Oh that's right. I forgot about the fan mix down your way (probably more about the Hershey Bears connection than the actual Caps, but still). I hope you get to laugh. That laugh will last until your friends remind you you're a Flyers' fan.
Objectively, that's hard to argue. I want to call an upset, though, so this and Colorado/Calgary are my upsets.
I think the Caps have some weakness, but it's going to take a Canes team--especially the goalies--to play over their heads mixed with some luck. But I think they pull it off. At the very least, I'm cheering for Brind'amour.
This, teen girl Mojo always makes fun of me by asking about Dmitri Orlov " we used to cheer for that guy at Hershey and now he sucks right? oh wait that was Burakovsky" then she goes on to say something derogatory about russian players... she makes me so proud.
( I know Burakovsky isn't russian)
