It’s been a wild week for the Washington Capitals. They’ve downed the Flyers, Wings, and those damned Penguins all within a a few days. I was skeptical about the team’s ability to continue the streak tonight against the Coyotes simply because they didn’t have the same emotional motivation they had for the last few games. Well, it seems that the Capitals don’t need mile-high stakes to fight for a game. Tonight’s match against the visiting Coyotes was an opportunity for the so-called “second-tier” Capitals players to shine, and shine they did. The Caps won tonight’s battle against Phoenix 4-2.
I don’t want to keep you from getting your Saturday-night drink on. Let’s play the bullets:
Before you ask, my phone has been ringing off the hook with people asking me if I’m wearing Sasha’s wicked grimace t-shirt found here. No, I’m not. The shirt with a perfect record sits in the closet– much to my shame. It was an act of moral cowardice on my part, as I predicted a sloppy loss by the Red team tonight. To our thousands and thousands tens of readers, I apologize.
And finally, I’m in the market for a new Capitals sweater, but I’m crippled by indecision. Several soliloquies and some soul-searching have yielded no results. So I’ve decided that a public hearing is in order. The poll’s the thing wherein I’ll pick a cool sweater to buy. Please help me out!
