Coming full circle

It seems fitting that the Caps moved into first place tonight in the SE Division by winning a 4-3 game against the Flyers. Bruce Boudreau, who intiated the Caps resurgence after his Thanksgiving Day promotion from Hershey, led this team to a 4-3 win versus the Flyers during is first game behind the bench.

From Ovie after that first win under BB:

This win was very important for us because of the hard situation for our team."
More to come tomorrow, but for tonight, I'm just enjoying the Caps perch.



1) Congrats Caps fans. Never saw this coming. At best we figured a .500 finish would have been a great rebound with how things started for you guys!
2) Even if you fall back, its a great feat to have even made it to the top this late!
3) Makes tomorrow night's game the first time in a long time that the caps will be fighting for something real this late at home. You going?

I agree -- after the way that this team played under Hanlon, I would never have guessed that they would be on top of the SE! I think the Canes are having a bit of panic attack -- they now have three teams nipping right at their heels.

Will be at the game on Friday...will there be an FR sighting?
