POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Capitals 6, Lightning 5, SO
By Mike Vogel - Senior Writer at WashingtonCaps.com

Winning Ugly – Two points are two points, and every goal is a rocket from the slot in the box score. But neither coach is likely to be overly happy about his team’s performance in tonight’s sloppy, ugly yet fast-paced and exciting game, a 6-5 Capitals win over the Lightning that required a skills competition to determine a victor for standings purposes...

Talking Point: do you stream TV more than movies?
By Dan Owen at Dan's Media Digest

Netflix have revealed that 60% of their US subscribers prefer to stream TV shows instead of movies. Does this fit with your own online habits? I've only ever streamed a few movies online, and because the quality was sub-DVD standard (with no surround sound), my choices were always old "classics" I'd never ordinarily bother to buy or rent...

Thin Lizzy - Live in London 2011
Posted by Racer at The Ripple Effect

...Phil can never be replaced. He remains one of the most galvanizing, mercurial figures in rock history. But the new version of Thin Lizzy playing his music are good. Damn good...

...So really, the question is the front man. Who could do it? Who has the balls and the proper charisma to take the place of Phil on stage. Talk about being set up to fail! Well, let me tell you, the Lizzy boys couldn't have found a better man than Ricky Warwick. Nothing in his resume of the Almighty or New Model Army prepared me for what I heard...

BBC cost-saving measures announced
By Dan Owen at Dan's Media Digest

...The radio and daytime TV cuts I can live with, but a BBC with no foreign imports and less entertainment shows doesn't fill me with happiness. But BBC1 is set to benefit, as it becomes an even bigger focus of the BBC, and the corporation's promised to invest more in comedy/drama. I think we'll have a better idea what this has done to the quality and output of the BBC in a few years time, but it's definitely a concern...

By Mike Vogel - Senior Writer at WashingtonCaps.com

...In Sunday’s 4-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, the Hawks picked up where they left off in Friday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres. Washington was dominant in the first 30 minutes of Sunday’s game against Chicago, and when the Capitals – leading by a slim 2-1 margin at the time – did hit a lull midway through the second period, goaltender Michal Neuvirth was there to deny Chicago’s ongoing bid for the tying marker...

Season finale review: 'Doctor Who' - 'The Wedding of River Song':
All at once

By Alan Sepinwall at What's Alan Watching? via HitFix.com

...Steven Moffat laid out such a complicated story arc for himself this season that "The Wedding of River Song" had an awful lot to live up to. It had to explain how the Doctor wouldn't die at Lake Silencio - since, great as Matt Smith is, no one has any intention of having the series end with him - had to tell us more about the Silence and the Question, provide the kind of emotional resolution to the Amy/River/Melody story that "Let's Kill Hitler" didn't have time to, and more...

DOCTOR WHO, 6.13 – "The Wedding Of River Song"
By Dan Owen at Dan's Media Digest

...I'm all for big ideas, expensive location work, and lashings of special effects, but it's ultimately a brilliant story and engaging characters that keeps me watching. There was some of that here, but it had a tendency to get lost in the noise, like a mother reading a fairy tale in the middle of a booming music festival...
