First of all, this was not the way to go. This really wasn’t. It was a… how to put it? A Habs-esque ending. This series deserved better. The Caps deserved better. The fans deserved better.
I think I love the Caps even more than I did before. They’re a fantastic team. With some tweaking they can be even better (how about SOME D, eh?). They need to take this experience and come back a better team in the fall. Ovie was very classy at the end with dishing out hugs for the Pens (none for Sid though. I was rooting for him to punch him out if you weren’t wondering what I was thinking). And actually, I was incredibly surprised to see the Verizon Center crowd cheering their team on in the last 2 mins. That Montreal, is how you support your team. I hope you were watching that. Because THAT is how you treat your team.
So thanks Caps. I know this wasn’t how it was supposed to end, but you’ll be stronger for it in the end. Promise. The Stanley Cup is coming to Washington and Ovie’s going to be there going insane. Just you wait =)
I didn’t see much of you this year during the season, but you can bet you’ll be fighting for time with my Habs in the fall =)
I’m sorry. This is purely bandwagon stuff here. But if those Penguins are to go down then really the only team capable of that in the east are the Bruins. I’d like nothing more than to see Lucic get suspended for life after taking out Crosby for good….That would be awesome. Of course the Bs will then lose to the Wings…. or… maybe the Hawks….. maybeh….
