When TJ Oshie scored in the third for the eventual game-winner, I mostly felt relief. I was more somber than I was for his first goal. Instead of cheering and shouting, I nodded, cautiously confident that the Caps just might pull this off. It was a low-key celebration.
These three dudes up in Toronto went a different route.
Three Caps fans were drops in a sea of blue at Maple Leafs Square just outside Air Canada Centre.
The crowd was rowdy, watching the first playoff series in Toronto since, I’m pretty sure, the late 80s.
And there, among them, just three Caps fans getting cocky as hell after Oshie beat Andersen. One guy waves his tiny jersey around. Another puffs up his chest. The third holds up his hands, as if to say, how about that?!
