Caps caption contest (because it's Friday)

The Caps are taking the day off after losing in a shootout last night against Carolina but setting a new franchise mark for points (109). There shouldn't be too much going on today, but Gene Wang is working on a story about playoff scenarios and how much the Caps are paying attention to the teams they could face in the first round, so check back for that later this afternoon.

In the meantime, get creative and tell us what's going on in the photo below, taken by the Post's Toni Sandys at Wednesday's Pens-Caps game. There won't be prizes, but there will be winners. Yay?

This is either Bruce saying his gut feeling about Knuble scoring in the shootout is "THIS BIG" and Ovy, Corvo and Schultz are thinking oh no...

Or it's Bruce doing another commercial in all of his spare time to be aired locally for Subway singing the $5 dollar foot long jingle..

Just a little Caps info:

Clinching scenarios

1) Caps get 1 pt or NJ not getting 1 pt and Caps get 2 pts or Buf not getting 2 pts and the Caps win the East. The magic number for the Caps to win the East is 2 pts.

2) Caps go 4-3-1 and they win Pres Trophy no matter what SJ or Chi do. The magic number for the Caps to win the Pres Trophy is 9 pts. Each regulation loss by both SJ and Chi lowers the Caps magic number by 2.

GO CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In a futile attempt to charm the heavily pro-Penguins officials, Bruce Boudreau breaks into song, singing the aria "La Donna E Mobile" from Verdi's opera, "Rigoletto". The officials were not swayed, and in retaliation, placed all but one Capitals player in the penalty box, resulting in a short handed goal by Alex Semin.

Coach B was heard shouting to his team "You know why Elena loves me? Because it's this big!" Team Captain Alexander Ovechkin, wonders "did he just say that?" Defensemen Joe Corvo and Jeff Schultz looks away in shock.

You mean we only can make one caption at a time. My thoughts:

1) Corvo, our resident crow, is also a leaner

2) Bruce is talking about cup holder for large shiny cup and making appropriate hand gestures

3) Elena holds up her sign, expressing feeling for a certain person.

4) Is there a high chair for our Captain somewhere? (He looks elevated to me)

5) Hold your stick high, Jeff (i.e. Schultz)

Next question: is Elena Russian or is she Spanish.
