Kostitsyn did this the last 2 seasons. A total ghost in the first 20 games and then he suddenly starts producing.

Good game! Kostiiiiiiiiiiiiii habibi, you're back. FINALLY. God he can be a scary player when he gets it on. I'm liking what I'm seeing from the "second" line, and I like what pacioretty brings though he needs some fine tuning. He should have buried that chance on that excellent pass by kostitsyn. Dany Dubé had an excellent point about him on CKAC after the game; often, he skates like the wind and when he gets to the O zone, he stops, keeps his skates open wide and glides around trying too much with his head down.

Cammy mon chéri was a tad less visible I thought except for that ridiculous awesome sick shot that I kept dreaming about before the season, imagining markov feeding him.

And I am exceedingly glad to see that. I had not been impressed with how the kids had performed under Jacques Martin, and am I ever happy to eat crow. I just hope he can work the same magic on the much-maligned, but much-needed, Lats.

Oh I see, makes sense

I was like.. SOMETHING HAS CHANGED!

I also wanted to know if someone could clear this up: I missed the end of the first period, and thus the laraque erskine fight. On CKAC they said erskine won but my friend told me it was weird and erskine was just pushing him. What happened exactly?

They dropped the gloves and a hugging match ensued. Erskine tried throwing a couple punches, without success. Laraque was off balance for most of the fight and Erskine ended up shoving him down. Erskine ''won'' because he put Laraque down, but no real punches were thrown.

Well technically win% is what percent of games you win, the number of points would be point%.

13-5-2 for example is 65.0 win% but is 70.0 point%. Doesn't make sense that your win% goes up when you lose (OTL or SOL).

All those who said we were going to get blown out should man up and write an apology for doubting this team. There's a lot of heart there and quite a bit of talent despite the cruel and relentless injuries.

Ftr i called it. 3-2 Cammy with the winner. Look it up in the gdt. Just sayin.

I was refering to win% as the NHL refers to it... points divided by number of games. Go see their website. I do agree that it is point%, but the NHL calls it win%.

Sure it wasn't an icing?..and I'll never consider the end of the first period as a crucial time unless in the POs.

The trio George played on wasn't the 4th and Washington has the last change. At some point BGL will be in our D zone. It's not because there's a defensive zone faceoff that you'll have to take him out every single time.
Showing faith in a player is a very important thing too.

Not saying he's a defensive specialist. I'm just not putting as much importance on it.

I got to sit down with my uncle-in-law to watch this match and I was highly entertained.

Shutting down Ovechkin tonight was AMAZING. He had a pretty bad game compared to what he usually shows us, but then again the entire team was just off. Their passing was almost always in the skates or hobbling off their sticks. The Washington Capitals played an awful game and I don't think anyone can argue that. A game that ends with Ovechkin and Greene on the ice during a 6-on-4 powerplay and they don't convert, you know that they just didn't have it going their way.

On the other hand, Montreal didn't play too strong of a game either. We did quite a lot of good things, but we also saw the same old aggravating mistakes as well. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I am not really tired of Bergeron anymore. I'm getting more tired of the trend of defenseman that are paired with him, always trusting him with the puck in their own zone. Bergeron is NOT the guy you want holding onto the puck while trying to move it out of your end.

I was laughing at the play when Cammy scored on the PP. The way he was calling for the puck the whole time and then ripped it into the back of the net was quite comical. It reminded me of the Flames player a few years back during the playoffs, when he came off the bench, slapped his stick on the ice repeatedly and scored the winning goal in OT against Detroit.

Big win tonight for the boys. A regulation win against a team that everyone thought would run over us is always pleasing. If we can manage to beat Detroit tomorrow, I am afraid that blueprints might be fetched out of the trash bins for their parade on Ste. Catherine...

Goes to show what this team can do with a solid 60 minute effort. Excellent work, I was impressed.

