I think we win this game if it's on home ice, to be honest. Not having the crowd behind them to help with that ******** penalty and ******** goal broke them mentally.

I'm mad that this team broke mentally after the last two games where they showed amazing mental strength.

FWIW, I thought we played a solid OT. It was back and forth and some of the best, most exciting hockey I have seen from any team in any year. It sucks to be on the losing end of that OT.
Completely agree. I also believe that the refs tilted the ice in the third, whether that was because they thought they called too many penalties on the Capitals or they made a decision to swallow their whistles. I believe that if a team continually gets away with interference and tripping, that team gets a lot of space and can tilt the ice with possession.

At the Garden, Washington wouldn't have gotten away with nearly as much crap as they did.
