Caps aren't beating anyone in the playoffs.

I will put money on it, that if we play the Rangers, we will win.

Second loudest I've ever heard VC, behind the noise after Feds' game 7 winner.

People get weird in the playoffs. Anything can happen. If Holtby/Vokoun plays, they can knock off a couple teams.

The OV mini-documentary by ESPN wasn't bad, narrated by Lindsey Czarniak.

I think this is his most ridiculous playoff moment.



I mean, come on.

Watched that one a bunch of times too. Absolutely love it...he just flat-out humiliates those guys. Edit: I also always loved Fedorov's man-handling of Zherdev at the blueline to get the play started.

I was thinking about this while watching that and that regular-season goal against the Canadiens where he banked the puck off the boards and spun around: It's funny how you just know the puck is going in the net in those situations. In both of them, he ends up shooting from the ground or as he's diving, and the goalie is right there. They could easily be stopped, but when I saw him break those guys' ankles against the Rangers, I just absolutely knew the puck was about to go in the net no matter what happened. Insane moments.

Yeah, but... Pretty meaningless in the big picture.

I put OVY's 1st, Feds game 7, and Ovie's hattrick against the Pens before that one.

Perhaps if Lundqvist continues to struggle. If he plays like his non-March self, the Caps really don't have much of a chance.

I agree too. IF we make the playoffs we will beat whoever we play in the 1st round.

Not only is Ovechkin scoring but he is scoring the lethal goals we've seen him do in the past. He's skating better and getting far more chances than in the last year+

The biggest difference I see is that he isn't flubbing so often. I don't think his chances went way down, just that he flubbed, whiffed, lost, etc. so many of them. He's back to connecting on one timers and his wrist shot like he did two years ago.

Bank on this....NOBODY wants to play us as the 8. That's in our favor bigtime.



Underdog status + minimal expectations = dangerous

We are a .500 hockey team. Not sure what makes us dangerous. Ovi is dangerous, but this team? Nah. Nicky comes back and we get some consistent goaltending... maybe.

We're dangerous in the "The Defense Department regrets to inform you your sons are dead because they were stupid" way.

The Penguins should be praying for a matchup with the Caps. It's like a bye for them.

Pretty much they wouldn't get beat up physically much at all, if they play the Flyers? Different story

Something thats impressive about Ovechkins return to glory is its still with Dale Hunter putting out idiotic defense man.

We can say all we want about Wideman, but hes good at making the passes to start offense, the other guys just pass the puck to the other teams defense man at the red line.

PS Capitals are way physical with the Penguins, they should pray for it because Hunter is an idiot doesn't know Malkin has temper tantrums when you are rough with him, so the Caps would be a good way to get him going for the playoffs.

Is there any chance Backstrom will be back for playoffs?

Sounds like he's cleared to play now, just a matter of getting him in to game shape. As long as there's still a chance they make it I have to believe they'll get him in to a game (or more) before the season is done.
