So I am back from my vacation and decided to watch the game tonight in the midst of return to school work. Boy did I pick a good game to come back and watch. By that I mean I picked the worst game possible. We really could of used a win tonight against the Buffalo, the team we are tied for 8th place with. At the very least we needed to show that we were a playoff caliber team. Instead we got absolutely blown out in our own building. While the Caps aren't eliminated by any stretch, this playoff race is going to go down to the wire and we refuse to make things easy on ourselves. Good news, Backstrom might be back soon. A few notes on how the CSN crew did tonight below!
3rd Star (1 pt):
Joe B. Joe had a strong game as always and was really showing his team spirit by wearing a bright navy blue suit and red tie combo. To bad that didn't inspire our team to victory. Also had a funny comment about being "obligated" to give out a player of the game.
2nd Star (2 pts):
Julie Donaldson. I haven't seen Julie in awhile (like I said, was on vacation) so I was happy she was on in her normal Tuesday spot. She had a awesome purple dress outfit on (or maybe a shirt) and like always made me feel a little bit better about the Caps horrendous performance on the ice. She also provided some Nicky news after the game which was better then talking about the game.
1st Star (3 pts):
The Jenkins. He has been on an absolute tear of late. Not making any mistakes. Not being creepy. Having genuinely funny moments without coming off as corny or forced. Rocking the team colors with an awesome tie. With such a crazy turn around its almost like he reads this blog. Hmm....
Last Star (-1 pt):
Locker. Locker had two major blunders that went against him tonight. First, he said the Caps were in playoff mode and we all know what that means...we are going to choke. Lo and behold we did just that tonight. Besides that least we forget that way back in September Locker counted Buffalo out of the playoffs. Looks like you might have been wrong about that one Locker...
So that's all I have for you tonight. It's good to be back, just wish it could of been on a more winning note. With the end of the season fast approaching be sure to look for our end of the season awards ceremony posts where we will be highlighting a variety of the CSN crew and their work over the course of the season. Then be sure to check in during the playoffs and off season for random hockey related posts. Thanks for reading!