I thought Caps played well tonight. We just showed up very aggressive too and we ended getting the advantage in the long run.

So happy to see Andrei Kost emerge from his funk. The kid is really showing some great vision right now... nice to see him make some nice passes. The goals will come!

Price... what can I say. I'm glad that he's finally making good on my man-crush... it was getting pretty tiring having to defend him to everyone I would talk to about him. Man he's awesome... The Franchise for sure.

Pleks... I was scared about our future cap situation heading into the season and now I must say I'm petrified because I'm worried we aren't going to be able to get him signed. Frig I wish Gainey would make that happen RIGHT NOW!

The D tonight... what an awesome effort! Glad to see O'Byrne play fairly well in his first game back. They'll ease him in and hopefully will continue to improve on his breakthrough season.

How much longer do we have to deal with MAB? He seems unable to make a simple play in his own end... it's incredibly hard to watch.

GREAT GAME!!!! Can't wait to take it to Detroit!!!

if gomez misses any games, at least we'll see plex on the first line. or maybe cammer as a center.

i missed the game, i am sad. but couldn't be more thrilled about the win. i was leaving a concert and just caught the 3 stars on the tv's in the lobby and knew we won.

Plekanec has improved every single season since we drafted him but one (last season). There are no reports of him being a trouble maker, or someone that is not professional. There really has never been a reason to need to be patient in his case, just one bad season.

Just got back home. Pretty unsober, so keepin it brief. Man, what a game. Price shut the door when he needed to, and was tough between the pipes. Held his ground well a couple of times. Good to catch a glimpse or two of what might be possible if Pac, Plek, and Andrei ever really start clicking. Defense was horrible again at clearing the zone and getting the puck past the first level of forecheck. Washington was pouring it on hard though. The powerplay... where's that help thingy... ah yes: . Laraque... no need. Everyone held up together under pressure at the end of the game, and I'm sure that brought them together a bit, and boosted the confidence around the locker room.

Price bailed out the firedrill happening out in front of him, when his team did nothing but panic in our own end. His mask was knocked off on one instance, he lost his stick on another.

If they tell you the team played well all game, they lied. Price played well, the team looked lost and appeared to panic a ton from the end of the second period on.

yup not icing, I made a point to rewind. Well if we dont have the last change thats even worse IMO because u know Boudreau is going to be putting Ovy or anyone whos hot against that line. I like playing the odds and theres no reason to put a defensive liability in your own end, especially at the end of a period. This team doesnt have the firepower and going down 2-0 is not an option. Id take him or MAB out of any defensive faceoff if i had a choice.

It was basically a full out shooting gallery in the last minute. Washington has the PP, and pulled their goalie so it was a 6-4 advantage. Ovechkin took a shot from the point and Price made the save with his stick, but it knocked it out of his hand and ended up near the corner. Someone tried shoveling it to him but it didn't make it, so Gorges gave him his stick. Eventually Price got his stick back, gave Gorges his stick back andthen Josh proceeded to block a rocket from the point that might have saved a goal. Washington got the puck back and moved it nicely around the outside perimeter. Not sure who was covering the right side point, but he was completely gassed, and after two nice give and goes another rocket from Green came right towards Price. Price barely gets a piece of it and it flutters, bounces on the ice, and hits the post behind him. It ends up infront of Price and gets pushed back under him, at this time Price had no helmet on after there was like 6 players in, around the crease, and on top of him, but the play got blown dead. Then the faceoff comes and Plekanec argues to the ref that his stick is broken and he needs a new one, promptly flexing the blade with his hand. The ref denies him, he wins the faceoff, and then a few seconds later clears the zone gingerly with a broken blade to ice the game.

Intense moments.

Best Regular Season game by Tom Pyatt as well. he stripped AO of the puck at least 3 times. Quick feet, active stick, quiet determination, and good instinct for the safe play considering his age, he will hopefully make quite a defensive specialist if we develop him right.
