Washington Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau accused both Steve Downie and Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning as being ‘divers’ in speaking with reporters on Monday. The Capitals will face the Lightning in Tampa this evening with sole possession of first place in Southeast Division on the line. We figured some investigation was in order to see which team, in fact, was the Southeast’s most prolific group of floppers.
The results were staggering. We got to watching the Capitals most recent game, a 3-2 OT victory of the Florida Panthers from Sunday, and discovered that players were lying on the ice for most of the game. Our research was aborted after these findings.
