The cardinals have won pretty recently IIRC. Ummm, I'm going to guess Minnesota.

Oates said Orlov will be back in the lineup Tuesday night “unless something comes up.” He said the biggest reason Orlov was not in the lineup before Saturday night was the concussion he suffered last season and the strong play of rookie defenseman Nate Schmidt this season.
“He was hurt,” Oates said of Orlov. “He never had a chance to prove what he could do. Unfortunately, injuries are a part of the game and somebody has to play in your spot and if they play good, what are you going to do? It’s just part of the deal and it happens all over [the NHL] and we’ve all got to understand that.”
effectively you are saying you cant enjoy the caps until they are holding the cup in their hands. we all know having a lead in games in the ecf or the scf only creates valid fears of choking.
so...watching them play is torture.
if you cant have fun, why do it?
How many times do you have to get smacked in the face before it's ok to flinch? Operant conditioning. CAPS fans have been conditioned to high hopes at times only to have those hopes dashed mercilessly. That doesn't stop us from loving our team but it also doesn't mean uncertainty about whether our hopes will be dashed is very far away.
Until this team actually wins something in the post season, that probably won't change.
