No “Pity Party” for Kolzig

From the AP via Sports Illustrated,

“I’ve had a good run here,’’ Kolzig said Thursday. “And I hope it continues in the next two months.’‘

In other words, until the playoffs are over. After that, Kolzig will become a free agent, presenting an understandably murky future for a 38-year-old goalie who lost his starting job just as the Capitals were becoming good again.

“The worst thing I can do is have a pity party,’’ Kolzig said. “I’m not really going to talk about the situation until the end of the year, but it is what it is and I’ve come to grips with it.’‘

Kolzig has been supplanted by Cristobal Huet, acquired from Montreal at the trade deadline.
