Washington Capitals grumblings and other good stuff about hockey! If you’re a Caps fan, long time or new, Powerplay Point has something for you!


Recorded March 19, 2018

We are back from a week off...which finds us lamenting the same old Caps, unfortunately.  Lots of ups and yes quite a few downs.  Anna and I discuss multiple issues including, but not limited to:

1. The recent California road trip

2. The most recent game played as of this recording against the Philadelphia Flyers

3. The so-called "goaltending controversy"

Be sure to get your fill of additional Caps talk (featuring Anna) and all things DC Sports at the Sports on the Hill Podcast, hosted by Carroll Porter III and Robbie Gross.

Anna and I reflect on a short week of hockey in Caps' world which featured the Stadium Series game in Annapolis, Maryland. This also features her appearance Sports on the Hill Podcast this past Monday.

Speaking of that game we have an old friend of mine, Ron Schronce, who attended the game spend time with us and give his story as an eyewitness to both the game and the festivities. If you didn't have the opportunity to be there yourself you'll want to listen to his every word as he describes what it was like.

I would like to personally apologize to our loyal listeners for the lateness of this episode.  Way too much crap I barely had any control over, but no excuses.  Thanks for listening!

Bonus material of sorts...you get to hear me ramble on a bit about the experience plus my take on recent events...Also there was a Mermaid sighting on the Sports on the Hill Podcast last night. And may I say she represented our show very well.  Thanks to Carroll Porter III and Robbie Gross for having her on.

Rejoice! The losing streak is over...stop mashing the panic button.

Anna and I discuss the most recent game that broke said aforementioned streak as well as the All Star goings-on (mostly the Skills Competition). Our Captain had his well deserved moment in the spotlight and we will describe that in full.  Our goalie....not so much.  We will describe that sort of in full.

We also take a few moments to highlight some of the ladies on the 2018 USA Womens Olympic hockey team which includes a young local player in her first Olympics.

Show must be good---even Mrs. Blueliner got in on the act a bit.

Last minute note--#92 will be "good to go" according to the latest reports....yes I know it was actually a LOWER body injury.

It has been a rough last few games for Our Washington Capitals.  And though the Federal Government has shut down (temporarily) we will soldier on as only we can to deliver our quality analysis of the situation.

First phase is our customary recap of the last few games.  Anna provides her insights on what she saw. I will warn you...the Caps losing does tend to put me in a VERY bad mood. So if you don't like hearing Mom and Dad fight, you may want to sit this one out...

Further analysis is ably provided by Friend of the Show Christian Levesque with his usual spot-on takes on the Caps' play as of late. His quotes can be viewd at the link below.  Others from the True Caps Fans FB site such as Tony Olcott and Bernie Diehl also offer their takes on the Caps' recent skid.

Show #52—Byefelicia

Recorded Jan. 16, 2018

Welcome to the Powerplay Point Podcast's dedication to Seinfeld, because we got plenty of nothing.

It's the Bye week so there's not much to discuss except the most recent week's worth of games.  We discuss the style of play and how it's (barely) gotten Our Caps bye, er by.

Anna takes a bow as she reveals her phenomenal powers of prediction...

And we discuss sone of the weird goings on during these last few games, as only we at the Powerplay Point Podcast can do.  I guarantee you will walk away bewildered if not thoroughly entertained!
