from Paul Waldie of the Globe and Mail, “I thought that was a heck of a game,” Noel said afterward. “It would have been a sad game to lose, really.” So what did he learn about his team on this night? “I learned that I like them as much as I liked them the last month and two months,” he said with a smile. “I continue to like them.” He also learned something about the MTS Centre crowd, which was more boisterous than ever and generated a playoff-like atmosphere while making life as miserable as possible for the Capitals and Alex Ovechkin in particular. At one point the crowd repeatedly chanted “Crosby’s Better” just as the big forward hit the ice. “That’s what you’ve got to like,” Noel said shaking his head and laughing. “It’s not the standard boo yea, boo yea.

You’ll probably need a decoder ring to figure out Alex Ovechkin’s NCAA bracket

Don’t bother enlarging the picture…making it bigger doesn’t make it any easier to decipher. Give Ovi credit for trying his hand at filling out a bracket for this year’s NCAA tournament, which is what I’m assuming the Capitals forward was trying to do here. nEither that or he mistook this empty bracket for one of those restaurant placemats with the connect-the-dots picture...
