NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

On this episode, host Felix Sicard flies solo to break down the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

Brodacast on KCOP tonight, the entire first period of the game was blacked out by error, adding more fuel to the criticism's around the Ducks' brutal TV ratings. Felix gets into that to begin the podcast, eventually moving on to actually hockey-related topics.

Once again, Anaheim failed to make good on a lead going into the third period, opening the door for a Capitals' comeback that was capped off by a beautiful game-winning goal by Alex Ovechkin in overtime. Rickard Rakell had a slew of opportunities during the game, and looked decent on an eye-test level with Adam Henrique. That leads to a discussion over Rakell's defensive game, and why he may be a little better than Felix has been giving him credit for recently.

To end the show, the 2011 Entry Draft is recapped, a draft that saw the Ducks bring in seven players who all made it to the NHL, including some key components of their current roster.
