Disappointing because we had the lead with 11 seconds left. But then we were down 2-0 and played a crappy first period.
One point against Washington with this team is good.
Spacek was outstanding tonight, as was Hamrlik. Price didn't have a lot of shots but made some huge saves, especially when Caps were leading. He didn't give up that back breaking third goal and allowed us to come back.
I love Pleks and despite a goal it wasn't a great game for him, a couple big faceoff losses and a lot of bad blind passes. I'm happy with the point though as I wasn't expecting the game to be that close after the first period.
Aside from the points already mentioned, nice block by white, Pacioretty continues to impress, and I'm not quite sure what Mara's penalty was for (I missed the replay) but it looks like the same thing he does infront of the net all of the time so why they called it with 15 seconds left is beyond me.
There's pros and cons in this loss. On the pro side, we got a point against a good team with our depleted lineup and played well in the last two periods. On the con side, we lost when we had the lead with 11 seconds. Tough to take, but I;m guessing it's an outcome will feel better about in a few days.
Do not send Plekachu to take any faceoffs at the end of the game and no more shootout please for him. Good Performance by Price.
I might agree about the shootout but he's the man you want for that faceoff 10 times out of 10.
Good game and nice effort overall. I can't see the Habs sending White back to the minors now, although they might not have the choice when everyone is healthy. Pacs with another solid game and showing more and more confidence out there. Hamrlik and Spacek played great once more and Price gave the team a chance again.
