The Washington Capitals played the fearsome New Jersey Devils, and – honestly – they did fine! Invigorating feeling. Fine hockey from your Washington Capitals. Washington: home of fine hockey.
Late in the first period, Trevor van Riemsdyk scored a pinball-style goal. Erik Haula scored a power-play goal in the second by banking off Alexander Alexeyev, who got de-pantsed a bit on Dawson Mercer’s goal 90 seconds later. Dylan Strome crashed the net to turn Tom Wilson’s lucky bounce into the tying goal after forty minutes. A scoreless third pushed us into overtime, which was fun but fruitless.
Caps lose 3-2 in the shootout.

Actually, I’m doing my top-10 anime right here. In no particular order:
Most of those are about death, depression, and disassociation. That’s my bag. Ghibli makes up half of the list. Those are the all-time greats, unless you grew up on shonen stuff, which is fine, you do you.
Anyway. Decent game. The Caps will see the Devils one more time: game 82, the last game of the season, unless you’re the Devils.
