The Caps finally snap their regulation losing streak against Pacific Division teams this season beating the Ducks 7-6! Semin had his FOURTH hat trick of the season (video). He is one of only two players in the NHL right now with that honor. For a dude with a scoring drought, he certainly knows how to come back from them with style!My honey Ovi had a masterful goal basically willing the puck into the net with brute force while falling between two Ducks – using my now infinite wisdom from reporting on BATTLE OF THE BLADES, I’d call it a true – SHOOTING THE DUCK – so take that Todd Warriner. Anything you can do, Ovechkin will do it better AND score a goal while doing it (video). Oh and did I mention Varly got pulled after the first period – OK – Mr. Cherrie says, “He didn’t start the second period.” But then I can’t say – “Varly got pulled like a Pork sammy left out on a hot summer day. Smelled like one too.” 😦 Have I mentioned – WHEN ARE THE CAPS GOING TO GET A REAL GOALIE? No offense my sweet, Neuvy. You make an awesome #2 and maybe a real goalie when you hit puberty. No, Yes? Maybe? A goalie? Not an imploding Russian Spy satellite or Lon Chaney’s bastard son. But something akin to a wall, not, let’s say a sieve, like this blog? BB, can you hear me now?
I’m just getting warmed up for SJ. Packing bags, putting on the lucky sweats and the magic necklace – oh – you all didn’t SEE THAT. Well, that will be another post. Pants will let you know if she survives 24 hours with me! 😉
