Sunday night, we hope that all of you will join us in watching the Miss USA pageant live on NBC at 7pm and root hard for friend of the blog & ravenous Caps supporter, Samantha Casey. (Yes, we’ll be tweeting during it and yes, at times it should be hilarious, such as the confounding panel of celebrity judges which contains the likes of Paula Deen, Carmello Anthony and Johnny Weir. Well, at least my mom digs 2 of those 3.)

So which lovely lady will you be trying to pick out on the Las Vegas stage? Umm, this one:

A good luck charm? Samantha Casey models our shirt in the dressing room before the Miss USA pageant.

OMG AWESOME!! Well since Sam left two weeks ago to get ready for the pageant, she’s managed to take some extremely gorgeous photos, stir up some controversy, mingle with a few celebrities and grab a very favorable 16 to 1 odds of winning the whole damn thing. And since like every other Caps Blog, we’re struggling for material, we’ll tell show you more!

Hershey Wins 3-2! Chris Bourque Scores The OT Game Winner!

Chris Bourque Makes Sweet Music With His Stick After Netting The OT Game Winning Goal in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals

For Game 2 of the AHL’s Eastern Conference Finals, the Hershey Bears were in front of a sold-out and enthusiastic Saturday Night crowd of 10,726 and they did not disappoint. Chris Bourque tallied the game’s first goal with a slapshot from the right faceoff dot. The Monarchs’ Gabe Gauthier would then score back to back goals to make it 2-1. It would stay that way until the 3rd period when Hershey’s Steve Pinizzotto would score his second goal in two games and send it into overtime. That’s when the miniature-sized Chris Bourque would take in a pass from Keith Aucoin on a 2 on 1 and score short-side at 10:28 of the first OT giving Hershey their 5th playoff OT win of the year. Bourque’s (6g 12a) clutch second goal of the night also tied him for first place in the AHL Playoff Scoring Race with teammate Alexandre Giroux (10g 8a). Both have 18 points a piece and are now 1 point ahead of the Texas Stars’ Jamie Benn (who none of us have ever heard of).

Hershey now has a record of 10-1 in the playoffs and have won all 5 games that have gone into OT. The Bears will now travel to Manchester, New Hampshire and try to take a 3-0 series lead Monday.

Take a look at the rest of Kyle’s incredible photos from the game after the jump.
