Honestly, in the 1st, it looked like they were going to win 7-0. The 2008-2010 Capitals would have gotten the 3rd goal, the Habs would have likely gone quietly into the night and it would have been ugly. Instead, they did not get the killer goal and let us right back in it by sitting back.
They have ruined that team with this bizarre transformation to being a defensive team.
Actually, the 2008 Caps were choking leads plenty of times for the second half of the season.
With the back-to-back, I was really hoping for a regulation loss tonight, but whatchagonnado... Top3 pick, here we come !
I really wish RC would break the top line for the last couple of games ; give a little pick-me-up to either/both Pleky and Eller by playing them with Patch/Cole and give them a chance to play with real NHL wingers for a change. Plek looks sad
