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!

Episodes

Recorded July 25th 2018.

With the major hockey activity winding down and the summer heating up, Anna and I get together one last time to bid hockey adieu for the season.  But  fear not--we will be backcome traning camp.

The Mermaid and I field an "Ask anything" segment from listeners with some stellar questions about the team and its, ahem, attributes...

Wish there was more to say but I think you'll listen and understand that we saved the best for last. 

Thank you listeners and Caps fans for making this a kick ass year, enjoy the Cup and the summer...we all deserve it!

And thank you, Podbean....

Hope you are enjoying the Summer, Caps fans!

Anna and I with True Caps Fans admin Chris Levesque discuss the answer to the musical question:

"When was the moment you as a Caps fan began to believe this season would be special?"

We also read posts that address the same question from our Facebook page. Stay tuned there for further developments!

 

Please leave a review in iTunes, it will help us greatly!  Thanks for believing!

The title says it all! Our Washington Capitals have captured Lord Stanley's Cup!

This episode airs in two parts.  In Part One, Anna and I briefly recap the ridiculously exciting Game 5 Cup clinching efforts. We also go our separate ways in celebrating the Caps' historic win.  One of us got to drink quite a lot of beer,  the other listened to a lot of inappropriate music and came away with a bit of a sunburn. But both of us were overjoyed.

In Part Two, we are joined on an Uberconference call in segment by none other than the awesome Christian Levesque from the True Caps Fans Facebook group. He provides some sage perspective on how the Caps finally made it to the top as well as the meaning of the win for all of us fans.

My apologies for the lateness of this episode, this playoffs run has been both exhilarating and exhausting for both our Caps and we the fans and Anna and I certainly aren't exempt from that.

Our Washington Capitals are just ONE win away from achieving what many called the impossible dream--a Stanley Cup victory!

Along with our very special guest, Robbie Gross from the Sports on the Hill Podcast, Anna and I recap games 3 and 4 in the Final series.  Among other topics we discuss the secrets of success so far for the Caps.

Robbie also provides some much needed clarity with regard to the viewing party admission situation.

NOTE: We were also supposed to have Christian Levesque from True Caps Fans on the show as well but he could not attend due to an unforseen emergency.

Anna and I bust out this Special Edition of the Triple P to provide coverage of the Caps in their second Stanley Cup Final appearance ever.  And evcerybody is making the most of it.

We have a surprise Special Guest drop in us adding his most excellent analysis and information. I'll give you one hint--his name rhymes with Gurney Wheel.

Topics of discussion--The Save (how can you NOT mention it?) and an unlikely (Game Winning) goal scorer.

We also take time to address listener correspondences including one detailed question about the suspension process.

Not unlike Our Washington Capitals, we had our share of adversity during the recording (thank you so damn much Skype) but also like our Caps we have persevered to bring you what we hope is a very entertaining and informative survival guide in the form of a fan podcast.  We humbly thank all our loyal listeners for sticking by us and our team.

Show #70—Final Straw

Recorded May 27. 2018

It is on to Las Vegas. Sin City. America's Playground.  However you call it, it is where the 2018 Stanley Cup Final will be played.  And our Washington Capitals will BE THERE!!

Anna and I moment to reflect on how and especially what the Caps won this past round---the Prince of Wales Trophy. SPOILER ALERT---there will be a history lesson. But then it wouldn't be the triple P without one.

Other topics of discussion--Is it Final or Final(s)? Is Vegas a 'deserving team"?

We also take some listener questions about the upcoming series. And we make one final plea to our fellow Caps fans to keep up the energy and intensity up and not let up until that glorious silver chalice is in Captain Alex Ovechkin's hands.

Fellow fans Our Washington Capitals have forced a seventh and deciding game in the 2018 NHL Eastern Conference Final.  They are very much ALIVE!

Anna and I discuss how the Caps' reinvigorated attitude, and the backing of fans like you, helped the team right the ship and storm back in this series.  They now stand one win away from playing for Lord Stanley's Cup, hockey's Holy Grail.

We also talk about how the....excitement...of NHL playoff hockey can affect the minds of its fans and their everyday behavior. Including when to schedule lawn care (for you Doug Loosararian!). Superstition may not be the way, unless you believe in the Washington Capitals.

Let us all band together loyal listeners and continue to support our favorite team on this wild ride!

Apologies for the lateness of this episode, I had some personal matters to attend to. Thanks for your patience in this matter.

Caps fans we are halfway up the mountain with the summit in sight...and Anna and I are along for the ride.

Don't expect too hardcore an analysis, we're having way too much fun with this playoff run...

Features a funny "jersey" story by Anna and a debate on the Nicklas Backstrom situation.  Enjoy!

Welcome to NHL playoff nirvana, my fellow Caps fans!

Yes the deed is done, and it is time to celebrate....or is it? We Capitals fans can enjoy finally beating the Penguins but only for so long. Keep in mind that two more series must be won to achieve hockey immortality.

Anna and I go over, from our own perspectives, how it was done and especially what it means to we the Washington Capitals fans. Enjoy!
