The Caps Didn’t Win 16-3, But That Woulda Been Cool

csn-math

The Caps beat the Islanders 4-3 in the shootout, but if you were peeping at CSN Washington you might have got the wrong idea. An innocent mistake from the graphics department for sure, but imagine for a second how great that would’ve been.

It would’ve been the biggest blowout ever– tying with Montreal beating Quebec by the same score in 1920. Troy Brouwer and Nick Backstrom would have scored twin hat tricks. Jay Beagle would have scored two. Alex Ovechkin would, naturally, have done the Ovechtrick. All three goals against would have been scored while shorthanded.

    3+3+2+9= 17

    Generally speaking, when people aren’t good at grammar and spelling, they’re good at math. *Very* generally speaking. Sometimes, however….

    Peter is very good with numbers of things that actually happened. In any case, you don’t know that he’s wrong in the alternate universe he’s writing about, Hell, if the Caps won 16-3 there, and all is right in the world, maybe those numbers can add up too. Why not?
    Friends, turn not the wrath of the season on our tireless bloggers.

    All I’m sayin’ is, Beagle probably doesn’t get that second goal, in any universe….

    The Ovechtrick is 8. His number is 8. Tongue in cheek amirite? 3+3+2+8=16

    Ovechtrick was 9, because it was a triple hat-trick! But 8 goals would also make sense to be called Ovechtrick

    maybe it was a spelling error…Jay Beagle would have scored TOO instead of 2

    Wish someone could somehow make a mistake with these standings.

    Now it would be all over Internet. It is just Geico paid for it.
