Bonino gets the game winner in a fantastic game one.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Pittsburgh Penguins at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs are gone, so that means the Bitter Bandwagoner Habs fan has returned. That means I’ll be writing TSMs for whichever games I happen to watch. Get ready for a lot of Anaheim and Pittsburgh/Washington. Mostly because I refuse to acknowledge the existence of a certain Canadian team. There’s only one game tonight, right guys?

RIGHT???

If your answer was anything other than yes, or right, you’re wrong.

Petty? Me? Never.

Washington vs Pittsburgh

First Period

  • Sid vs Ovi, Eller playing in round two, this is gonna be good. Only, I have no idea which jersey to wear...
  • I have no idea who I’m rooting for.
  • Holtby and Fleury looking pretty sharp so far.
  • Who was I kidding, of course I’m wearing the Eller Habs jersey.
  • Oh dear...Washington only has two shots. That’s not at all concerning.
  • That was a very, very nice shift by Larry.
  • HOW DID NONE OF THOSE GO IN. AHHHHH!!
  • This game might not be quite as entertaining as the Oilers/Ducks game. On the other hand, so much skill.

Second Period

  • Oh my god Sid.
  • OH MY GOD SID.
  • I take it all back. All of it. This is not boring at all. Sidney Crosby singlehandedly making this game interesting again.
  • I love Sid a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. He’s just SO. GOOD.
  • Give me a hat trick. Give it to me now.
  • Also, Holtby not looking quite so sharp after that...
  • The Eller line seems to have had quite a number of shifts in the offensive zone!
  • ELLER TO OVI. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!
  • Boy, the captains came to play!
  • Aaaaand we have a crazy scrum now! Everyone has a partner.

Third Period

  • ELLER IS CENTRING OVI!! I REPEAT, ELLER IS CENTRING OVI!!!!!
  • Ok, it lasted one shift, BUT STILL.
  • Also, Eller is having a very, very game, AND IS GETTING CREDIT FOR IT. It’s so beautiful.
  • I still really want a Crosby hat trick. Though not when Eller’s the centreman facing off against him...
  • Tie game Kuzy!!!!
  • Oh man this game got so much fun.
  • BONINO, BONINO, BONINO!!!!!!!
  • I do not know what Orpik was doing, but it was not good.
  • OOoooh The Caps fans are not happy with the refs right now.
  • Malkin, Kessel, Crosby on the power play. That’s just not fair.
  • Oh. My. Goodness. What a wild scramble! I can’t believe nothing went in there either. Fleury. Good lord. That was insane.
  • Fleury definitely looked better than Holtby in that game.
  • Pens win 3-2!

Highlight of the Game

The Captain came to play.
