Heartbreak in the District

The Capitals blew another huge series lead and the season is over.  The Caps were up three games to one and let it slip away.  The heartbreak at home was magnified at Verizon Center.

“Speechless,” said Don Saum, game 7 attendee.  “Every year is a new heartbreak with this team.  The building was silent most of the game and we all just sat there looking into space after the game.  I just can’t even believe it.”

Not even the countless blown series leads against the hated Penguins can compare to this.  The Caps won their first ever Presidents Trophy for most points in the regular season and it was all for nothing.

“I would like to have hope for next year,” said Saum.  “I just can’t must any enthusiasm.  This was the best team in the history of the franchise and look what happened.”
