One morning during high school, I dressed up like the Devil for Halloween and then got roughed up by a tough guy. I remember cowering on the floor of the hallway, dressed up like an idiot. With our site all decked out in Jaromir Jagr flamebait, I feel the same way.
The Philadelphia Flyers taught the Washington Capitals humility and shame in a 5-1 mauling. All that bravado and confidence from two wins in a row? Evaporated. Flyers beat Caps 5-1.
Goals by Hartnell, Bourdon, Simmonds, Talbot, and Voracek. Jeff Halpern got the Caps on board with a rebound in the third. A few smart tip-ins, a couple unforgivable softies.
That’s it for the recap. I’m taking my option. It’s not like you’re enjoying this anyway.
We’re gonna leave this obnoxious site theme up until Wednesday morning. It’ll teach us a lesson about cockiness. Also bandwidth.
Jets on Thursday. Then a date with Varly and the Avs, who are even worse than the Caps somehow.
What the hell are you smiling about, Craig?
