There is no shortage of opinions stemming from last night's embarrassment of the mighty Capitals. I can only hope that the Leafs have saved some of their David vs. Goliath routine for the upcoming game against Pittsburgh, because I don't want to read this many game recaps' worth of weeping.

On the other hand, I have no trouble reading about the suffering fans of other defeated teams. The folks over at Japers' Rink are a sharp bunch, and their recap is as good as any:

When the Leafs scored early in the third to cut the three-goal lead to two, it instantly brought back flashbacks of the last time these two teams met - when the Caps held a 4-1 lead and then simply stopped skating, allowing a relatively anemic Toronto offense to claw back into the game and force overtime and then a shootout. It's a memory that is still fresh for a lot of us, and you'd think would still be fresh for the Caps.

Spoiler: if you read their comments, there's a lot of anger. PPP and nhlcheapshot were over there for a while smoothing things over.
