    Top Ten things overheard at the Verizon Center as Brooks Laich hobbled back to the bench during yesterday’s Caps game against the Boston Bruins:   10. Somehow, Ovi’s gonna get suspended for this… 9. Do we start yelling ‘Ref you suck!” now, or wait a bit? 8. Damn. It’s hard enough stalking Green and Backstrom at home. Anyone have Brooksie’s address? 7. OH GOD! HE DIDN’T GET HIT IN THE FACE, DID HE!? 6. I think Tim Thomas hurt him somehow. You know how he hates those left wing and center types… 5. I can’t tell who it is… all I see is a ‘2’. Please be Aucoin. Please be Aucoin. Please be… dammit! 4. OH GOD! HE DIDN’T GET HIT IN THE GROIN, DID HE!? 3. It’s ok, it’s Brooks. He’ll probably change someone’s oil on his way to the locker room. 2. Quite the interesting dance Brooks is doing there. Beat Dat Beat! 1. Would anyone like to buy some non-refundable playoff tickets!?
