    Anyone watching?

    I drove 8+ hours round-trip to watch the Kings lose in double-OT in Vegas last night. Like just about everyone else, I was skeptical about a team there, but they’ve done a remarkable job both on and off the ice. I still want the Kings to win, though.

    Sharks-Ducks should be an entertaining series, also. Too bad they can’t both lose.

    Saw on FB you drove out there, you did spend the night right? Just asking since the game didn't end until well past 11. My Bro-In-Law is a huge Kings fan so I did watch most of Game 2 to keep up w/his texts, but aside from the US Women's Gold Medal match v Canada (what a game!) I haven't seen a game since last year's playoffs. Is it a sin to hope both SoCal teams do well?:eek:

    Yes, I spent the night. I’m crazy, but I’m not that crazy.

    And, to your other question, it’s a sin to ever hope the Ducks do well.

    I live in the nation's capital, what are these "playoffs" you speak of? We play an annual "post-season exhibition" here, it never lats more than 6 games.

    FDC, now that was funny. The Caps playoff misadventures transcends the NHL and they have to at or near the top of franchises that torture their fans.

    Tim, since the SoCal teams are 0-5 so far the playoffs look short lived.

    @FulhamDC I know you don't want to jinx anything, but even casual observers can respect Alex Ovechkin exercizing the demons and getting to his first conference championship.

    WE BEAT THE PENGUINS!!! WE BEAT THE PENGUINS!!!

    It's like we won the cup, the world series and the super bowl all at once around DC today, this is how beat down the fan base (well, what there is of it) in this city.

    Here's Ovechkin after the game last night, it goes off the rails at about 23 seconds:

    This seems appropriate at the moment:

    He's the one thing the Penguins didn't have this time, unlike all those other times they beat us.
