Saturday Night Live (SNL) opened this week’s show last night with a hilarious in-depth look at #DeflateGate, with a brand new Bill Belichick press conference in which the Coach continues to throw his star QB Tom Brady under the bus.
I have been sick as a dog the last couple of days but, nothing would be able to keep me from watching the 2015 Winter Classic and what a classic it was. The Washington Capitals held on to beat the Chicago Blackhawks on Troy Brouwer’s goal in the game’s final seconds. Get the recap at this link and watch the highlights above. A GREAT win that the team can build off of.
The Washington Capitals, looking to continue their season on a positive note before the Winter Classic, looked flat for the first two+ periods last night against the New York Islanders (see video highlights above).
The Caps turned it on midway through the third to make what should have been an easy victory for the Isles into a close one. Sadly, Kuznetzov committed a serious high sticking penalty at the end of regulation that the Caps couldn’t overcome. One thing I noticed about the Islanders is they are real quick and skate really, really well. Kudos on the Caps for making it a close one.
