mikebrady1 also misses windjammer, but not necessarily the 21 game salute. And defensive man...still laughing!

Tarik, why would Bruce announce the goalie starter, even if he knew who it was? Why not keep the Rangers on their toes?

Remember when we lost 7-1 in Philly? That was great. The world ended. I don't remember anything that happened after that...thinking, thinking...

@lyle

Well, if I take you literally -- you still have only cited one example of the 6-5 win variety and none of the 7-6. But I'll concede the general point you were making, just cause I should.

Do you have something to say?

Good luck, Caps, in game 2. Yes, I'll admit I'm worried since Murphy's Law seems to have affected the team since I've started following them (since 1975).

With a morning of perspective, I recall some other teams that Murphy's Law seemed to affect also. Boston Red Sox who seemed to make losing 7 game World Series into an art form. Hadn't won a series in a century. Then they were down 3 games to none to none other than the hated Yankees. My elder daughter, at Boston U at the time, was saying the Sox would come back and win. And they did. It was poetic justice. And now one of the teams they blew a series to, the NY Mets, have choked two years in a row.

Ane then there was the California Angels. They always seem to miss out on the series. Plus they were dogged by injuries and had more players die in car accidents, shootings, and the like. And then they finally won a series and beat the hated Yankees to get there.

Things have to turn around for the Caps. In an ironic note, Varlamov shares the same uniform number as one of my all time favorite California Angels players (#40) along with Slavic heritage.

Tarik,

Here are my thoughts on your web cam broadcasts:

Your first one was good, this time you were too close to the camera. I think if you even be father than in the 1st, it would be better.

If you have time, would be nice to make it more interactive, like Katie asking you questions.

I think the distance to camera that Vogel and Scretch have is good, but you can be closer. This time it was too close. Get another mic and put it on your shirt so that you don't have to speak into the camera.
