what the sixers do. As you of the sixers in Milwaukee Bucks tonight and over the Western Conference. Three through eight is still a jumbled mess Portland connection I was wrong yesterday I thought Portland is locked into the threes but they could end up being balanced. You have a winner take all game tonight between Denver and Minnesota. So a lot of things still left to figure out in the NBA. We'll keep tabs on that we'll get always pixel tell you what to watch tonight we told you we'll talk a buddy Todd dive is covering the wizards. Also covering the nationals before they play their 105. Games today the flying squirrels. They get a grand salami last night and I was from Joan that error and not go. As squirrels getting another win that's now three in a row they got one more day before jumping on a bus and then. Before I jump off beyond ringer topic. That the thought you look at this whirls and we do this and sometimes you take this for grant you see the guys see the baseball players. But these guys and think about this for ten years of riding the bus like Andre Ingram did. To go from city to city play and live your dream. And we forget some dive into right in front of us with the squirrels you get these guys how long do you hang onto their dream. How long. Like how long you keep pursuing it realized one dates probably never gonna happen. And let you know last night to see debt to see that happen I mean I was a pretty cool moment to realize that ten years. Of everything that goes into it. The things you give up when your family that makes it even more special and that makes even more so on the that we can't comprehend Tyler BD last night. The reply squirrel making his Major League debut for the giant here was a guy who had a lot of acclaim a lot of hype coming up.

Vineyards and empowerment patties. And brutal. And several viewers out west fox sports 910. Now we know that some people don't like hockey but we have friends in the yard VA who are die hard hockey fans. And this time of the year this is when the Washington Capitals are judged. It's how and it's it just certain team sports there's not a rabbit in the regular season their judge in the post season. Washington Capitals yesterday declaring that the will grow about will be a net tomorrow night against Columbus. This team not the expectations of the previous two years out of their back in the Stanley Cup play elsewhere. Aiding and happen in hockey playoffs it's kinda crazy of all the playoff formats. Yesterday before practice. I caught up with Winger Brett Connolly to discuss going into this post season and also about the tragedy that we had this weekend in Canada. How as the game how is the atmosphere around the team just around hockey different when things go to the post season. Not just so much more maligned as a sort looks more energy in the building so much more. Energy into games. A bulky enter your goal not a pretty good so it's. Just so much ought. What you get and apply outside and it can happen any team to win. Hot new couple couple bounces go break and timely goals so I think guys are just. Got it figured out here. It's going to be about all they got a good team. That they play hard they play out. The very hard nosed style of going to be pitchers I think that's. Get bigger for the fans. And everybody watch and sure. You are around this last year you knew the build up the pressure and then obviously the big disappointment when you guys went out again in the second round. This year the doesn't seem to be that pressure the expectations I think it was more of what you guys have lost in the season. Lost for the season the injuries he had it was almost a pleasant surprise you and I won the metropolitan division I look at it and third shots use the term the other day. You guys are keeping it loose as you look around the locker room if you compared to last year is keeping it loose a fair assessment of this team. Yes I think so I think it's definitely had to provide not sure they're not sure there was so much pressure on the guys and Austin. Especially our our top players. Well bigger wallet with a lot should know that. Op bringing in some. Really good players were on paper we had a pretty good pretty good team so that this year we've yet to comment and you know wanted to help Boller and wanted to make a difference and and everybody's kinda pulled their weight and we knew we'd on the way to. Again have a good regular season that voters put ourselves in a good position chuck. You know hopefully. Not have a long way out front we got a good team again on our core core Barrett at the same. Out to matter of you know the guys around old core guys stepping up and chipping in on a cannon. Well sure it happens to be a lot of fun here in the Nextel Cup weeks old we are on the next couple months. Brett Connolly the Washington Capitals he said let's go see what happens in early you mentioned the way pucks drop and things go. Can you give me the theory from a hockey player can you give me a theory on the post season why things can get loud lie lie and eight seed could make a run by goalies all of a sudden. Go from having struggles to becoming a brick wall at what is to a hockey that we see in this post season and we don't see it in other like you know like the NBA. Well I think. I think quit La Colonia yeah I think. You have your best player I think you're a guy. And like LeBron James Eaton got to take over games their houses swift. With hockey it's a little harder to do value obviously you have yours your badge and your crowd he's an all out but. You know it's a little harder to take over games anymore it's in need everyone. Momentum. Is a big thing in the playoffs with hockey. A lot of different things have all got caught. But they saw just gotta gotta stay in the moment. Every dot. Laker teammates. Play as hard as you possibly can end stage you know focus the boss possible. At what happens so there. It won't elect a certain. Reaching not to want is that dot org or wait Q. Well. Like it set it up and you're gonna base sure. Oh oaks a Columbus. There edit that out real salt. We're gonna be challenged Earl out to be taught. If a player bastard out options but. Yeah you gotta put it behind you gotta bear it and it ought quickly because things change out. That while while just. Live in the moment but I enjoy. She doubts. It. A what does he give real insight here you were born British Columbia you played for western hockey league I imagine you spent a lot of time on the bus.

