Capital Showdown

Alright, ladies, it's time to get pumped up - tonight is Round 2 of the nation's capital tilt here in the US capital featuring, well, the Capitals...

Oh, yeah, and the Senators. Sorry. It just didn't sound as funny.

The Caps took game 1 of the season set in a thrilling OT victory a month ago. Great game - funny story of the night, we had two Sens fans sitting next to us who wore paper bags over their heads...during the entire game. Now that's commitment. Anyways, something tells me they will be sans bags tonight, as Ottawa comes in red hot with wins in 9 of their last 11 and 4 straight.

Okay, not bad. But the Caps are on a bit of a hot streak themselves, with wins in 3 straight and looking for their longest winning streak since January of last year...actually, maybe I shouldn't share that little tidbit - it looks even sadder here.

So anyways - Ottawa fans, Caps fans and just plain hockey fans (at least those in Canada who will be able to view this nationally-televised matchup on TSN, you lucky dogs), I'd tune in for this one, it should be a good one. I was lucky enough to be invited by my stepmother to attend with her, so if you catch a shot of two lunatics screaming and jumping around about 11 rows behind the penalty boxes, well, that's us.

May the best capital win!

Ah lunatic spotting, the favourite North American pasttime.

Good luck to both teams! (but I slightly want the Caps to win. Division issues. You know the drill).

Caps took care of that one for you, least the Habs picked up a point on the Sens last night, right?
