Teddy Sears - A Painful Loss

Blog 14 - Thursday, May 14

There's not too much I can say that hasn't already been said about this series. If you watched last night’s game you heard the commentators say it all: The Caps just didn't come to play. For a team as good as The Caps, to have scratched their way to a Game 7, (though an overtime goal in Game 3 would have changed everything), they simply didn't have it together. They were outplayed in every way. Not much more I can say about this. It just hurts.

To lose in Game 7 is always hard, but to lose to the Penguins, by four goals, is devastating. I share the sentiment of the fans that were there in the arena last night, who, with 4 minutes to go, began shouting "Let's Go Caps" with a renewed enthusiasm and plenty of heart. It became clear to me in that moment that hockey has returned to Washington, and The Caps have awakened and invigorated a legion of fans, old and new, who look forward to standing with them next season, and shouting-- "Let's Go Caps."

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
