Here your NHL Rooting Instructions for Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Please see my post of April 3 ("Who Should You Be Pulling For Tonight? The Situational NHL Rooting Guide for Caps Fans") for further explanation of my "Rooting Rules"):

(More after the jump)

DET (99 points) vs. STL (106 points): This one could be an epic tilt and is being touted by some analysts as a preview of the Western Conference Final. I'm gonna have to violate RULE 3 and go with the Blues on this one, because they enter tonight's contest with a game in hand over both the Rangers and the Canucks, and thus have a chance to beat out the despised Rangers for the President's Trophy (RULE 6). GO BLUES!

TBL (81 points) vs. MTL (73 points): How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways... This particular match-up has no direct implications for the Caps because both teams have been mathematically eliminated. So it all comes down to a question of whom do we hate more? Is it MTL (RULE 6)--who embarrassed the Caps in the ‘09-'10 post-season (a time many feel was the Caps' best chance in recent memory to win a Cup)? Or is it TBL (RULE 4) who swept the Caps after they finally got the Game-7 Monkey off their backs against the Rangers last playoffs--to say nothing of adding unnecessary stress to our lives two nights ago?

Decisions, decisions...GO DOUBLE FORFEIT/SALMONELLA OUTBREAK/ARENA COLLAPSE/ALL OF THE ABOVE!

Have Fun, folks--LET'S GO CAPS!!!
