Pretty good readon where things stand so far.

Sounds like Alzner might not be playing tonight.  Last time Schimdt played it worked out pretty well...  

 

So the TL:DR is that Andersen is playing out of his damn mind blocking all these shots?

Are the Caps playing a playoff game? I think you know the answer.

It's just not gonna happen for them. Ever.

It's been such a good year for Russians in DC, I thought we had a real shot.

I was worried when they didn't take advantage of that 5 on 3.  Too annoyed to say much about last night's game right now, but I will mention that Holtby poke check was crazy!

Need to bring the series back to DC tied 2-2. Otherwise they're toast.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Incredible.

 

Still a long way to go. Frustrating for sure. Babcock can coach with the best of them. So many missed chances.

Some are pissed that Ovie only got 15 minutes last night.  All year long we heard about limiting his minutes for the playoffs, so maybe it's a good time to increase his work load a bit.  I thought he looked good last night, so there's no reason not to see him closer to 20 minutes

I've also heard it mentioned that if this is going to be the year, the team has to pull off some sort of series comeback (ala the '04Sox) after having been written off.  I don't necessarily buy into that, just win and move on.

People are on the right track, they just don't know WHY they are mad about it. One part is that they spent so much time on the penalty kill in the 3rd that cut into his time, but the other big problem was that Trotz was trying to cherry pick his line changes too perfectly and was running his 3rd and 4th out there too much. He was so worried about keeping the Leafs from scoring that he wasn't playing offense anymore. It's the equivalent of when a football team is up by 2 with 6 min left. They go into a prevent defense instead of trying to keep the ball and keep the other team off the field when they have it.
