So the Caps managed to shut out the Canadiens 3-0 in a game that was much more boring than the score indicated. That, coupled with the fact that CSN half-assed the broadcast (no pre-/post-game show or CSN intermission reports), means I'm going to half-ass this review.
Our only two participants tonight were Joe B. and Craig Laughlin, both of whom will get a point. They managed to not jinx us, though it wasn't for lack of trying as Gomez's scoring drought was mentioned multiple times, and Locker thought it would be a good idea to poke fun at the Habs' powerplay (people in glass houses and all). Still though, neither Gomez nor the powerplay actually scored, so no harm no foul.
Locker did an admirable job with the intermission interviews this afternoon. His interview with Wideman was longer than usual (perhaps because he knew he had to kill extra time), consisting of 5 relevant questions. The highlight was Wideman's sheepish grin and "...it was kind of embarrassing, but they all count," after Locker asked him if he was patenting that slapshot, which Locker described as a 'knucklepuck.' His interview-ee for the second intermission was Keith Aucoin, who bore a slight resemblance to a deer in headlights. Oh, and he managed to slip in one of his famous food-related puns based on somebody's name, referring to Cammalleri as "Calamari."
As for Joe B, well, he was there. That's about all I can say.
Tomorrow's a rematch with the Bruins, which will hopefully be less of a snoozefest. We won't have a post tomorrow because Dru and I are taking the night off and going to a concert.
