A no-point night: Blackhawks 5 - Caps 0

You see that smoldering pile of ashes in the corner?

Yeah, that one.

That would be the game film of this one, burned into a heap.

A screen (Jason Williams setting up to deflect a drive out of mid air), a scrum (three Blackhawks crashing the net on a power play, Jonathan Toews stuffing the puck in), and a scream (a rocket from Yanic Perreault over Olaf Kolzig’s glove), and the competitive portion of the evening was over barely nine minutes into the game.

And that was that…the rest is details. Details not really worth chewing again, except to say that there was nothing good to say about anyone in this one…

I think it's just about "Code Orange" time, Peerless.

I don't know Billy, the Caps are only two points out of 8th place (with Philly having a game in hand) but Washington should be able to feast down the stretch on the little sisters (Tampa, Atlanta) who can't seem to beat anyone right now.

Last night was a blow, but not a fatal one just yet.

The only "fatal" one, until such time that the Caps might be eliminated, would be a loss to Carolina, if only because for the last several weeks, that's the team everything's been pointing to.
