Caps Claw Out the Home Victory at the Junior Verizon Center

The Caps beat the Pants – technically, in Florida, but at a home away from home. One can only imagine that Florida was bragging about their 13,000 fans showing up to their half empty arena. Regardless, the Caps won. It was the tale of Russia tonight. Ovechkin started it off with a blast from 7 feet out. Then Semin made Theodore look like the ignorant bum he is.


Another Caps player scored tonight. Tomas Fleischmann was on the board late in the first period. Whoops – Scratch that. He scored for the Capitals’ rejects (You know who I mean – Theodore, Bradley, Sturm, and Fleischmann. Versteeg and Campbell are just along for the ride of postseason failure if the Pants can somehow get the 8th seed). The Caps’ Rejects had 23 shots that, frankly, could have been stopped by Guy Boucher’s scar. The Caps had 41 shots.

Alexander Semin – otherwise known as “The Guy,” has a goal and an assist. #ResignSasha, am I right?

Alexander Ovechkin had a goal.

Dmitry Orlov had an assist on Semin’s blast from heaven.

The Caps killed all 3 of their penalties tonight. Woo. And they scored 1 goal on the power play – 1 of 6 powerplays.

The Caps take on Tampa Bay at Verizon Center 3 tomorrow. The Caps trail the Pants by 2 points in the Southeast division race. If the Caps beat Tampa tomorrow, then the Caps will temporarily be in first place. The Caps officially regain first if the Caps win tomorrow, and Bruce Boudreau beats the Pants on Sunday. Yes, Bruce Boudreau. Make the playoffs, Ducks. I smell another amazing hockey movie…


Oh, and no one likes you Mikael Samuelsson. And no one likes Brett Connolly either.

Go Caps
