WHAT A COMEBACK!
I’ve never been much of a hockey fan until this year when I attended my first Capitals game. What a kick ass sport! I was a huge baseball fan growing up but became disgusted with the steroid era. I’m still a so-so football fan, with much of my reticence towards that sport colored by the Irsay’s despicable move of the Baltimore Colts when I was a youngster.
The Caps were down three games to one and most had written them off. But they fought their way back and won tonight’s game 7 even though they were practically sleepwalking through the first two periods. Old man Segei Federov screamed for the puck and delivered a great shot to beat the Rangers all-star goalie Henrik Lundqvist. The Caps star of the series and of the future was undoubtedly rookie goalie phenom Simeon Varlamov, who was very solid tonight (he just turned 21!). The Caps will now face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the next series, with their star Cindy Crosby. For more Caps talk then you’ll ever need, head to my latest favorite discussion board.
What an awesome yet nerve-wracking game and series!
