The new-look Washington Capitals are certainly getting things done. And for the second time in as many games trade deadline pick-up Jason Arnott was the key to the Caps victory.

“They are great guys, experienced guys,” said Nicklas Backstrom, referring to the new acquisitions. “They have been in this league for a long time. They are great players too. I think that is what we need on this team. And hopefully we can just get as much advice and get together as a group before the playoff.”

The Capitals controlled the play early on, outshooting St. Louis five-to-one at the eight minute mark of the contest. However, it was the Blues who struck first as Alexander Steen converted on a three-on-two odd man rush at 11:25. Late in the first period, the teams began to ramp-up the physical play as Matt Bradley and Tyson Strachan dropped the gloves. Bradley ended the bout with a bang as he delivered three straight right hooks to Strachan’s noggin, sending him down to ice.

Eight months ago, we celebrated our first year anniversary with a party hosted by Front Page Arlington. It was a huge success, as over 150 lovely readers came out to hang with us. That night we even did some good by raising $1,000 for Love146, a charity near and dear to the heart of friend-of-the-blog Samantha Casey.

Since that party went so well, we decided, “Ah, what the heck! Let’s have another one.” So next Saturday, March 12, our blog will be hosting our second shindig wondrously titled RMNB Party 2: Electric Boogaloo. (You can thank Neil for the name.) This year’s celebration will once again be held at the Front Page restaurant in Arlington, VA and we’ll be there meeting and greeting with our readers from 6pm until midnight.

Because some of you have already asked, RMNB Party 2 will be an all ages event and anyone and everyone is welcome to attend (well, not everybody). You can RSVP on our Facebook page here.
