Thanks for the ride Caps

Last night's 3-2 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 7 was a heart breaker for Caps fans. And, I'm not going to complain about the officiating because it's a waste of time. Bad calls have been made (or not been made as the case may be) on both teams throughout this series. What I will dwell on is this...the Caps provided us fans with a glorious roller coaster ride for the last two months from the depths of despair in November to a SE Division Championship banner and the right to play in the playoffs for the first time in five years.

They came back from being down 3-1 in the series to tie it up and force a game 7. The young guys found out how to play playoff hockey by the 4th game of the series and that is something they can take into the offseason and build on next year.

My only hope at the onset of the season was that they would make the playoffs. They did and they proved that the Caps are going to be a fun team to watch for many years to come.

Here's to next season.

Let's go Caps!
