  3. first period ends 2-1 Caps, but the Pens are on the PP

    ReplyDelete
  4. 2-1 Capitals after 1. And to think that Pittsburgh dominated them for most of the period. Should be a good, long series.

  13. 2-2 after 2 from the Verizon Center.

  14. i left hockey after the lockout and i only started watching again after channel surfing last new years and stumbling on the PIT-BUF winter classic and just marveling at Emrick's just absolute joy of being there, so different than a Joe Buck...and the Caps run at the end of last season helped

  15. OT, but i've got a little coin on Papa Clem to win the Kentucky Derby today

  16. "One last piece of advice for the Capitals, don't wake up Malkin..." - Mike Milbury
    "And now we'll send it to a guy who is always awake, Doc Emrick!" - Pierre McGuire

    Okaaaayyy.....

    And Doc Emrick is the man. He's the only good national TV American hockey announcer and he's one of the best there is in all sports. Period.

  27. sorry for taking over your thread

    ReplyDelete
  28. You are fine. If the TV in my room was working, I'd be posting more as well, but instead, when I want to type something, I have to get up and leave, hence the thanks for remembering Doc's jab at tOSU.

    ReplyDelete
