is our bright spot.

She doesn’t know the sad, tragic history of the Caps. She doesn’t know she’s about to witness yet another devastating, heartbreaking playoff loss. She doesn’t know we gave Brooks Orpik a ginormous contract to be a human traffic cone. She doesn’t know Vrana was inexcusably scratched last night. She doesn’t know about when we lost to the 8 seed Habs, the 2nd round exists to the Pens and Rangers, or when Esa Tikkanen missed that open net. Nope. She got a puck and is now a hockey fan for life. Unfortunately she is now a Caps fan for life, but a hockey fan for life nonetheless. And who knows, maybe by the time she’s an adult, the Caps will have put together one team that can win a meaningful playoff series. Wouldn’t that be something?
