Caps Back Above .500

I have missed a few games, things in Puckhead's life have priority right now. But I wanted to get a quick post on just so the 3 people that read my blog know that I am okay.

Caps played a great game against Atlanta. Alex Semin was on a mission in this game, scraping it up with Marian Hossa and scoring two including the OT winner. Semin was all over the ice and it's a great to see the winger sort of ramp up his game.

Olie Kolzig was in-another-world good. Kolzig played about the best I have seen him play all year. It's too bad he didn't get the votes to be in the top 3 for the All Star game, because right now he is in the top three in the league. His stats may not be the best in the league, but he has been solid all season long and getting better, not just hot in the last 10 games or so.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Shaone Morrisonn for putting Glen Metropolit on his butt. I have been waiting for someone to stand him up just once after he made his lucky bounce goal he scored against the Caps a few weeks ago seem like it was a beautiful goal that beat Kolzig. He did however score on a juicy rebound by the Caps netminder.

Caps find their winning ways and did it against the top team in the Southeast. Not only are the Caps 11 games better than a year ago, they are looking for more. Glen Hanlon has the boys hungry not just to win, but win every night.

Caps face the Flyers Tuesday night, and I should be able to get a normal post in. Capitals need to keep this confidence game up.
