It Is "Over" Time for the Caps

Who thought they would get to see Jose Threeormore in the game? I would bet that even he did not think that he would see any meaningful ice time.

I am sure that there is a great future for the Caps. Just add a few big, real defensemen and Varly would move another step towards unbeatable. 

But for this night, it is not about the future as much as it is that this game was over way too early. Talk about picking the wrong time to not show up, wow. 

Three goals seemed like too many to be down. Then four, and at last five. At four, it seemed "over" time. It was too much for Varlamov; too many shots, too many turnovers, and at last, too many goals.

Pittsburgh came to play, the Caps came to watch. I guess they took the phrase "must watch game" too literally. 

It will be fun to guess who will stay and who will go, who can be signed to play defense, and who will be sent away for being one-dimensional. 

On this night, the Capitals did not find some gut wrenching, heart stopping, dry-mouthed way to lose. At least one can be thankful for that.
