There are many reasons to be mad at Scott Gomez, but tonight's game isn't one of them.

Subban and Ovie were apparently having a laugh about the hit and Ovie asked him not to hit him back too hard

On the struggles of the Caps this year, Ray Ferraro mentioned the fact that with the emergence of Tampa and Atlanta this year it has taken away many of the easy southeast division points that the Caps got last year, they are very poor defensively and are a total mess in my opinion. I think they have been the most over hyped team in this league, they are not a serious contender and will not go far in the playoffs again this year. I also think for the most part that the teams in the NHL have figured out how to play Ovechkin and he does not know how to change his game and has looked very average all season long.

Agreed 100%. Last year before the playoffs I was praying we'd meet them in the first round. Their coach is a cheerleader at best.

Also says a lot about defensive and systemic hockey and why it works if you ask me. It may be boring, but it wins you games.

They have bigger, better players than the Habs, definitely more purely offensively talented players than we do, but we always hold our own against that team. That is because of our system and coaching imo. We do have the edge in nets though.

Solid road game and a well deserved 2 points from the Habs tonight..

The only negative for me tonight was the non existent PP again.. That needs some work still..

They have good movement, problem is it takes them forever to enter the zone and set the damn thing up and they rarely get second and third chances before the zone is cleared.

Cammalleri will help when he comes back, but another big body sacrificing his ribs along with Pacioretty would help.

Does anyone who watched the game on TSN remember Ferraro's quote where he described Gill as a canoe?

Yeah heard that. Would've been better if he called him and aircraft carrier though.

The USS GILL.

I do, he said that Hal Gill lying across the net was comparable to a canoe in front of Carey Price. He also spoke of Gills paddle.

if that's what it takes for Spacek to play at that level, I think it's worth it. he is playing some nice hockey when not getting big minutes, plus he seems like a great guy to have on a team. No way anybody hates on him if he continues to do this.

I was just looking at the boxscore from tonight's game and Weber played a little over 19 minutes.. IMO the kid is looking pretty good right now defensively and hopefully he can start getting a few PP points soon..

Wiz led in TOI with 24:59 and PK had 24:31..

Why do we boo Chara, Briere etc? Because they are good, dangerous and make us jealous that we don't have them

I don't think anyone was booing Chara or Brière after 48 career NHL games...

Like i've said before, the hate is irrational...I don't understand it

Powerplay time with not much to show for it. Needs to improve especially since the PK has taken a hit.

Its a sign of jealousy and respect. Its a known fact that the Canadiens are a hated organization by other teams fans and even players. Thus, whenever we have someone valuable he will get hated on.

Especially if he play on the same level as last year in the playoffs.

Don't think it's that. As good as he has been for us, he isn't getting Crosby-jeers in opposing rinks. I mean, if he were playing for another team against the Habs I wouldn't boo him but I'd boo Chara.

It's simple to me: People are booing him because they've been told to. Not just by the idiots of the world (Don Cherry, Mike Richards), but by the media that made those viewpoints into actual stories.

Why was Subban's celebration against Calgary a point of contention? You see that a dozen times a year, but this time it got an inordinate amount of coverage. Everything PK does is put under the microscope because it can lazily be turned into a controversial story by just adding a little innuendo.

"I have no problem with it, but some people don't like it." Who are these people?

"He doesn't show respect on the ice." What does he do, exactly?

"He mouthes off a lot." What does he say?

Nobody will have answers to these questions because there are none. Sure, some fans will hate him for a legitimate reason like Rangers fans and the slew foot. Others will grasp onto anything they can because they feel they should hate him but aren't quite sure why, like Pens fans believing he intentionally sliced Staal's tendon.

It just is what it is now. People who don't even hate him now will one day see him play and just feel the urge to hate him because he checked their favorite player, or got a slashing penalty. They'll laugh when he turns over the puck because they can then assure themselves he's overrated. They'll yell "shut up!" whenever they see him talking to a star on the ice.

All because a senile old xenophobe and a good ol' Canadian head hunter were given their soapboxes and the media ran with it.

Houde : "Le jeune Vèbère", Brunet : "le défenseur Véber", Houde : "le jeune défenseur suisse", while every single other player gets his name without an adjective to preceede, and the Caps Fans constantly yawning just behind the players' bench, had me .
