With a 3-1 lead at the first intermission, the Washington Capitals had a terrific start to Sunday’s game against the Leafs. Then stuff started going wrong. The Caps hardly had the puck in the second and let their two-goal lead slip away when Dion Phaneuf snuck a puck through traffic. The disorder wasn’t limited to the players either; Craig Laughlin had struggles of his own.
With ten minutes left in the game, Troy Brouwer laid a hit on Paul Ranger on neutral ice, sending the latter into Laughlin’s nest between the benches. The collision knocked Laughlin’s telestrator off its perch.
“Watch out, Locker!” Joe B said.
“Down goes my telestrator. It’s down and out,” replied Locker.
Suddenly: modern art!
At long last, hockey and glitch art have collided. Now, if I can just get Jay Beagle to talk about R+L=J, my master plan will be complete.
Craig quickly restored his precious telestrator.
And then gave it a quick test. During a live broadcast. Why not.
Hey, at least it was during a stoppage in play.
No worries. The Caps pull out the win and Craig’s baby survives to draw another day.
