The Washington Capitals are the Southeast Division Champions of the National Hockey League!
Tomas Fleischmann, Sergei Federov, and Alexander Semin scored the three goals for our boys; Semin's slapshot for the insurance goal was a thing of beauty! So thank you, Florida Panthers, for beating the Carolina Hurricanes and for losing to US!
So now we're in the Stanley Cup playoffs! It's the Caps first appearance since 2001-2002. The first round starts next week; we'll probably play the Ottawa Senators. I will have to see about a friendly wager between my pal Jamie, who hails from Ottawa. Hmm -- perhaps he would be willing to put up some Timbits against some Munchkins? I shall have to think about this.
Meanwhile, I have already purchased our tickets to Game One.
Oh, take me where the hockey players
Face off down the rink!
And the Stanley Cup is all filled up
For the Champs who win the drink.
With a final flick of a hockey stick
And one gigantic scream --
THE PUCK IS IN! THE CAPITALS WIN
The Good Old Hockey Game!
