Those of us who have dogs can totally understand what Karl Alzner was feeling on Wednesday night when he returned home to find that his dogs had gone on a destructive rampage. Do we know what it feels like to lose a triple-overtime game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs? No, but we certainly can relate to coming home after a terrible day at work to find that our dog(s) must have been sniffing glue or something and decided to go hog wild on our living room.
On the bright side, at least someone was having fun while the Capitals were in the process of falling into a 2-1 series hole against the Rangers. From the look of it, the dogs managed to get their paws on some magazine pages, a slipper, some newspapers, and they even got some chewing action in on that red bag sitting on the chair. Karl may have had a night to forget, but his dogs will remember this one forever.
