It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Before you eat a bunch of super unhealthy food and then lose all productivity at the office on Monday, let’s rap about the Caps win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Caps looked sluggish in the first, giving the Flyers an early lead when MDZ knifed a redirected slapshot. The Caps rallied in the second, scoring twice on consecutive shots, the first knifed by Alex Ovechkin and the second knifed by Dmitry Orlov.
Carrying a lead into the third period, the Caps promptly surrendered it as Nick Schultz knifed a goal after a Caps icing. No matter: Matt Niskanen wrested back the lead by driving between the Philadelphia and knifing a gorgeous goal single-handed.
Caps beat Flyers 3-2!

No Joe B suit, but please do say hi to resident artist Rachel and f.o.t.b. Jenn!
Another uneven effort, but again the right result. The Caps’ survival of that miserable first period is thanks to Braden Holtby, who noshed on a lot of close-up slot shots. But Washington’s rebound in the back 40 was a team effort, and the goal scoring came from stars and depth and ice-cold dudes alike. I can dig it. Can you dig it?
Go Panthers. Knife it.
