I Woke Up In A Great Mood; I Don’t Know What The Hell Happened

Laich Disputes Call

The Washington Capitals played a pretty good game against the Winnipeg Jets for almost 58 minutes last night. Then, like Mike Damone in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” said, “I woke up in a great mood. I don’t know what the hell happened.” (All that’s new is old again or something not like that at all.) Everything was under control until a weenie penalty was called on Brooks Laich for playing the puck with a broken stick when the Capitals were already on the penalty kill. With Jets goalie Ondrej Pavalec on the bench for a sixth skater, the Jets got one back to cut the Capitals lead to one. Twelve seconds later, Dustin Byfuglien was dumping the puck into the Capitals zone from the redline when it deflected off Karl Alzner’s stick  and went the wrong way into the back of the Capitals net. Nothing going in the overtime and all of the sudden the Capitals lost in the shootout.

Sometimes it’s tough to be a Capitals fan.
