4-1 again, woo!

Tonight, by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Caps have picked up win 2 out of the 3 they need to have a reasonable shot to make it into the playoffs. If you read NHL.com with a naive eye you’d think we’re golden – the site shows us at #8. Unfortunately it’s because we’ve played 81 games vs a number of other teams who have only played 80… the Flyers included, who we have pushed (momentarily?) down to #9. With all due love to our readers with Philly heritage, I’m hoping they fail tomorrow in their game against the Devils and keep that spot, but this is scary ground to be on.  If it makes you feel any better, Flyers fans, now I have to spend out last game of the regular season cheering for the Caps to beat my home-town team, the Panthers.

    The game tonight was fan-freaking-tastic. Especially the third period – I’ve been in my share of arenas rocking to the local superstar, but I’ve not had such chills up and down my spine in a long while like I did tonight when Ovie notched his 65th goal. The last time that happened, Super Mario netted his 600th career goal.

    And the frosting on tonight’s icy cake? Bradley getting his chance to pull out those fists and lay a nice beatdown on a Tampa player. Awesome.
