David Krejci has lived through lots of Game 7 situations. He's been on both ends of blowouts. Same goes for nail-biters. An injured Krejci even had to sit and watch helplessly as his Bruins suffered one of the most ignominious losses in franchise history two years ago.

But all that matters about Game 7 was boiled down to two things by Krejci yesterday after what could have been the Bruins' last practice of the year at Ristuccia Arena.

"It's fun when you win," Krejci said, "and it sucks when you lose."

By about 10:30 tonight (or perhaps a little later, given how this series has gone), the B's emotions will be on one end of the spectrum or the other, their final game against the Washington Capitals in this ultra-competitive Eastern Conference quarterfinals in the books.

And with all six games being decided by one goal — three times they've gone to overtime and twice the game-winner was scored in the final two minutes of regulation — predicting the outcome of tonight's contest would be foolhardy.
