Have to admit I like the 100 level. But at least ten rows from the ice.  And behind the net so you can see the plays develop.

Quite a game by the Caps so far.   Watching the Rangers broadcast. They seem less than pleased.

Ryan Leonard was the USA player of the game in the world junior exhibition versus Canada yesterday. Two goals.  They’ve kept the BC line together for the tournament as one would expect. Three first round draft picks.  Leonard and Will Smith and Gabe Perrault.  Flyers first pick from the prior year Cutter Gauthier had three assists.  USA seems to be the tourney favorite. Starts Boxing Day. No Russia of course.

Ovie finally got a goal last night. Maybe he could get two tonight?

Just doing their usual post-2018 thing of looking really good around early/mid-season before the illusion goes away.  This year it came a little early.
You may be on to something.

Watching Laviolette and 5,000 Rangers fans eat a crap sandwich was quite gratifying  :D

Funny, I saw that same score (final in the Canes' game on the 6th) and though, "damn, sucks to have been so right."

Looks like the team is just going to tread water for another year or two as Ovechkin keeps chasing history and either crosses the finish line or falls off a cliff.  Starting to look like the latter, but hopefully he can get right.

Hell of a win.  We need to do everthing in power to get rid of Kuemper.   Charlie is a million times better

Kuzy into the player assistance program.  Hopefully he gets the help he needs. Should have been traded a couple years ago.

Well cocaine was apparently his drug of choice but that’s been a few years now.

The last several years we've only gone to Caps vs Canadian team games so that we can at least enjoy the Canadian National Anthem if not a win.

We'll be at the March 9th game only because I wanted to see Bedard in person...hope he heals up for that...

The only Caps game I have been to in a few years was early season last year against Montreal. Caps actually won.

Lindgren in the rocking chair.  Just 8 shots to save through two periods.  Ovie with a nice pass to set up the second goal.  Suprising they are beating the Bruins 2-0 so far.

What a pass by McMicheal with five seconds left.  But to the wrong team. Why would you even attempt something like that?  Even on target your team is too far away from the other goal.  Real bonehead play.

Going to a shootout would have been pretty much a foregone conclusion anyways so I'll take the point and call it a pretty decent weekend.

No joy tonight in Tedsville.  Well except for Ovie getting a goal.

30 games left. He is heating up.  Has scored in six straight.  So a good chance.  25 I think he gets.
