I don't think I have ever seen the words "Don Cherry" and "decent jacket" in the same sentence before!! We beat Calgary in OT on Saturday. My niece and I sat 3 rows off the ice right by the Lightning bench and had an awesome time. There was an obnoxious Flames fan sitting behind us and she was really dogging one of our players - it actually sounded kind of personal, like he had dumped her or something - but it was nice to shut her up. He got the assist on the OT goal. She and her friends kept saying "look at the score board" anytime anyone said anything to them and when that 2nd goal went in about 10 people whipped their heads around and shouted "LOOK AT THE SCOREBOARD" at them. I love it when horrible road fans are shut up by the team. They are still mad at us for 2004...
We play Vancouver tonight, so another round of "Oh Canada" (which I love) and hopefully some good hockey.
My office building is near a shopping mall and I walked past a touristy/sports store where I see T-shirts on display: "Washington Capitals - 2010 Southeast Division Champions". So my first thought was, as a bit of a superstitious sports fan, "WTF? Isn't this a bit early and presumptuous?"
But then I discover it's true -- 3 years in a row as Division Champions!
I just bought tickets to Game 2 of the Eastern Conf Quarterfinals (opponent to be determined).
Let's hope for a great playoff series this year and (sorry Sky) that Pittsburgh gets taken out early!
Well, Kez, your Caps added another 2 last night at the expense of my Bolts...We didn't play badly and up against almost any other team, we would probably have won, but oh well. We certainly won't be 2nd to last in the league this season and that is an improvement over last season, so that's good.
Two big wins for us...Carolina and Boston. 6 points away from Boston who is in 8th place...I sort of hope they don't make it as we won't make it out of the first round, but what ever happens will happen. 3 big injuries tonight too and Buffalo on Saturday @ Buffalo...eek!
I think you're right.... it will be interesting to see how the Leafs do next season. This is the first time in years that I think they might actually have a lot of potential---- not necessarily to win the cup right away, but a little light at the end of the tunnel
Last night was the Lightning's last home game against Florida and right now is their last game of the season at Florida (we are up 2-1). Steven Stamkos is 1 goal away from the Rocket Richard trophy. He got his 50th last night. Ovechkin has 50, but he is done. Crosby (I heard a little boy call him Cindy Crosby last night - I was amused...) has 49 and is playing at the same time that we are - I don't know if he has scored or not. Tanguay and Lecavillier scored ours. Stammer has had several good opportunities and fingers crossed he gets one today. I hate the end of the regular season, especially when we are not in the playoffs. How many days until the 2010-2011 NHL Season??
