So, this is what happens when you poke the bear with a sharp stick. You get mauled. Badly. Maybe critically.
Now, this bear of which we speak, the Washington Capitals, may not have had lights-out goaltending and may have looked a little like a pack of puppies running in a park on defense, but my goodness can they light it up.
The Caps gave up goals on the first two shots the Montreal Canadiens took in Saturday's Game 2.
