Hurting In Washington

from Ted Leonsis of Ted's Take,

This loss hurts. I thought we had the pieces in place to win the Cup. We didn’t make enough plays at critical times. Congratulations to the Penguins – they overcame adversity and made more plays when it counted most.

I feel awful – almost numb, yet frustrated. I know many of our fans – locally and around the world – feel the same way. Sports teams impact the psyche of a city, and I feel terrible that we have let you down.

Our fans are incredible, and they certainly make Verizon Center a special place. It’s red. It’s loud. It’s respectful. It’s fun. They demonstrate such affection for our team and players and are extremely supportive of what we are attempting to accomplish on and off the ice. Thank you. We feel your love, and we share your pain.
