Hockey After Dark: Night 22 (Click Bait: I found the Perfect Analytic & Audio of the Washington Capitals' "Players Only Meeting" Edition) by @DXTraeger

"...Where Insomnia Hits the Ice."
(Welcome to "Hockey After Dark," a late-night recap of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  Topics will include scores, injuries, controversies, the Twitter-verse, and random jokes at the expense of the Philadelphia Flyers.  I strongly encourage clicking on the links)

Last night, I expounded upon the NHL's headshot epidemic and how it extends into the sport's media coverage.  So long as idiots like Mike Milbury and Keith Jones can wax moronic about "hockey plays," the league will continue to see its best selling points (Crosby, McDavid, etc.) miss games.

Tonight, I have a DOOZY of an itinerary planned for you hockey fans.

First and foremost, I'm proud to announce that I've found the analytic HOLY GRAIL, a singular metric that has a virtual 100% correlation between a team winning and losing.

Second, I've applied various iterations of this metric to the Pittsburgh/Washington series and have made significant progress in being able to describe the Penguins' 3-1 series advantage despite the Corsi/Fenwick avalanche that fawns over the Capitals.

And finally, I have an audio clip of the Washington Capitals' "players only meeting" that occurred after Game 2.  Suffice it to say, the revelations are staggering.

But first, let me unveil the analytic HOLY GRAIL analytic...

This was all click bait to lead you to the BEST NEWS EVER BELOW
Sorry to tease and run folks, but if you've been an avid reader to this point, then you know that I've been on #BabyWatch2017 for a few days now.

It seems that the Pittsburgh Penguins' newest fan is eager to watch her favorite team close out the Capitals on Saturday night, so you'll have to excuse me while I accommodate her demands.

Seriously, I've loved writing this bit, and I've loved the playoff journey with all of you to this point, and as soon as my new little one permits, we will pick up where we left off.

I'll also share pictures of my daughter with all of her Penguins SWAG.

Go Penguins!  Hope to catch up with all of you soon!
