First a little note about the lack of posting last night. I was the victim of a surprise birthday party and was told, no work all play.
So instead of doing what I was supposed to do last night, I sit here at 5:00am to catch-up.
There was no penalty on the play and no update on Neal post-game.
Tempers were getting a little high last night too, watch below as Matt Cooke does some back and forth chirping with the Rangers.
The Rangers defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 in a close checking game.
The refs let the boys play and play they did. Both teams gave it their best but the Rangers were a little better tonight.
Here’s the game-winning goal by Michael Del Zotto.

Emotions were running high as the Oshawa Generals parted ways with John Tavares and Michael Del Zotto during a Friday press conference at the General Motors Centre.
Del Zotto, a surprise addition to the blockbuster deal with the London Knights completed the night before, was particularly outward in his emotions, with tears visible in his eyes from the outset and spilling over at one point.
Tavares, long rumoured to be headed west, was better able to contain his feelings, but looked as though he had little sleep and was much more subdued than usual.
