We don't think anybody who followed this team this season was in the least bit surprised by the injury list partially revealed after the game last night. Looking at three of those four names, A. O., Alexander "Slappy" Semin , and Mike "BEAM ME UP" Green; you really get a sense of just how hard and how well the Caps played just to keep up with the Penguin Scum. Had those guys been out of the lineup for this series (throw in Tom Poti for good measure after Game 1) like they should have been under normal circumstance; this series would have been over a lot sooner. If you don't understand now who the better team really is, then you never will.
As for the real nattering nabobs of negativism, no longer can they say with any credibility that the Caps are not built for the playoffs or that certain key players are soft.
So Penguin Scum fans, thanks for stopping on by. Go out and do your little superiority dance like you did after the joke that was the Super Bowl. We don't expect any less out of you people.
