Greetings Hockey Fans Well the second season is primed to start. I’m writing today to post notice to the Eastern Conference what was witnessed last night. All of the Capital Fans will know what I mean. The Washington Capitals turned on their “We’re Going To Win” switch last night and it will stay on until they win “The Cup”. Last night against the New York Rangers, the Washington Capitals won the game in a convincing fashion. It only took 32 seconds into the game for Alex Ovechkin to assert himself as a force and lead his Caps to take control of the game. Less than 3 minutes into the game, Mathieu Perreault scored the Caps second goal. This was 2 goals against New York Goalie, Henrik Lunqvist. Throughout the season this was a rare scene to the New York faithful. Of course this is what the Washington Capitals Fans expect. We here in Washington DC know that the Caps own the Rangers. A Co-worker of mine who is a Rangers Fan told me that the one thing he doesn’t want to see is the Rang ...
