Caps go to 5-0 with a 5-0 win.

I knew before opening this that the Flash Gordon video was going to be the only thing in the first post.

I would like this, but not sure its realistic. I think the Cats actually may have improved themselves significantly. We always seem to have trouble with them.

3 Ex Caps coming back to down tonight. I hope we do not give them any sort of warm welcome.

Ideally, Theo starts for them, and Vokoun for us and we shut them out. Would love to see the Caps light up Theo, and give both Brads and Flash a rude welcome home with a spanking on the scoreboard. It's about time the Caps light someone up, and tonight would be a great night for that.

I don't see why it's terribly unrealistic. They're a finesse team with Flash and Versteeg as 2 of their 4 biggest scoring threats and without much on defense or in goal. The Caps are an improved version of a team that's won the division 3 times in a row.

Well, understanding that, they also sure did put a hurtin on the bolts the other night so thus far they don't seem to be hurting in the scoring department. Either they are playing far over expectations, or we are playing a bit below ours in terms of scoring. (FL 14 GF vs the Caps 15 GF) And like I said, we always do seem to have trouble with them. But, I digress, this will be the first time we have faced them without Vokoun on their roster in quite a while. I hope Vokoun gives THEM fits now, and you are right. I also think were due for an explosive game and this would be a great game for that. I just hope that Theo and Vokoun start this one. Would love to see Vokoun blank his old club.

Love to see someone tango with Brads tonight. At least put the big hit on him.

Here's hoping Markstrom gets a rude welcoming to the NHL.

BrooklynCapsFan 10-18-2011 10:18 AM

Washington has 14 gf. Why the standings give credit for the so victory as a gf, I will never understand.

NobodyBeatsTheWiz 10-18-2011 10:24 AM

It's only a matter of time before the Caps get an offensive explosion. They're 4-0 without getting production from Ovechkin. If he breaks out, it could get ugly.

I'd argue that the team has been bad so far, but the only decent team they've played, based on what else is going on, is Pittsburgh. I don't think tonight tells us much, but Philly and Detroit coming up sure will.

Another home game... another "tired" team... another "back-up" goalie. Let's attempt to play like champions today guys.

edit: oh yes... and ****** win (pre-empt the inevitable Txpd post questioning my desire for 2 pts)

I just question whether Bruce can correct their mistakes if the team goes 98-0. Maybe a few losses would benefit them.

All I heard was, "Have another beer, buy some more women, and see if we can manage a shootout win after letting them out-shoot us in regulation."

:naughty:

98-0 means he wouldn't have to correct the mistakes. It would just be :caps :partytime:

Unless you count the All-Star game.

ARE YOU SAYING THE ALLSTAR GAME IS A JOKE!!!! How DARE YOU!

Blades of steel 10-18-2011 10:56 AM

I'm fairly confident we will see Semin and Bradley drop the gloves tonight.

Damn autocorrect

I need to go out and buy some popcorn so I have it handy for when we do lose a game. This place will freak out then.

Liberati0n* 10-18-2011 11:08 AM

Clearly the Panthers know what a weak, weak mental competitor Jose Theodore is. Too bad. Hopefully Markstrom has a rough first start.

Kettle corn, puffy Pirate's Booty, or microwaved light butter?

I'd get the big barrel with the 3 types from the kids raising money for football.

mrwarden 10-18-2011 11:14 AM

I'm a fan of homestyle popcorn, myself.

As much as I would love to drive up to Dewey Beach and get some Fisher's Popcorn, I'm trying desperately to keep the weight down in order to keep being able to run. So probably Orville Reddenbacher light.

MMMMMMMMMMM

Do want.

Eat several pieces of each of the cheese, butter, and caramel together. Deliciousness.