Shall so much and throw my whole junior girl from almost fifteen. In nineteen open air but. You're sure it's. It's a terrible. Terrible thing that happened obviously are.

You know former French ships and offer me getting on a boss was kind of you're safe place and a place where you can just saying oh here which are teammates and your buddies and watch movies like card. Bondage just to get completely different. Thanks so. I think we're realistic at all or Stanley is that all the players in transit those. And it pops community has responded. Social columns supporting them. In all they. They can heal as quick as possible. It's not. Definitely a very tragic accident for for that man. Bought it because it's all for a lot of guys. And I'm sure it does Brett we appreciate your time. Good luck to you and guys in the puck drops against Columbus and maybe we can do this again hopefully we can do this after the next round I appreciate your time down enrichment.

Columbus Blue Jackets it's a busy time in DC sports. So right now let's go to the phones because we've got the wizards with the final game of regulation tonight to go into the post season. We got the nationals in action today let's go to the deed Mercer wrote cleaning hot line he's our buddy Todd died as he covers all things DC sports. Sports capital DC to take it out is sticking to DC sports Redskins wizards capitals Nat and more. Let me start with the the wizards since he was there last night. How much did you really take away with the possibility of the wizards and Celtics meeting up in the first round of playoffs how much could you take away from last night's win. You know I I thought there bury something to take away because. All the all that important to me in an at bat it would Whitner belt or don't have. Markets lark in what you saw last night was job wall. And comments that are dominating at point guard vs Terry rosier and shame market and your plate seven. Policy we get time back on a better connection I believe we're losing them they've got Orlando tonight not a standard earlier that day. They could end up being the number eight seed even if they win I think the ball cards fall right you may be one end of the in the seventh seed. Because Boston even with the injuries. That might be the lesser of your Eagles you do not want to be in the succeed and I don't care you can sell a Philadelphia doesn't have playoff experience. The way Philadelphia's playing hot right now. I'm done it -- talk about teams gone in hot in the post season I don't know if there's team hired you got Goldstein against smash last night. They got issues teams have injury issues even without indeed no Udall you do not want the sixers and you definitely do not LeBron James. Toronto. Look I guess we'll find out how real they are here in the first round and that's who the wizards can and apply and but that they may be your best bet and I. And look it if you go make it through the first round gets depleted Boston Celtics team I know what that was it's got issues. He got out of our questions asked if you don't get through the Celtics without Hayward and without carrier ring. We lost out. Yeah we're gonna reschedule try again another time connection was was pretty poor but got back let's not rush in here because we do. We got a couple days we will get him here on Friday get a preview of the wizards and whom ever they do play Paula let's get that gives you ample time to give your picks for the night what are we watching tonight. Teens. Actually does get a word out there Zain. Whole Lotta got a lot going on tonight what is certain areas tonight and we got great stuff go months and let's see. I'll start with this afternoon brazen national some afternoon baseball NASA in 1051. Pitch Brandon McCarthy take it on AJ called the nationals. This would be for the series sweep of the Braves I believe. So then later tonight some more baseball a great pitching matchup yankees and Red Sox I don't know if you watch dale last night but. That game was over very quickly Red Sox won fourteen to one last night tonight. Must secure to knock goes up against David Price yankees at. Fenway Park seventy and on MLB network first pitch that game. And some final game final games of the regular season in the NBA.
