You guys are the best. Mike Green starts Tweeting and our phone rings off the hook! FOUND PANDA, people!
Mike was as excited as Gator and I about the Caps putting together a serious, solid win. Ovi had a goal (haven’t typed that in a long time), Nicky and Jeff Halpern each 1 G/1 A, Troy Brouwer had a Gordie Howe hat trick and iCarly rocked 1 G/2 A. That’s two three-point games in a row for John! Someone told him Gator wants points for Christmas. He had a beast of a game and was named First Star.
Sasha Fierce missed two games with a minor shoulder injury, and was back in the lineup last night with 15+ min of ice time. No points for Semin (in his last 5 games), but dear God we can’t have everything! Settle for the Caps’s PK clicking, killing 6 of 7 minors. Overall their PK ranks 24th in the NHL – and it’s usually Sasha in the box anyway. Could it be the Capitals are getting back on track?
Tweeting while biking it’s easy (I once texted Gator from the elliptical, almost resulted in me going on injured reserve), but it’s worth it. Last night gave everyone a lot of hope, something the Caps sorely need. Now if they can string together a few wins under Hunter, Ovi can figure his shit out and Mikey can get back in the lineup, we’ll be in business. And if he can’t play, at least he should cheer where we can hear/read it.
