Caps/Buffalo pregame

Momentum, noun: force or speed of movement; impetus of a physical object or course of events.

There is only one thing that is important right now, and that is to keep. It. Rolling. The Caps have been playing well only in fits and spurts for the past two months, and now we'd like them to win everything, if that's all right--or at the very least, to have longer fits.

Buffalo vs Washington, take three. Try not to fuck it up this time, we only have so much film here. 


So our first attempt at revenge was a little lacking to say the least. That's okay. That just means that this second attempt at revenge needs to be 75% revengier. The Buffalo Sabres have absolutely no idea what's coming for them. 

I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT that when I googled "Inigo Montoya", I got this picture of John Erskine. 

I am not making this up.


Because we have an awesome record against backups this season. We ain't too proud to beg.


Caps have killed 27 out of the last 30 penalties they've faced. Let's all stand back and admire that stat for a moment. 27 out of 30. 

I am interested to see how this is going to turn out in the long term. The Caps have had all kinds of seeming strengths and weaknesses this season, but this one is telling in a different way. Here's to the PK continuing to frustrate opposing teams to within an inch of their lives, and doing it with a handsomeness and panache not seen since the time of Errol Flynn. Whatever the PK units are eating for breakfast, keep giving it to them. I suspect it's nails and 72-oz steaks. 


Let's try to win two in a row. I know, I'm getting crazy. After that performance last night, though, this would be incredible for the Caps' confidence, and also for my mental health. Consistency is the stuff my dreams are made of.

Do it for the fanbase, Capitals. We are probably about one more sharp dive away from a mental institution.

Let's be like we were on Wednesday, decisive, confident, impossible to beat. Defense, traffic around the net--desperation. We know all about desperation by now. We can do this. Buffalo is just asking to be destroyed--you don't go around kicking the Caps' ass back to back and just get away with it. That shit does not fly.

Let's go Caps.
