Caps win in OT!

I think you could effectively sum up any part of tonight's game with the following phrase: "Are you kidding me?"

It could have been uttered after Nash's 3-on-5 breakaway. It could have been said after the referee tripped up Morrisonn on the goal that put Columbus up by one in the third. And it definitely could have been yelled in disbelief as Alex Ovechkin scored his second of the night in game-winning overtime fashion.

I couldn't help but feel bad for the referee, Bill McCreary, he certainly didn't mean it. But, boy, what a tough break for Morrisonn. It's tough to defend against Rick Nash and even tougher to do so with an injured foot....let alone having to do so with an injured foot and a REFEREE TACKLING YOU!! Still, just one of those tough breaks....McCreary seems like a great referee from what I've seen.

The Caps definitely deserved the two points tonight, and it would have been a shame if they left with anything less. Congrats to the team on a spectacular effort--this fan certainly appreciated it!
