Today Is Not The Day

Interns from Saginaw Vallety State are chiming in via text and MySpace: the weather is spring-like in SE Michigan.

You know what that means. Playoffs are in the air. You walk outside, smell something nice, do a little stretch and you're thinking the playoffs are almost here.

Well, they're not, Kenny.

They are most definitely not. 

Do what we do when the weather's warm in February. It's 55. Pretend it's 72. Wear shorts. Cook out. Wash your cars. Wash your kids. 

Don't watch this game. Spare yourselves. Spare your families.

It's a Live Blog, bitches and if there's more than ten comments on this thing I'll be disappointed.

It’s only 67 out right now, maybe if it hits 70 I’ll head out.  Until then…

Another weak call leads to a Caps PP.  Guess that’s how they’ll help them get the lead.

Solid first period.  Mrazek looks dialed in.

Looks like another man advantage. Can they make it two for two?

...probably not. A man can dream, though.

Nice rush by Helm, until he shot it right into Holtby’s chest.  I guess that’s better than missing the net all together though.

Fuch off about Nyquist should have gotten 10 you clown.  Make a comment on the DoPS doing a bad job all year, then maybe I’ll care what you have to say.

Just no reason for Vanek to try to make a cute pass through someone.  Not when there’s not a defenseman behind him

Hope the intermission stops the Caps momentum.

Giving them another power play. That’s awesome.
