So what is it with this team? One night they get blown out by the team they are fighting with for a playoff spot. The next they play the defending champs tough and win in dramatic fashion in an OT shootout. If this season has taught me anything, it's to not ask questions. I have no idea who is going to show up every time the Caps take the ice. I have a feeling they don't know themselves. Four games left until we find out if the "good" Caps showed up enough to get us to the playoffs or if the "bad" Caps paid us a visit one to many times...
I was able to follow the scores and highlights tonight but had to leave my TV after the 1st intermission.
Therefore points are going to be short and sweet and pretty seat-of-pants thrown together.
3rd Star (1 pt):
Joe B. Joe B rarely lets us down. He did let us down in the first period. He also loves goals and drama. The Caps sure gave us that at the end of the game so I'm confident Joe B had several great moments then.
2nd Star (2 pts):
Locker. Locker had a pretty crazy suit-tie combo on tonight. I enjoyed his back and forth with Joe B during the first period. He was also handling intermission interviews tonight and I always find his interviews more enjoyable than Smokin Al's.
1st Star (3 pts):
Jill Sorenson. Jill doesn't get enough credit. She knows her stuff. She gets air time every night, though its normally very brief for pre or post game interviews, and she probably deserves to be on camera a lot. I am always saying she seems a little to "business" like whenever she handles the intermission breaks so I have a hard time connecting with her. Still, she is a hell of a hard worker so she gets some much deserved recognition tonight. Also I left after her intermission break so I apologize to whoever her partner was if they gave the broadcast of their life tonight.
Tonight this goes to me. That's right, the editor in chief himself. I left my television to go out for pizza with friends. I have let you all down. Actually...last time I watched the Caps they got killed. Tonight they got a win. On second thought, I probably did you all a favor by skipping out early tonight!
That's all I got for tonight. Sorry for the lateness of the post. We only have 4 games left, with the last being on NBC. That means only 3 CSN games left! The race is heating up and I'm pretty excited to see how things are going to turn out. Check back tomorrow during the day because I'll be putting up a post how the end of the season "awards" are going to be handled and what to expect during the off season.
