Caps' Fans React To Knuble's Shootout Winner

While Penguins fans are unhappy with the outcome tonight, it's seen as a mission accomplished in the Nation's Capital. Fans are obviously pleased tonight, especially with the way their team prevailed in a playoff-like atmosphere.

Here's SBN's Japers' Rink:

Challenge accepted and met.  Well, sort of.  It was a playoff-style game.  Tight checking, sharp netminding, heavy hits, all in a raucous home building.  Unfortunately, not ended in playoff-style.  A bit deflating to have to go through the shootout motions after this exhaustive affair.  But, nevertheless, the Washington Capitals have now matched their franchise season-best points record of 108 and, further, breaking the records of home wins and total wins (30 and 50, respectively) is still within reach. 

Oh yeah, and three up and three down for the Pens against the Caps this season.  For what that's worth.  Actually, to know that (a now precious few) Pittsburgh supporters have left the D.C. barn despondent again this season is still worth quite a bit.
