Washington Capitals HC Bruce Boudreau named Jose Theodore the starter for the playoffs. Hardly surprising given Theo's performance over the last two months. Theo ended the regular season with an impressive 30-7-7 record. His last non-overtime loss was way back on January 12. Since the New Year turned the calnedar, Jose has posted a record of 21-1-3. Ubnbelievable and well deserving of the playoff nod. Should we expect a situation like last year? here's Bruce . . .
