Thursday Roundup/Caps 3, Thrashers 2

[SeSo Open Thread - NHL.com Recap]

I'm having some difficulty this morning. I can't decide which is my favorite quote from Tarik's recap of last night's game:

"Today, the Thrashers see a good team -- the Capitals." - Alex Ovechkin

OR

"They did the right things and worked us." - Andy Sutton

A big game from AO, a big game from Muffins and a big game from Johnnie. The Caps are doing a great job of making chicken soup from chicken poop down the stretch and have the chance to end the season on a real high note with a win against Buffalo on Saturday.

By my math, if Olie Kolzig can give up one goal or less on Saturday, his goals against average for the year will end up below 3.00. If he gives up two goals in 60 or more minutes, he'll end up sub-three, but if he gives up a pair in 59 minutes or fewer, he'll be at three. Yes, it's that close.

Finally, everyone should read Vogel's post on Steve Eminger, and by "everyone" I mean everyone - Rink readers, Caps management, hockey fans, Dick Cheney, Jessica Alba... everyone.
