Caps vs. Penguin Scum 3-9-3008 Wrap Up

The Local Yokels:

(Com)Post. Times. Caps.com.

The Neutral Observers:

NHL.com AP Wire.

The Other Side:

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Nicklas Backstrom wins it, Caps bad luck. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Caps blow it, traveling road show.

Final Thoughts:

To their credit, the Pittsburgh media certainly understands something that most of the idiot Penguin Scum fanbase (a good portion of which lives in the D.C. Metro Area, including that scuzzy suburb Bhawlmuher because of the great quality of life in Pittsburgh, why else has the Penguin Scum franchise gone into bankruptcy twice?) cannot grasp is that the Penguin Scum did not win yesterday's game as much as the Caps lost it. Compare that to the stories coming from the Boston media where you got the impression that the Bruins played great throughout and persevered against a Caps team trying to rough them up. Just remind any strutting Penguin Scum fan today that all three goals (a deflection of a backchecking forward's stick which knuckle balled the shot, a rebound off a defenseman in front which lands cleanly on the forward's stick, and of course the own goal) were executed exactly as drawn up on the chalkboard. No, it won't do any good but when even their own media wonders why the stars align in their favor way more often than not, it vindicated what we've known for so long. They aren't always better but something fluky always happens against these guys that costs us the game.

70 down, 12 to go.
