I'm sure Milbury will use this chance to wax poetic.

Next four games including today (Rangers, Carolina b2b, Boston), going .500 at the end of these games will be unacceptable.

Team started out great, then slowed down. I like Fehr's move at the beginning of the game.

Uhhhhh he got caught in no man's land because he made a horrendous decision that anyone who understands anything about playing defense never never ever makes.

It was an awful clown shoes defensive play.

I think it's a no win for Ovi on that play. He makes the check and gets an interference call. He doesn't and we know what happens next.

Seriously or are you just funning? Holtby way overplays the puck all the time and I would think by this point every team that plays the Caps knows that.

He needed to approached it differently. Not line up for the hit (because you're right, Stepan moved and his only recourse would have been a knee or something) but try to break it up with his stick.

As it stands he obviously avoided a penalty, but he took himself out of the play as well.

Coming in piece. I have never seen a play like that from Ovie, he looks like as if he couldn't have given 4 flying **its about his team on that play. What has happened to him man? He needs to be motivated again I wish he was the guy from 5 years ago, truly a generational talent to watch. Here is one fan hoping he comes around sooner then later. Do you guys think that there is 0 chance your team attempts to move him or buy him out by the end of next year if nothing has changed? Hopefully he just regains form.

Followed by zero effort to try and recover.

He's a high-risk, high-reward player. He took the risk on a big hit, realized he didn't have the angle and didn't do something even stupider (stick out his knee). I don't want to give him too much crap for the instinct, though. The league has already neutered the hell out of him by penalizing every hit he makes, and the Caps have done the same by trying to keep him on a leash and become a player he's not. I don't want him to think out there. He's much more fun to watch (and productive) when he's instinctive.

Well, he wasn't going to get back in time to do anything about Stepan (who wouldn't have been his man anyways). That part is less of an issue unless he's late getting back to cover the point man. It never got that far.

Do you think that sequence of events would of occurred if Ovechkin did not let up on Stepan. Yeah Holtby played it badly, but Ovechkin for two games now has played it really bad. Some folks here don't want to admit it but with the pending NMC approaching in July 2014 we are at a crossroads with this guy. Now I know Leonsis will never let it happen because he's a business man first and a fan second, but as a Caps fan I think he's the chief culprit of the team's culture that many here complain about.

So much dumb on this team and very few players bother finishing checks.

It Ovi doesn't let up, he's taking 5 and a game for kneeing. Going for the hit in the first place was probably the wrong choice, but by the time he let up that was the right move.

This team is a cluster****.
Enjoy the 10th overall pick and roster full of overpaid players. Reminds me of 2002.

He should have banked sharply and skated back hard. He did his usual coasting back in the play. I think that is what is most irritating.

Yeah I get it. He needs to play instinctive, but playing high-risk, high-reward at the blue line in that exact situation is the worst kind of hockey a professional can play.

That type of leadership will never lead to a Cup.

Never.
