The east coast seems to have all the NHL talent these days, so when two titans like the Caps and the Devils meet, we’re in for a good game. The two division champions have met three times already this season, and the Devils bested the Caps each time– dammit. When the puck dropped last night, the sold-out Verizon Center and dozens of fans across the Comcast SportsNet viewing area held their breath, wondering if we were to lose another to NJD …or if the real Capitals team would show up. Glancing up at the scoreboard in the waning minutes of the third period and seeing a 4-1, we can report with some certainty that it was the Stanley Cup contender Caps on the ice tonight.
Everybody gets a present tonight:
An overwhelming beatdown for the Devils? Merry Christmas, D.C. Next week we’ve got a home game with those damn Caniacs and then a trip down to exotic San Jose to play the Sharks… who tie the Caps for first place in points. I think we can beat ’em.
