With those players on the ice...there was no chance at a PP goal.

Eh...no one really seperated themselves from the pack tonight.

Back to the speculation.

I don't think boomer has done much, but he might be a better defensive option than green. Offensively green probably beats him out, but who knows how McPhee see it in the defensive zone.

agree, but I didn't see all of the game and I think Steckel played well, again, from the portions I saw


I'll ask again, what happened on the first Flyers goal?

not sure I agree....with the bite he has in his game I could see him being a guy who can play on an energy type line as well....will be interesting

Jurcina?

I agree with pgreene on Boumer. A rather vanilla showing from him outside of the penalties. Maybe he's a bit better defensively than Green but he hasn't brought nearly the same offensive intensity...and that's what he was brought in for.

Bourque could work to an extent as a fourth liner. Like a lot of players that aren't elite talents, he's going to need some time to adjust to the higher, faster, bigger level of talent. Playing on the fourth line would allow him to do that, but he could still use some time in Hershey to round out his offensive game.

I didn't see the first Flyers goal clearly enough, but it looked like Coburn launched a shot from the point and it might have ricocheted in off of a Flyers forward and in.

No one really stood out among the bubble players. This might have been Klepis' last game, though. The same goes for some of the easier remaining cuts.

****, knew that was too easy, should have known forgot someone


Dress Boomer as a 7th, I just dont see how him going to back to Sweden/Finland is helping us. He doesnt want to go to AHL

Looks like everyone blinked when it happened. Either that or they don't want to tell you.

NP. The Flyers site has the goal credited to Boyd Kane (and indeed deflected from Coburn's point shot).

Boumedienne & Pollock were on the ice for it, if memory serves. My heart rate tends to increase whenever they're paired together and it's not a power play situation. It's better than some pairs we've seen recently but...things can get interesting when they're pressured.

Mo & Jurcina were pretty strong together, as should be expected. Erskine was decent but not great when on the PP. Eminger didn't really stand out but that's not a bad thing. I did notice him pinching down effectively a couple of times, though, and he had a couple of quality scoring opportunities in the second period.

I made this comment elsewhere, but I was surprised they paired Pollock and Boumedienne in 2 of the 3 games Boumedienne has played.

oh and thanks for more details, I was watching part of the replay, but missed the goal again.

Despite the fairly poor pre-season record, the caps have hardly given up any goals. That's a good sign, right?

EDIT: 14 goals in 5 games, I guess that isn't great after all.

it's just preseason who cares. That reminds me of my SEL team. They always have an awesome preseason record, but when the season starts they usually suck.

The good thing is that we haven't gotten blown out yet, every game has been a 1 goal game.

Back to the speculation.
Vogel's blog entry about the game: "The game against the Flyers didnít do much to help with the teamís pressing roster decisions, at least not to these eyes...The penalty kill was once again terrific, and Iím getting more personal satisfaction from the improved defense and penalty killing than from the promise of a more potent offense....Tomorrow is a day off, but Iíll have some quotes from Glen Hanlon about the difficulty of the final cuts."

I think the Bears could have given last night's team a run for their money.

There's no shame in last night's loss. I expected Briere and Gagne to skate circles around us, which they did.

Backstrom looked strong at center.

Flash looked good with the puck but the defense didn't have much trouble keeping him on the perimeter. I noticed he had a lot of trouble getting quality angle scoring chances. He did have some nice passes though, especially the one to Eminger on the PP.

yeah, take into account the line up that the caps dressed last night... lots of guys on the bubble trying to make a final push and settle roster spots, not bad at all.

as backstrom19 put it, they've been in every game so far, so i take that on a positive note.

It's easier to do more offensively when everyone is watching Ovechkin the whole time.

lineups have varied a lot during preseason, I don't believe we've seen the true identity of this team

It would actually be an improvement over last regular season, since that's an average of 2.8 goals/game, and they averaged 3.35 last season. I'm not doing cartwheels over a preseason improvement, but it gives me some hope. Even better, they are now limiting shots to far below what they were last season
