I chose this picture of Crosby at Worlds for the top image of this pregame story because I’m a jerk.
Good morning, Caps fans. It’s a beautiful and busy day on the east coast. In just a few hours the Caps and Rangers will be facing off in game two of their best-of-seven series, which started on Thursday about as good as anything can start.
Go make some breakfast, do some chores, maybe get some free comic books. Do it all now because we’ve got a nooner coming. 12:30 on NBC. Caps lead the series 1-0.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|New York Rangers||53-22-7||50.6%||101.7||16.8%||84.3%|
There was no morning skate since this game is basically in the morning itself. Here’s last game’s lineup.
No time for storylines; it’s 8 AM in the morning and I have to go to Home Depot. Just know that the Rangers are pissed about Backstrom’s hit on Boyle, though totally cool with Glass spearing Holtby. This is gonna get ugly.
TOM WILSON, YOU’RE UP.
Oh good, you’re ready.
I decided I didn’t have enough time to do storylines, but I had enough time to embed this video, which is not exactly work-safe, but you’re not working anyway.
