The web was quite the entertaining place following the Caps game 5 loss on Friday night. Reactions were wide ranging, from the level-headed to the inane. Lets take a look at some of the post-game fodder, shall we?
To start, this CSN pole was frankly depressing, and left me disappointed. Come on Caps fans, really?
Some of the irrational, frankly hilarious rhetoric across the web following the loss:

Seriously. Can the #caps just cut the entire fucking team and start over? There’s too much bad history with this team. They are shit.

The fact of the matter is, history had no bearing on a game being played on a sheet of ice at 7th and F Street tonight. I’m glad these guys are the ones that will actually decide the next game:
Trotz on past playoffs: “[The past] doesn’t really matter. Everyone talks about the past. The only pressure we will have is on ourselves.”

Asked Karl Alzner if bringing up Caps’ playoff history is fair. He said this Caps team doesn’t have any playoff history together.
