NEWS & NOTES





QUOTES TO NOTE

Obviously, Del Zotto's playing really good, he’s very good offensively. Right now, everything is going for him. That first goal was pretty amazing.
I think, as a team, a lot of players are going right now. That’s what you want, everybody to chip in and do their job.
- Anton Stralman


We feel very comfortable playing at home. We know what we have to do. It doesn’t matter who we play, if it’s a top team or a team that’s struggling a little bit, we just know how we have to play.
Our structure is protecting us when we have tough moments during the game. They kept coming pretty hard but our structure saved us a little bit.
- Henrik Lundqvist


Being number 1 in the standings doesn’t mean anything to me. How many games have we played, 34 games? I don’t care about Boston or anybody else.
We haven’t even gone halfway through the year and I think that’s a key component of our mindset is just to take it a day at a time.
- John Tortorella

Lgr!!!

JeffMangum 12-27-2011 09:30 PM

If we can win tomorrow and Monday, I'll be happy.

Swedish Fish 12-27-2011 09:32 PM

A win would be great but I'm so happy with this team right now I can't even complain if they lose

we want cup 12-27-2011 09:32 PM

Let's keep it going. We're good enough to put away a struggling team, so homefully we get it done.

LGR! :yo:

Clowes Line 12-27-2011 09:35 PM

Fix for six! LGR!

Loffen 12-27-2011 09:36 PM

Win tomorrow, dog it in Florida and win the ****ing WC. :sarcasm:

Gardner McKay 12-27-2011 09:38 PM

Honestly, outside of the top line absolutely NOTHING about this Washington team scares me. 3 other mediocre lines. A mediocre defense with JOHN FREAKIN ERSKINE on the #1 d pairing? That is just beyond sad.

silverfish 12-27-2011 09:38 PM

730 puck drop and 10 o clock 24/7, thank god for DVR.

Rangers til end, 24/7 til end, then Knicks...what a night!

LETS GO RANGERS

SupersonicMonkey* 12-27-2011 09:38 PM

Let's go Rangers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Clowes Line 12-27-2011 09:39 PM

A win against Washington or Florida will satisfy me. Want both obviously, but if we can go into the WC with 50 points (Holy ****, am I talking about the NY Rangers???), I'll be very happy.

darko 12-27-2011 09:47 PM

Keep it going. Caps have only 10 wins in 27 games after that 7-0-0 start. They do play well at home, 1 of the better home records in East. This will be a hard game.

LGR

This.

Love when the Rangers play at 7-7:30 and then the Knicks at 10.

LGR!

Blatant 12-27-2011 10:41 PM

Want 2/3 of the next 2 games. Philly lost tonight.

Kane One 12-27-2011 10:45 PM

LGR! I will be extremely satisfied if we can **** them up.

TonyTheGr8 12-27-2011 11:03 PM

We may come back to the pack with this one tonight, boys. I don't want 'em to, but I think they need some sorta wake up call before the WC..right? I mean, they can't go into Philly with a NINE game winning streak, and be going for 10 in a row..can they??? :amazed:

Ah, **** it..why can't they? LGR!!!!

Well it would be 7 going into Philly and 8 coming out if we keep it going so we aren't THAT hot. At least not yet ;)

charlie460 12-27-2011 11:34 PM

Ew, a Versus exclusive game.

Oh well, LGR!

Ryan McDonut 12-28-2011 12:07 AM

7:30 start and 24/7 at 10. looks like we're gonna end up missing some of 24/7.

Hopefully it isn't a close game. If either team is up by a few goals near the end of the game I'll be ok with switching to 24/7.

FromTheSide 12-28-2011 12:18 AM

I rather this be a VS game rather than one of our home games. LGR

broadwayblue 12-28-2011 12:33 AM

Think I might watch 24/7 first to get pumped up for this one. Would hate to watch this episode (which can only show us winning the past week) after a loss. Hopefully the streak will continue.

NYRSchrute217 12-28-2011 01:16 AM

Old/new division rivals. I don't expect the Caps hate to go down soon.

Let's get number 6 and bury them. We've played them well in Washington during the regular season lately.

McDonagh 12-28-2011 01:31 AM

We are due to lose and they are due to win. I will be very happy with a win here.

mcsauer2738 12-28-2011 02:12 AM

unlike most i'm a huge fan of the every 4-5 games a year that are versus exclusive. It's nice to hear some different announcers on the call
