Colorado vs Calgary is about to start. Calgary is still a crazy place and I am turning down tickets to the game to stay in my hotel room and watch the Kings game on my computer. This weekend I have back to back games watching Vey vs Cal to end the season. Lost of travel left.
Columbus lost! one less team to worry about it looks like.
Chicago losing 3-0 to Dallas, Calgary up 3-1 on Colorado after 1 and Phoenix just took the lead on Edmonton.
Nashville tied with Boston, lets go BRUINS!!!
the caps have the best sniper in the game to boot making their d shell even more effective/ I live Bruce and am so happy for his successes. He was easily the most approachable person and would give you all the time you needed to answer his questions. With all the talk about our letting players walk, it was a mistake letting BB get away too.
It's just really weird watching the Capitals play defense.
The threat of losing his job woke BB up apparently. Losing Mike Green also helps their team defense by default.
Boudreau came off as a bumbling idiot on 24/7 but I applaud him for changing his game plan. The run-and-gun offense is fun to watch but it's too unreliable in the playoffs. They seem to be finding a nice balance between their high end skill players and the system necessary to win.
It'll be interesting to see if they can keep Semin and Green long term. Semin is inconsistent and a pending UFA but I think they'd be better off moving Green. Carlson/Alzner should be their #1 pair for a long time and Carlson should be their workhorse going forward. I don't think you can afford to pay a #3 d-man a boatload (assuming he wants more than the 5.25 million/year he's getting now) that's a huge liability.
