3/21/11-SFTC Washington Capitals Inspired Music Playlist-CAPS vs. Flyers (3/22/11) and Thanks New Jersey
It’s finally starting to get a little more “positive” in the Capital’s Nation and it couldn’t happen fast enough in my mind. It’s probably a worry to many fans that Alexander Ovechkin will be out for a little while. I am VERY GLAD to hear this news. He needs the time to rest and take care of anything that may give him problems come playoff time. I’m sure our favorite DC hockeymen will do the best they can and get through the upcoming games with so many injured players. This will give several players chances they might not have had previously.
I got an awesome opportunity to watch the boys from Washington play at ice level in the Devil’s barn, the Prudential Center, on Friday night. #30 Michal Neuvirth had his skaters’ backs in the 1st period of the CAPS 3-0 shut out of the Devils last night. #22 Mike Knuble put the second two goals in behind NJ’s Marty to seal the deal.
For last Friday’s titl at “The Rock”, it’s #55 Jeff Schultz who received the “SFTC Head-butt of the Goalie Mask” prize of last night for netting the first tally of the night AND helping his crease man with an interesting, “Wait, what just happened? I need to see the replay” sort of block with what I’m pretty sure was his stick? Plus, the Devils fans sitting with me were quite taken aback when they got a close-up look at just how tall Schultzy really is.
Yes, yes. I admit it. I sat on the Devil’s home side so I could watch #30 Martin Brodeur in action for two periods. BUT, it’s also where the Capitals shot twice as well. Felt a little for Marty. His team wasn’t as helpful to him as they have been in the past.
I’m the “outcast” fan who likes those somewhat “boring” games as some have dubbed the CAPS(3) vs. Devils(0) match-up of 3/18/11. I was a very happy fan being a part of the RED crowd on hand in encouragement of Washington, but I will give all credit to Newark, NJ, the staff at the Prudential Center, Martin Brodeur just for being in the crease AND ESPECIALLY THE DEVILS FANS WHO WERE VERY FRIENDLY TO ME AS AN “INVADING” CAPS FAN. I love the Prudential Center!!!
I had empathy for the one fan in the gray shirt who kept standing up to encourage his Devils as loudly as he could. I know what that feels like and so do most loyal hockey fans of all the NHL teams.
Now as for my adventures after the game, well, let me just go with “what happens in NJ, stays in NJ,” and leave it at that.
A new category of game mentions from SFTC was inspired by #21 Brooks Laich. It’s the “Paw Your Package Award”. While I did notice that #6 Dennis Wideman was really working hard to overtake Brooksie for this honor Friday night, “hands down” – BROOKS LAICH “HOLDS” THIS ONE ALMOST EVERY SINGLE GAME!!! Umm – ROCK the you-know-what #21. (Is he making sure it’s still all there, trying to hint to all the ladies that he has stuff in his pants, not able to keep it all contained properly, using “The Package Paw” as “intimidation” for opposing teams (lookout, The Paw is Gonna Getcha), using his goods to make sure his glove is on tight or what? It’s all a part of the game as far as I’m concerned, but Brooksie should be aware that Wides is hot on his trail and working hard to win over the top spot!!
