Scratch Aucoin for Eakin.
Green and Ovie were playing the points on the PP last night. If Wideman isn't on the PP, scratch him for Orlov.

Wideman needs a scratch. Badly. Good lord, its been a long time since I've seen one of our players prone to making such big boneheaded mistakes. He needs to sit a couple of games.

I don't quite understand how it is so easy for so many to just completely ignore that Ward has only been on for 20 non PP goals against all season and is a team best +12 while the likes of Ovechkin have been on for 60 non PP goals against and is -9. Think about that for a second.
Sure Ward is doing next to nothing on the offensive end but his defensive work is excellent. Anyone remember Jan Erixon? Well apparently his second coming is wearing 42 for the Caps...
