Capitals Can’t Keep From Keeping it Interesting

Washington Capitals mascot Slapshot points to the camera  between bangs on the drum in the upper bowl of Verizon Center during an NHL ice hockey game.

The Carolina Hurricanes tied the Washington Capitals at 2 with 3.0 seconds left in the third period and eventually forced a shootout. The Capitals won as Alex Ovechkin finally got the puck past Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward after Ward stopped 7 Ovechkin shots in regulation and overtime. Ovechkin still seems to be living in an alternate reality making up for his lack of goals with assists. It’s a weird world, but Caps fans can live with it as the Caps keep winning. I have nothing else to say tonight that wasn’t already said better at Japer’s Rink, The Peerless, Russian Machine and the all the other regulars.

I do have some photos (no, really, I do) that you can see here or on flickr. Occasionally, I’ll take a photo at the same time one of the pro photogs with strobes shoots which normally blows out my photo beyond hope.  Sometimes, though, my photo is salvageable or even turns out kind of cool.  Tonight, there were a few that I thought were kinda nice.  I also spent some time experimenting and I may have gotten away with it.  Hope you like the photos!

Check These Out, Too!
