caitlin: A few thoughts

The Washington Capitals -

From having read the scoresheets and seen the highlight footage, I think that in their last 2 games, IMO, the Ottawa Senators have forgotten to do one thing:

Shut down Alexander Ovechkin.

They are not the first team to do it this season and they will not be the last.

+++++

The Winter Classic (AKA: Penguins vs. Sabres outside in Buffalo in January)

- Sidney Crosby looked like an overgrown TimBit during the game from pictures I saw.

- Ryan Miller wore something on his head on top of his mask that looked like it might have started life as a hockey sock. (no, I'm not kidding)

- It looked like fun for both teams, and looked warmer than the Heritage Classic a few years ago.

+++++

Random (although people who know me will know what I'm talking about. =D)

- There is a personal scoring contest in the NHL between two former teammates that started when they were still teammates. Judging by recent results, it is still so ON. =D
