The Washington Capitals lost to the Boston Bruins by a score of 4-1 today at Verizon Center and Brooks Laich to a leg injury and Dimitri Orlov to a second puck to the face in a second consecutive game. After Marcus Johansson’s third period goal for the Caps, my brother texted me “So much for the beautiful symmetry of 3-0, 0-3,” having done the 0-3, 3-0, 0-3 thing just a few weeks ago.
I spent a fair amount of time talking to the guy that has the two seats next to me. He and I both got our seats in 420 in April 2008.
He’s thinking about not renewing for next year.
Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine, On Frozen Blog, and Ed Frankovic share some thoughts on the game, but what else is there to say?
My photos are below and are on flickr. Thanks for looking.
The Washington Capitals gave up the first goal again yesterday afternoon, this time to the Ottawa Senators, but they scored the next and final three goals of the game to end their brief three game skid. The worst moment of the game came when the Senators Milan Milachek cross checked Karl Alzner into the board headfirst from behind and Alzner lay on the ice nearly motionless for a few moments. There was much relief through Capsland when Alzner continued taking a regular shift through the rest of the game after a brief trip to the dressing room.
I was alo glad to finally be able to capture an image I’ve been waiting for all season…an image of Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson on the ice at the same time.
Hopefully the Capitals are able to keep up their winning ways. Read more better stuff at Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine, The Peerless, and watch some TV at On Frozen Blog. See too many of my photos below or on flickr.
