Thursday Roundup/Caps 6 Sens 2

[ Recap - Postgame]

Hey all. Last night was a blast, not only watching the Caps trounce Los Senatores, but getting the opportunity to blog the game for Off Wing Opinion. Check it out for all of my in-game and post-game thoughts (still more coming this morning, perhaps). I also wanted to take a second to thank Ellen and Kate, the Off Wing photographers for helping me find my way last night, and also Mike Vogel for his kind words and conversation. I look forward to doing it again sometime soon.

And now, your Caps stat of the day, from the Elias Sports Bureau:
With a 6-2 decision over Ottawa, the Capitals have won four consecutive games and scored at least four goals in each. (The previous wins were 5-2 at Tampa Bay, 4-3 vs. Dallas, and 7-4 vs. Buffalo.) It's the longest such streak for the Caps since they won five straight games in that manner in March 2001.

As The Peerless points out, zero hits for AO last night. Message received? Anomoly? You decide.

Personally, I thought the dude was flying out there and will chalk the lack of statistically-evidenced physical play up to fluke. But it'll be interesting to watch for in upcoming games.

1) He may not have been credited with a 'hit', but he was NOT shying away from physical play. He did throw a couple of light checks (for him)
2) He looked as good as he has all year last night. Almost completing a couple of high lite reel goals, in addition to his 3 helpers
