Hendy’s Happy For Vokoun’s Victory

Hendricks and Vokoun Celebrate

I would be lying if I tried to say that I wasn’t holding out a little bit of hope that someone on the Washington Capitals would make former Capitals Matt Bradley bleed, preferably by Alexander Semin going all bongos on him. And I’m sure I wasn’t the only one.  Instead Semin scored like he just didn’t care in the Capitals 3-0 victory and Panthers fans everywhere were left thinking #NeedsMoreBradley. You know what? It’s probably better that it worked out that way.  But, you know what? I still want to see Bradley bleed a little bit at Verizon Center. And so do you.

It was also the return of former Capital Tomas Fleischmann who was traded to the Colorado Avalanche last season and signed with the Panthers an unrestricted free agent over the summer. We were treated to vintage Flash, complete without the closing sizzle. I have personally always wanted to see him do well and hope he does so…against other teams, not the Capitals.

And Jose Theodore returned as well, but he sat on the bench. :yawn:

Of course, it was the first time goalie Tomas Vokoun faced the Panthers since leaving them for the Capitals in the off season. Shutting them out must have felt nice.

It was probably the most complete game the Capitals have played this season. But you don’t come here to read my thoughts about things like that. You go to places like District Sports Page (and their photos), The Peerless, Russian Machine, Japer’s Rink, and Ed Frankovic.

You come here to see photos from the games and that’s what I’ve got below and on flickr. Hope you enjoy!
