The Triple P rides into the sunset....for 2021 anyway. Joined by the always able and willing Mrs. Blueliner, we wrap up the season with some bad (The Ol' Trotz debate) and some good (shouts to good friends of the show, old and new).

Christian Levesque leaves some points to ponder and we go over some possible moves to consider in the offseason as well as the ins and outs of the upcoming Expansion draft.

Thanks to you, all of our loyal listeners and Caps fans for making 2021 our biggest ever. See you next season. Keep the faith and LET'S GO CAPS!!!

Blueliner rides solo on this one...

In this edition of the Podcast we present the story of a truly awesome Caps fan, Bryce Jurkovac. First we go over how he got started as a fan of both hockey in general and the Caps. Bryce then goes over his military career which involved some dangerous work the likes of which aren't usually discussed in open company in great detail.

We then discuss his life after the service which ultimately led him to combine the family he had come to know and be a part of in the US Army and the sport he had come to love in his youth--the Warriors Hockey team. We discuss how he got his start there and what the team has come to represent. And the service the continue to provide when they play for both disabled Veterans as well as the hockey community.

Finally....the story of how Anna does what she does so well....reach out to people in need.

Find out more about both the Lonestar Warriors as well as the DC Warriors

Anna the Mermaid and I take time to recall the last game Our Washington Capitals will have played...until next season. We all know what went wrong by now, don't we? And I finally reveal the major roster change the Caps MUST make before too long in order to continue to contend.

Easily the toughest week of the season has come and gone....Our Caps are bruised, battered but not completely beaten as yet.

Anna and I put out our frustrations in a direct, honest and yet hopefully humorous way...because we know how you the Caps fans feels right about now. To aid us in this endeavor we are joined by friend of the show Josh Kirby of the Josh Kirby on Sports Podcast who helps us not only to vent but take another look at things in a certain perspective.

To be sure it's still OK to believe....even though things look dire.

Anna and I begin this week's show by recapping the regular season finale as well as the thrilling Playoff opener against the Bruins.

Ring the bell, school is in session. Except there's a new tutor in town...

Blake Allen of the Chirpin' DMV Podcast joins us to teach us all about Hockey Analytics. Some would call these Advanced stats. Some call it Moneypuck. However you see it, we guarantee you will become a better hockey fan for it.

Blake goes over what they are and in depth two of the more telling metrics--specifically Corsi and Expected Goals. Educational you say?  Maybe. But only if you learn something...

Programming note: the Sports on the Hill Podcast will air live this week Tuesday at 9 pm over both Facebook live and the TRU Radio Network due to Game 2 taking place Monday. Catch Anna for Caps talk in the first segment.

The Mermaid is off for the week...the Seamstress for the Band aka Mrs. Blueliner fills in to provide her perspective.

It was, how to put this...an interesting week for Our Capitals. Sorry to say we will NOT be discussing the Tom Wilson situation at any length. If you wish to know my take on things please visit our Facebook Show page.

We recap the four games and go over the perils facing the team no thanks to their unusual roster situation this past week. We also discuss bad Caps fans and their hatred of Anthony Mantha and why it's stupid.

Finally we discuss the potential future of two current Caps who are on the hot seat and may be facing relocation to another team--Evgeny Kuznetsov and Ilya Samsonov. Don't worry, they aren't really going anywhere. Yet.

The first week of May features another even week of hockey. Anna and I go over the win, the OT loss and the regulation loss.

We then put the spotlight on a man who means so much to Our Caps--Coach Oshie. We wish him well in his health issues.

And in an inflammatory rebuke we then go after one of the worst sources of Caps fans' negativity, a certain Facebook Group that features unfounded negative opinions about the Caps. We urge you to clean up your act and rid the page of the trolls who claim to be loyal Caps fans.

 

Be a loyal Caps fan even when finding fault.....never lose faith.

Anna and I go over in our usual crazy way the two games the Caps battled on Long Island and won. Could it be they have finally settled on a No. 1 goaltender?

We also take time to pass along our most positive vibes for one of the greatest fans in DC Sports---Ted Peters AKA Nats Captain Obvious. He's going through a very rough patch health wise and sure could use all of our well wishes.

Finally, in a special "easter egg" segment (because I forgot to mention it initially) we go back in time to talk about another trade that had a big impact on the Caps and their playoff fortunes.  Hint----think late 80's.....very late 80s.

Another week, another 4 games another 2 wins and another 2 losses. But still First Place in the East. Confusing? It certainly is. But Anna the Mermaid and I are here to explain it all. We are your Declassified Caps' Fan's Survival Guide.

Going into the last two games it was a tale of two Johns---Carlson of course. The first having a very good game and the next coming out smelling, like well.....a John. The Mermaid and I to no one's surprise disagree on how bad however.

The run to the playoffs has begun.

It was another semi-successful week for Our Washington Capitals. Literally. They won half their games in the week.  The Mermaid and I go over each win and loss as only we can. Prepare for a caffeine-fueled rundown like no other.

In our Special Segment we go over the reasoning for the recent deals that saw us waving goodbye to Jake the Snake Vrana and Richard Panik. A full evaluation will have to come later as we are, for the most part, withholding judgment.

Don't forget to catch Anna for CapsTalk every Monday night at 9 pm ET on the Sports on the Hill Podcast live on Facebook and the TRU Radio network.
