Man, the CBC commentators are the hugest Canucks homers out there. Justin Williams drew a penalty to which they thought he dove and called him out on it. A minute later Kesler took a dive and they called it "a great play to fall down".
Kings East and Flyers West have been doing just fine
So, a little late with this, but during the last Caps game I saw something that made me convinced they won't be coming near a Cup this year; in the 1st period, Marchand took a shot on Holtby. Holtby fumbled with the rebound a little, and Marchand skated up to him and used his stick to try and knock the puck loose. Whistle blows, and OV skates up the scene. I think "Oh man, OV is gonna kick some big-nosed ass for harassing his goalie!" Instead, he skates right on by without even glancing at Marchand. Brouwer eventually came in and gave Marchand the most half-hearted of token shoves.
With that sort of attitude and lack of intensity I doubt the Caps go far. That's not what upsets and Cinderella stories are made of.
