The Washington Capitals have been eliminated from playoff contention, so there goes that. At least we don’t have to use the word berth this year. I hate that word. It feels wet and sticky.
An early summer for the Caps puts me in a tough situation. It’s my job to write about hockey, and I was hoping to cover a Caps playoff run for at least a week. Now I need something to do, so I’ve decided I’m going to cover the New Jersey Devils in the playoffs. I don’t know if this is a good idea, but I’m doing it.
