Sunday afternoon’s date between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers was a mixed bag. There were some tasty kibbles of Good Sasha and Chimdog, but also some rancid defensive morsels in there as well. And not nearly enough Ovi snacks, which is supposed to be the best part.
Ryan Callahan stopped the puck with his skate and scored while Neuvy was out of the paint. In the second period, Jason Chimera dropped a pass to Alex Semin, who slapped home the tying goal. Ryan McDonagh put the Rangers up and then promptly injured himself on a bad patch of ice (he came back a few shifts later). Brandon Prust got a 2-on-1 breakaway and scored the shorthanded dagger. John Carlson took a slapper that bobbled under Henrik’s five hole. The Caps valiantly attempted the comeback but ran out of time. Rangers beat Caps 3-2.
This game sucked, but we don’t have time to dwell on it. The Sharks are coming to town on Monday (I’ll be there!) and then we’re off to Florida and some pretty nasty road games. Plus there’s that whole trade deadline thing too.
Ish is about to get real.
