Bandwagon Open Thread: Mid Week Edition

I take it enough of you survived Taco Tuesday and Drinko De Mayo. Which is rad because we have two game lined up tonight. So let's get to it shall we?

WASHINGTON @ PITTSBURGH 7 PM EST VERSUS CBC RDS. The Caps are up 2 games on the Pens with game three tonight at Mellon. The last game saw a hat trick for Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby as well. Now there are ads more aggressively promoting this so called rivalry, much to the chagrin of the Cros and Ovie. They'd perfer the reporters stop asking about it and consider the other players on the teams, but I don't see that happening. The last game Marc Andre Fleury was scattered and not in typical form and Simeon Varlamov was rather zen and composed. It will be interesting if the Pens will bring the ruckus tonight...

BOSTON @ CAROLINA 7:30 PM EST VERSUS RIS TSN NESN. The Canes have been a scrappy bunch facing the Bruins. Chad Larose tried to take one Zdeno Chara and really, I give him points for effort for the totally obvious size difference. Cam Ward did what a fantastic goalie should do, which is anything possible to keep the puck out of the net including breakdancing moves. The Canes shutout the Bruins 3-0 even with that whole "was it a goal or not, probably yes" thing. Also, I wish LaRose was mic'd up. Because he is hysterical. Hrm, something is missing....Lucic Lust! There we go. Game preview complete.
