A banner regular season
[Yes, they're the Eastern Conference regular season champs, so the middle banner isn't entirely accurate, but the banners aren't real in the first place, so, you know.]
The Caps made history last night, clinching the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time thanks to New Jersey's loss to Philadelphia. Two (regular season) goals accomplished, one to go.
Caps-Pens at Heinz Field?

He was also requested as a special guest by several media outlets for the White House Correspondent Association dinner in May 2009. NHL duties prevented him from attending both dinners." Who knew?

Honorable mentions: etriscari ("I need a Cup holder thiiiiis Big!"), plovino1 ("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.")
Thanks for all the great entries. We'll do it again sometime soon.
