Apparently Ovechkin is mortal as per Tarik he had the flu all weekend which was a huge factor in his unusual lack of points.
Dave Steckel has the flu currently and is staying home to avoid an epidemic like we saw late December last year.
A big thanks to the Devils for putting the Canes away 5-1.
Canes are at it again tonight against Timmy and the Bruins. On behalf of Washington DC, let's go Bruins! Growl?
Heads up for Wednesday-The Islanders are on a pretty nice role. Where is Dale Hunter when you need him?
If you told me a month ago that
A. There would be a three way tie for first overall in the east
B. The Flyers will lose 7 straight and could miss the playoffs
C. The Redwings would lose 6 of 7 then lose Lidstrom to a knee injury...
I would think you were crazy... and yet here we are.
The good news is that a playoff matchup with the Sens (although unlikely) is becoming more possible :)
And...oh yea...We won't get to see Peter in a sweet RBK edge jersey anytime soon...
