An ugly start to a season with high expectations
I said in an earlier post that Jose Theodore was the big unknown going into this season for the Caps and I've never been a fan of his after watching him in Colorado. Many Caps fans on the message boards wanted those of us who weren't optimistic to give him a chance. Well, in his chance last night against the Atlanta Thrashers, Theodore got pulled after letting in 4 goals. Then, Brent Johnson looked strong for a short while until he let in 3 more goals that led to a 7-4 loss for the Capitals. Ladies & gentlemen, it's going to be a looooong season.
The good parts of the game -
- Mike Green's two goals during a 4 minute power play. He had a 3 point night and looks good.
- Alexander Semin looked awesome, playing with some grit like he did in the playoffs, and getting 1 goal and 2 assists.
Yes, I'm a seriously depressed Caps fan this morning and I can only hope they play better tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Let's go Cap!
