What she means:
“Okay listen, the show Freaks and Geeks was really great, it was funny and well cast and it let you really get to know and love the characters as though they’re your friends too and not just part of some tv series, the show really had some depth to it and the characters went through stuff we can all relate to, it wasn’t just some cliché high school show either, there were cheesy moments but that happens in real life too, the show was way ahead of its time and I can’t believe there’s only 18 episodes, how can you cancel such a great show after only one season?”
Shootout King TJ Oshie decided to give us an encore of the 2014 Olympics with this shootout goal against Bobrovsky. To date, the Caps have won 2 out of 7 shootouts, Oshie has participated in all but one (injury), and has made 4 out of 6 shootout goals.
It’s been awhile since we had an OT winner. I covered most of them in the last post. But the latest addition was from my love Nicklas Backstrom, the true MVP. It was so pretty and I cried about this for awhile after it happened cause I love Nicky a lot.
Personally, I believe that shorthanded goals are more exciting than powerplay goals because they don’t happen as often and are really sweet. Daniel Winnik had a really pretty one to add to the other ones this year.
TJ Oshie scored two goals early and then threw an alley-oop shot to the empty net to finish the hat trick. It was his first official hat trick as a Cap (cause evidently playoff hat tricks don’t count in official stats).
I can’t believe I forgot this one in my other lists. Jakub Vrana is such a cutie, and one of these days he’s going to be a goal-scoring machine. I was so happy when he got his first in the big leagues.
God bless our sweet young giraffe. I rooted for him so hard in his first stint, but he just couldn’t break through. Turns out he couldn’t have picked a better time to get that first career goal. He put the Caps up late in an incredibly exciting game, and I think I might have cried actual tears of joy. And now he’s gone. I miss him so so much and I hope the Blues are treating him well. I think he’s doing really well in St. Louis so I’m happy for him but I also miss him a lot.
