That moment when the Washington Capitals my most consistent team…
… and running hard like they really belong in this race.
The Bruins and Capitals have played 144 minutes of hockey and scored a combined four goals. The Flyers/Penguins are averaging four goals per period in their series. Needless to say I’m a bit high strung about tonight’s first home game in DC. There are a lot of us who like both the Pens and Caps – weird, but true. Tonight I’m mad at my boyfriend (the Pens) and probably going to get rowdy about that guy I keep saying is “just a friend” (
the Caps Nicky B Mike even Ovi for heaven’s sake).
Mike had four shots on goal Saturday (Jay Beagle had six. SIX!) and played over 33 minutes. I want him to score so everyone can shut up about how he used to be like Erik Karlsson. (It’s true but I get so defensive!)
Here’s Mike talking about feeling “the best [he has] in two years” and how tight games frustrate both teams [link]. His hair is so Elvis from this angle he’ll be asking all the cameras to shoot this way from now on.
He even uses “attrition” correctly in a sentence. Break out your SAT words (or whatever they have in Canada) for the playoffs!
And remember that time Sasha Fierce blocked a shot?! I KNOW! Everybody’s into it now!
I want to see more of those plays and this expression tonight while I’m jumping around, trying not to fall from the 400s at Verizon Center.
PS: Sorry to Chuck for all the things I’m going to say about the Bruins, right out loud this time.
