Some thoughts on the Caps and Tampa...
- Congrats to Mike Green on his record. Dare I say it? NORRIS! NORRIS! NORRIS!
- Michal Neuvirth had a great game. Too bad he couldn't get the shutout, but he certainly made an impression.
- Speaking of rookie goalies, it's nice to have a predicament where you have two up-and- comers in Simeon Varlamov and Neuvirth.
- The F-line (Flash, Fehr, Fedorov) continues to work hard and get results.
- Tampa Bay could be a great team in a few years. Neuvirth's win didn't come against a "bad" team, but rather a good one in a state of utter choas. (See Ownership blunders)
- The Capitals dominated the Bolts throughout the game. Let's hope they can keep this momentum as they now face a tough string of opponents in Florida, Montreal and Colorado.

Moving on up!
Mike Green is now tied for ninth with Robert Picard for the Capitals all-time goal-scoring leaders for defensemen.
David Booth goes to Coldstone...
Remember that terrible "Panthers go to Panera" video I posted back in December? Well, here's the sequel.
LET'S GO CAPS!
