A selection of tweets we received on Capitals Insider during yesterday's game. DChi606: Nice shot off of Lundy's head there! We're in his head, on his head, hitting his head. ryptide: LOL. Tortorella is alone in the press box... In the dark. He turned the light off. Bobtimist: Thinking Torts throws a water bottle at the booing Rangers fans too genetam: dear caps, sorry I gave up on you when you guys were down 3-1. It won't happen again, that is until you reach the finals vs the wings.
