A note to myself, and fellow Caps fans

When the sky never ceases to fall… While I can appreciate being frustrated at a loss, and a lack luster one at that, there certainly seems to be a contingency of fans who get increasingly, and at times unreasonably, upset after each and every loss. As a fellow fan, it has started to wear on […]

Where to spend New Year’s Eve? What to do in Pittsburgh? When to get to the stadium? How often to boo Crosby? Where to go afterwards? […]

Much is being made this morning over a post-game conversation between friends Alex Ovechkin and Ilya Kovalchuk, or ‘Thatgate’. The friendly conversation, which many believe should never have occurred (or at least should not have included a jovial Ovechkin after the embarassing loss), resulted in laughter that interrupted Coach Boudreau’s post-game media Q&A session. While the […]

Rivarly under the microscope: Bears vs Penguins

Perhaps one of the best ways to measure your hockey team is via their performance against a division rival. For the Bears, that would be the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins. They’re close in proximity (really only about a 2 hour drive along Route 81), the hatred runs beyond the AHL (look at their parent clubs), […]


Three for Three: Washington Capitals Games 19-21

Actually, that might be an understatement, with three total NHL games […]
