Randy Moller: Sweetheart of the District ... High Flying Capitals Next

Molls WASHINGTON -- Woke up this morning on a cold and raw DC morning. Grabbed The Washington Post and a cup of coffee. And guess who's on the front page of the Post sports section? No, not Dave Sheinin.

Randy Moller.

Yeah, the Moller radio craze has hit the capital. By mid afternoon, it's the second-most read sports story on the Post website just under a story on the mess that the Washington Wizards have become.

From what I hear*, even President Barack Obama mentioned it at his luncheon with House Republicans in Baltimore today.

"What are you going to do about unemployment?'' one GOP leader asked.

"Drop it like it's hot!" the President exclaimed."Oh yeah, he shoots he scores! Panthers lead 1-0."

(*) My hearing is pretty off...

-- The Panthers are going with their same lineup tonight against the red-hot, high-flying Capitals. That means Nick Tarnasky is the healthy scratch.

Going to be a fun night, me thinks. Look at how the Washington offense matches up with Tomas Vokoun.

-- Washington: Has won eight straight games (streak started with that comeback win over Panthers earlier this month). In those games, Caps have only scored three goals once (win over Detroit). They have outscored their opponents 40-18. Panthers are only team to score four goals during that span.

-- Tomas Vokoun: Has made 13 straight starts and is 7-4-2. He has stopped 427 of 449 shots with three shutouts. In his past five games, Vokoun has given up just three goals on 150 shots.

Something has to give.
