Bruins beat Caps 3-0.
I don’t really have anything to say. The Caps aren’t good, and their game against the Boston Bruins was awful.
In hindsight, offense might have helped.
But Laich is hurt. So is Grabo. Erskine and Volpatti too. Plus Orlov is suspended. That left the Hershey Bears to fill the ranks: Carrick, Stoa, Brown, Schilling. I don’t want to do the math on if losing Ersk was a bad thing. Doesn’t matter. Even if the Caps didn’t suit up a bunch of sub-NHL players, the Caps aren’t a match for the Bruins.
The whole “let ’em shoot, but keep those shots on the outside” plan failed again. Gregory Campbell got a deflection up front during a delayed penalty, and then Loui Eriksson scored on a turnover from like 0.00214 feet out. Those two goals did nothing to shake the Caps from their torpor. Brad Marchand got the empty netter.
Shots are like my favorite thing in hockey next to girls, and this game didn’t really have either. The Caps got eight shots in the first two periods. Eight shots? What is this? Freshman year at JMU?
Once I saw Beagle in the offensive zone. Once. Is that noteworthy? No. I guess not.
Running out of things to talk about…
Um. I had Panera for lunch today. There’s a cute girl who works there. I wanna swap manga with her and watch British TV shows. I probably won’t though.
Man, people on Twitter are bumming me out tonight.

Yeah, well, pal….
I mean, we didn’t even get to see any power plays. Even when Brad Marchand was marchanding.
Here’s a thing: Braden Holtby was good. Though Tuukka Rask was better.
Worst game of the season. When the Boudreau Caps sucked, at least it was interesting.
I can’t think of anything to look forward to right now. Everything sucks. Something change.
