Just back from the game. That has to be the most active I've seen the Caps in using their sticks. Numerous times they either blocked shots with them or deflected the shot attempts with them.

The kid Kundratek continues to impress, thought all 3 d pairs tonight played well. Holtby with a solid game but talk on the radio on the way home is that they think Neuvy will get the start tomorrow night in Philly.

Oh was Semin a healthy scratch for Carolina tonight?

Great game all around.
He had a bunch of really good passes.

But that line wasn't working quite well tonight. They were all dull.

I hope that all the "whoop whoopers" are pushing up the daisies by now. R.I.P.

Give it up, for the love of God just fn give it up and enjoy the Capitals victory. I really question if you are really a fan of this team.


Caps 5 and 2 in their last 7.

Of course you do. That's all you people ever do if anyone disagrees with you on anything related to the team. Fine to bash McPhee to high heaven and still be a "true fan" though.

We won, great, we won regular season games against hobbled teams before. I reserve the right to be unimpressed just like I reserve the right not to jump on the trade Ovechkin bandwagon any time we go on a three game losing streak like everyone else here does. This team isn't built to go all the way any more than they were a couple games back when everyone agreed with that.

If we can get back to .500 within the next ten games or so I'd be pretty impressed. Get Orlov and Laich back, make a deft move or two, hey, who knows?

Listening to Holtsy and Oats after the game, I'd have to think the radio was wrong.. (as long as the goalie coach & Holtby think he's feeling up to it)

Erskine's always loved jumping into the play. He's just not mobile enough to take chances he's not authorized to take. He doesn't really have the skills, but his eagerness sort of makes up for it. Good for him for scoring.

I can't imagine they'd go to Neuvy tomorrow night the way Holtby has been playing of late. Get a win tomorrow and rest up till Saturday.

Mind you this is Ben Raby and the other announcer just speculating on their post game show on 1500 AM here in D.C., regarding who'll be between the pipes tomorrow night.

He's also the only caps defenseman who really doesn't mind taking a massive slapper on goal from absolutely anywhere.

I think it's because he knows how limited his skills are and just says **** it I'm doing this. Which is really all you need.

I enjoyed the game. I was almost literally rofl when Holtby stopped Semin on the break away. I was just telling my friend who is a Carolina fan, watch for a Caps goal and then Carolina gets that chance. I'm glad it was a clean game and especially glad the Caps won. I agree with Kundratek impressing. This season is giving him some good experience for next season.

Just on visual appearance seemed like the Caps had simply more trust in the system/just rolling with it.

If Muller said that I don't see how it's Tracy's fault for reporting it.

Still, weird comparison is weird.

Listening to Scott Laughlin and Phil Esposito on XM on the drive home one day and they were talking about coming up with a Dave Mishkin alarm clock, with his screaming voice being the alarm "STAMKOS SCORES".
