The Washington Capitals made it interesting. Again. They gave up a third period lead to the Columbus Blue Jackets and went to overtime. Jason Chimera capped his return for a healthy trip to the press box for the last game adding the overtime game winning goal to an assist earlier in the game. Like the fans’ sign in the front row says, get us a bigger cup for more beer, boys. Sadly, Lego Man did not make an appearance.
Same stuff as always…go somewhere else to read about the game. Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine Never Breaks, and Ed Frankovic’s blog are always good [update: and On Frozen Blog has their take up now, too]. Look at my photos below or on flickr. That’s why you’re here.
One of my photos is kind of interesting (to me at least). A few times at every game, I’ll take a shot during the flash in time that one of the real photogs with strobes takes a photo. Normally, my photo gets blown out so bad that I skip over it. Every now and then, though, it sort of saveable. Even more rare, it’s in focus, doesn’t have much camera shake and winds up looking kind of cool. There was one of those last night when Ovechkin was taken to the ice as he drove on Steve Mason’s net. You can see it in the gallery.
