The point is, the four officials on the ice didn't see it happen. None of them called the penalty initially. Not till 17 objected.

The confusion of the officials here is further indicated by the fact they sent the wrong player to the box. It was not Kundratek who cleared the puck.

Carlson improved his on "ice for goals against" number tonight.

Did they play "correctly"?

Hard to shake the penalty reputation once it's well established. Oh well - gave the PK some good work.

They dominated us ES in 1st, but i thought we had the advantage ES in 2nd. Quality of our scoring chances was certainly better than theirs in 2nd. As for 3rd, there was hardly any ES time to speak of.

I wouldn't describe the Capitals as 'lucky' in any respect in that game.

His salary isn't a burden for a team who isn't capped.

Stop with the mythology.
ovechkin is a superstar? hes a pretty good first liner...

and for a team with horrible ownership and management theres no way we win anything without spending to the cap

Both Chimera and Wolski benched again late in the game.

Unless he's hurt, I don't see any reason to not give Mojo a shot to redeem himself next game.

The sad part is if they could put together a small winning streak, say of three games, they could still be within reach of the division crown. That doesn't seem likely.

Dumbfounding how despite their benching, they seem to find their way back on to the same lines every practice and game. Chimera's benchings haven't affected his 1st line status

He's hurt. According to the WaPo, he hasn't skated this week.

But they'd need all four in front of them to choke for an extended period too.

It's extremely unlikely.

I guess there are just no other forwards to play, given Laich and Mojo are hurt. Otherwise, yeah, it's inexplicable.

At this point, call up Garrett Mitchell or Mattias Sjogren and see what they've got, if anything. Place Johansson retroactively on the IR and there's your roster spot.

Bellows and Joe Murphy were the two I can think of that helped in the past, but after that they have been pretty sad. James Black was able to get back into the NHL before he hurt himself. Indeed, he does like to dumpster dive.

Seriously though, worse case scenario they play good enough to finish 9th/10th in the East.

To be fair, it wasn't just Caps fans who thought the refs botched that game.

Nah man. Before this they had won 3 of 4 and they were still in 29th place.

Again, I just can't see this happening. This team is as mentally soft as they come. Couple that with poor top six forward balance, thin D, poor overall depth and inexperienced goaltending and you get garbage.

Even with all of OTT's injuries I think the current top ten in the East is pretty representative. There's just two points separating 10th from 11/12 but I think WPG, NYI, FLA, BUF & WSH are clearly the dregs of the Eastern Conference. It's just a matter of how poorly their habits will sink them among that bottom group.
