How are you spending your weekend?

It’s the weekend, and how about that Marc-Andre Fleury last night huh? (Note: actually writing this on Friday so I don’t know how he did in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals but it could apply either way, right?)

Ready for Capitals/Lightning tonight in a pivotal Game 5? Can the home team finally win a game in this series? Hopefully so. The Tampa power play is fun to watch, one random, probably inconsequential thing I’ve noticed is how much better they are at winning back pucks in the zone than the Penguins are. They seem a bit more relentless, where as the Pens usually hang back. And it’s so, so fitting that Washington fans get to be tormented by a guy sitting in the left circle with a wicked shot just waiting to unleash it and you can’t stop it. Old Stammer is on fire.

So enjoy the hockey and discuss the happenings below. Also come back tomorrow for an article I had fun writing that will be sure to generate debate and have input requested from readers.
