Curtis Joseph has just been pulled, a little more than 11 minutes into the first period, and replaced by Manny Legace. Why?
Because he let the worst team in the league (statistically and, pretty much, widely recognized), the Washington Capitals, score three goals in that time span. Jagr has a goal and an assist, as does Lang (fucker!). Gonchar has two assists, and Bondra got his 800th career point on a goal assisted by Zubrus.
Granted, the Red Wings aren’t doing too well this year (compared to, say, the Lightning) but they’re still in the top half of the league. What the ever-loving fuck is going on with the Caps?! Up is down, right is left, the Caps don’t suck… in bizarro world.
