The earliest sign of trouble was when Slapshot fell before making it halfway across the ice in his flag carrying pre game routine. It never really got any better after that for the Washington Capitals last night against the Philadelphia Flyers. There was some neat stuff to see like Alexander Semin hitting everything in sight and, um, ah, well…I think I got some decent photos. As usual, I don’t have much to say, but the headlines of some of the regular places you ought to be reading tell you pretty much all you need to know:
DSP almost takes the prize for best headline, but I think they used a few too many words. Even though it’s what they always do, this time, they said it better than anyone else.
Japer’s Rink: Flyers 5, Caps 1
Like I said, I think I got some decent photos this time. On one of these rare occasions when I’m sitting downstairs somewhere near a net, the Capitals are going to score a bunch and I’ll be able to get the photos I really want to get. Really. Sometime. Until then…my photos are below and on flickr. I hope you enjoy them more than you enjoyed the game.
