Shootouts Galore.

Last night the Sabres played Montreal and the Caps played the Pens.  The Caps game was exciting and frustrating and nerve-wracking until the very end, with Inappropriate Older Crush Mike Knuble being the shootout HERO and winning the game.  Jose Theodore has been so good lately I don’t even know how to describe it.  It’s pretty cool.

I didn’t see as much of the Sabres game aside from the last five minutes of regulation, overtime, and the shootout because the five other minutes I did watch at the start of the second period was spent killing Sabres penalties.  It was almost comical.  Good LORD, I thought at a certain point the refs would just stop calling them because it was embarrassing.  Guess not.

Then after I was feeling all warm and fuzzy about the Caps game I flipped back over to see the Sabres score two goals with Miller pulled and then win it in the shootout.  Those DARN KIDS.  I just CAN’T FIGURE THEM OUT ANYMORE.

I do know, however, that with all this happiness and fuzziness surrounding them, they will proceed to lose in heartbreaking fashion tomorrow night against Ottawa.  Those little effers.

I’ve only been half paying attention to the Caps game on now but the Caps are losing and Alex has not regained the goals or points lead and Varly is frustrating me.  Remember how you used to play, Semyon?  Let’s try to play like that!!

At this time in exactly one week I will be in the Verizon Center watching the Capitals play the Thrashers.  I’M.  SO.  EXCITED!!!!
