From a Sleep Deprived Caps Fan in Attendance.

Well... that was very very very long.

The Caps, and as much as I hate to say it, the Rangers played a hell of a hockey game--probably one of the best I've ever been to.  A power play goal from Ryan Callahan put the "Rangaas" on the board in the second, then a John Carlson wrist shot tied it five minutes later.  We would then go another four periods before anything else went on the board.  The ninety-fifth shot of the game, from Marian Gaborik, went by Holtby and ended the it early Thursday morning.

All in all, it was a great game with a somewhat disappointing ending.  Ovie and others threw big hits, we got to see two games for the price of one, and Brian Boyle took an Alex Semin shot in the face--thankfully Boyle was able to keep playing.  Despite them being our enemies for the remainder of this round, it is always frightening when a player gets hit with a puck like that.

At least it finished before the Metro System closed, and stranded a lot of depressed Caps fans there.

As we've already stated in our last post, don't panic yet Caps fans.  We still have another game at home to tie this series before it goes back to MSG.

And remember, it could always be worse.  We could be the Penguins.

Also guys, please take a moment to pledge my playoff beard for the Caps Beard-a-Thon.  I'm not sure what the correlation of winning to pledges received is, but I'm sure it's pretty high.  Thanks!
