Let It Go, One Nation's Captial vs. Another

Okay, so the Caps played their best all around game this season against Buffalo on Saturday night, garnering them a 7-4 win. But they scored 4 goals? How is that great all around? Well, it's pretty hard to keep the Sabres off the scoreboard. So Ovechkin got fined $1000 for the late hit on Brier. That's that, no retribution will be sought, it's over. It's done. Let it go. It's been blown way out of proportion. Ovechkin is not a dirty player, and what he did was no dirtier than a defender giving a cross-check after the other team scores a goal, which happens all the time. If you actually know something about hockey, you would know that Ovechkin is not a dirty player, Brier didn't dive, and it's done with. Move on. What are you still doing here? Go! Move on! "It's over! Go home!" (To quote Ferris Bueller)

So tonight, it's one nation's capital vs. another. The Capitals and Senators go head to head, and both teams are on a streak. Some good news for the Caps is that Wade Redden will be out of the line-up tonight for Ottawa and that Dainius Zubrus is back in the line up for the Caps. I'm going to keep this semi-brief because there isn't all that much to say. I think Brent Johnson will be in goal tonight. Kolzig has played alot and I think it'd be smart to give him the night off to prepare for the Ducks on Friday. In addition, Brent Johnson has been stellar in his career against the Senators (3-0), including garnering a shutout last season in Ottawa. Will the Caps chase the starting goalie from the crease tonight for a fourth consecutive game. I think so, but I don't know if it will be their goalie or ours, seeing as what the trend has been the last few games, and how we started against the Senators last time. I'm going to go with a 4-2 Caps victory. Goals from Zubrus, Pettinger (great hot streak going for this guy), Bradley, and Ovechkin.
