Everything is right in the world. Let’s put behind us the Olympic tournament, the three-game slide, and the trade chaos. For the next few paragraphs, let us just enjoy the Washington Capitals’ solid 3-1 win over Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres. It wasn’t a barnburner or anything, but after the last few weeks we can appreciate a win that is not coincident with hypertension.
The bullets are back in town.
Tonight’s game might be an anomaly. When the Caps land in DC late tonight, they’ll have four new players (okay, three and a half). The defense we saw tonight might soon be transformed by the new (and recycled blood) of Joe Corvo and Milan “Juice” Jurcina (who is currently injured). The fatigued Alex Ovechkin and newly-26-year old Sasha Semin should be buttressed by the fans at the Phone Booth. Tomorrow night’s foes, the Tampa Bay Lightning, have provided the Caps some of the most emotional games of the season. It should be (forgive me) electrifying.
(Sorry about that.)
