If you ever attended an NHL game, the skating is fast and furious as it should be for professional hockey players. And one would think that high intensity of play would be sound for 82 games of the regular season, and it usually is (especially playing a conference nemesis). But as I have addressed in previous years' blog posts during the NHL run for the Stanley Cup playoff games, the intensity goes way up - several notches - and play is very exciting and lightning fast each minute of the period. Of course, being a Washington CAPS fan, I am all in cheering them on through this first playoff round against the Toronto Mapleleafs. It truly amazes me how fast they skate and stretch for every puck during playoffs...like the season just got started (the warm up was the regular season!).
Go CAPS! CAPS! CAPS!
