Congrats!

I was in a sports bar in Charleston SC the day after my wedding (on our honeymoon) watching the Skins. Yes the wife was with me - I married a sports fan!

Thankfully, so did I! When I get the pro pics in, I've got one that looks like a draft day photo. Got her a Skins jersey with her new last name and our wedding date on it!

She pointed out to me that it's Mike Sellers' number!

Thank-yew, thank-yew :lol:

Another funny tid-bit; When we were being announced (at the start of the reception) we came in to "The Hey Song"!

It was awesome!

Time for the Caps to get back to their winning ways.

Bad first period, switching to lucky Sean T jersey since my lucky Mike Pivonka jersey is at home.

There must be some issue with anyone defending that pipsqueak Briere. I don't know what the issue is but he and turnovers are killing the Caps.

I think part of it is the nerves of some of the younger players, we also really lack one tough physical defensemen. To bad we can't clone Mark Tinordi.

I'd settle for Scott Stevens or Al Iafrate. Or for Brashear to send Briere a message.

Mike Greens fight messed up the PP, but I was glad to see him sticking up for Morrison[/quote]

I was thinking more like BS on the slashing call added to Green's penalty and more BS on the penalty shot call. I'm also thinking Boudreau needs to give Huet a night off. The Caps have no energy. They spend too much time being fancy and not enough time shooting the puck. And all that fancy passing keeps turning the puck over. They need to change their strategy.

I think the entire team needs to play more physical. I agree on Huet, I also think Kolzig would fight back if people crashed the net, if he was in goal. I did not have the benefit of seeing many caps games, but it seemed like for the periods under BB, the team did much better when they took more shots. I remember a few times after bad losses, or bad PP chances Steve Kolbe remarking on that.

:puke:

At least it was only a double OT loss, not a 4 OT loss.
