The Caps lost a disappointing game last night, Zubrus is hurt, Ovechkin fired his agent and the defending Champs come calling tomorrow night. And it's raining (or at least it's going to). All in all, not a great day in Capland. On the plus side, I did get to meet Rink reader KB last night and he bought me a beer, so cheers to that.
As always, check out Washington Hockey Daily to see what everyone else is saying about last night's game (unfortunately, I don't have the time to recap it myself this morning).
