  1. its not a misprint. it asks the question “A Cap on the Season?” and then describes the truth….a loss in game 6 would have sent the Caps home for the season.

    Dont see the problem here….now, selling tix to the conference finals…..bad move

  2. I suppose #5 skinsaneasylum could be correct, but anyone who has ever learned headline-writing would know that the AP standard is active present tense voice is for stating facts.

    If the person who wrote the headline intended for it to be conditional or uncertain, he or she is a huge idiot.
