Being Bullied

complacency : \-sən(t)-sē\, noun; self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies
from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

See also : The Washington Capitals in the third period of their February 24th game versus the Philadelphia Flyers.

Everything happened so fast (just about three minutes), everyone in the stands was reeling. I guess the good news is that the power-play didn't allow Richards, Gagne or anyone else to strike shorthanded, and, in fact, the Capitals had several excellent short-handed chances.

The bad news, of course, is that if they could have followed through on any of those short-handed breakaways (Backstrom's, Steckel's or either of Laich's!), the outcome of the game likely would have been much, much different.

More impressions, and possibly some photos, later.
