Dropping The Gloves.

I really don’t even care that much that the Caps lost last night. It would happen eventually, and the game was so entertaining that it made up for the final score.

I’m pretty sure whenever Alex gets close to fighting, the referees, coaches, and any other NHL personnel in attendance collectively think to themselves, “Oh crap, there go the gloves. Get him the heck out of there.”

Matt Bradley is a hero. Plain and simple.

I am a little mad, however, that Alex is now FOUR back in the goals race. That’s a lot of ground to make up, young man. Get your ass in gear.

He also happened to win a faceoff last night. It was…mindblowing, to say the least.

Lars Nicklas’s roughing penalty (or maybe boarding, I don’t remember what they ended up calling it) was 17 different kinds of cute. Lookit him, playing physical!

The Caps play again tonight, but the Sabres don’t. This layoff is getting a little annoying.

  1. Pretty sure they’re trying to mess around with us by giving the Sabres four days off.
