So Game 5 of the Western finals, which has become a penalty-laden free for all for the frustrated young Blackhawks, goes down tonight. The Red Wings may again be without the services of Pavel Datsyuk and Nick Lidstrom due to injuries. This team is crazy deep in talent, so their absences didn't affect the team's ability to win in the last game. Is it just me (HM stifles huge yawn) - or is anyone else getting bored of the Wings/Pens potential match up?
On to some wild and wacky Caps rumblings:
- Some drug-dealing doofus in Florida was busted and claims to have sold performance-enhancing drugs to the Washington Capitals and the Washington Nationals. I have my own thoughts on this one. First, in the time that I've been following hockey, steroids have not been associated with the NHL, for one because the players need to be fast not bulked up. Secondly, dude - if the any of the Nats are using roids, then why are they so terrible? Of course, we'll keep you posted on the latest but for now I'm throwing down the "bs" flag on any Caps association.
- TSN is reporting that another Capital may be headed home. Russian big rig Viktor Kozlov has reportedly signed a 2-year contract with a KHL team, but this has not yet been confirmed. Again, stay tuned...
Who said the off-season was dull? My big dilemma now is who in the sam-harry-hell to root for in the Cup Finals should (or make that "when") Detroit clinch a spot?
