All recordings of last nights game should be erased.  If there ever were a clear need for cancel culture, this was it  :evil:

Wilson will replace him in the ASG.  Has there ever been a fight in an ASG?

Wilson comes in 3rd in hardest shot competition at 101.1 mph.  Hedman 1st.

Yale is really more baseball. Harvard is hockey management.

Well that was rather a disappointing result this afternoon (lost 4-1 at home to Ottawa).

Will we ever have another sports day like 31st January 1988? That day began with Capitals home to the Flyers, the Caps winning with Kelly Miller scoring the only goal in overtime...followed a few hours later by the burgundy-and-gold devastation of the Broncos in Super Bowl XXII. With the exception of the Nationals' first-ever home opener in 2005, that was arguably the greatest day in DC sports history.

You reeeally overlooked this one:

May 30, 2018 is a close second for me.  The Capitals won game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals to turn that series around en route to winning the Cup.  It was also their first win in a SCF game in franchise history (oh, and did I mention "The Save" happened?).  On that same night, the Nats completed a sweep of the Orioles in Baltimore.

The Orioles certainly exacted their revenge last season.  Oy.  And the hockey gods have apparently decided that the Caps are going to be the turds of the Metropolitan Division in 2022.

Capitals rut continues: lose 2-1 at Philly (Giroux scores 11sec in, Caps down 2-nil through 1, Oshie gets PP goal in second but that's it).

In their current state, Caps are going to be one and done - IF they make the playoffs.  Lav is like an anti-alchemist, turning gold into crap.

Just getting the guys together.  Unless Putin has put a hit on Ovi.  If they are playing like this a month later then worry.

Was that Jensen who messed up the easy clearance?  Just terrible after tying it up.

Reminds me of what happened to Tom Poti.  There aren't many players left who don't wear visors...Chara and Lucic, not many others.  And Chara is too tall for anything to reach his head  :P
