No need to change mojo. He was very good the 1stv3 games IMO. He was bad last night, but so was everyone else. No need for knee jerk reactions.

Also I do not want ribs with Ovechkin ever again if Backstrom is in the lineup. Oates talks all the time about puck touches. I would venture to say that Ovechkin would get far fewer puck touches playing with ribs rather than Backstrom, as ribs holds on to the puck alot.

Overall, we were the much better team the 1st 3 games. We had a stinker last night, but I'm still very confident if we play at least decent we will win this series, and the next 2 games. The last bad game this team and Ovechkin had was @Ottawa, and they responded really well against Montreal. This team hasn't really had 2 bad games in a row since they've gotten hot and I expect that to continue.

I'd take our chances against anyone in the east in a best 2/3 with home ice advantage.
