The Washington Capitals left October behind but kept their winning ways, kicking off November with a rousing W over the Buffalo Sabres.
Jakub Vrana scored early in the first period, followed by Chandler Stephenson, Vrana (again), and Brandon Leipsic. Buffalo got a weird bounce off Jonas Siegenthaler’s back to get on the scoreboard in the second period, but Tom Wilson tipped in a Michal Kempny shot to make it 5-1 after forty minutes.
TJ Oshie added a sixth goal in the third period to make it a blowout.
Caps win 6-1!
Buncha goals? Yeah, it’s time for some Bailamos.

So Deadspin died today. In case you didn’t read it, it was a good place. They seemed to understand what sports was (i.e. anything, from one minute to the next) and allowed their writing to be the same. I always found them to be a kindred voice, and I appreciated all the support they’ve given us through the years. But that gratitude is somewhat spoiled by the petty way in which their site died.
It’s really, really, really, really hard to make a living doing this stuff. It’s virtually impossible to do it without compromising what matters to you. There’s a hard lesson here, and I’m still not entirely sure what it is. I think maybe it’s still revealing itself to us.
Anyway, RIP to a real one. Catch you next time.
