That's fantastic.

I always found Caps fans to be classy, especially compared to Debbies fans. I went to the Verizon Center for one of the playoff games during our series against them last year and they were all pretty awesome people.

With all of the playoff series in recent history, it'll make for a pretty good division rivalry. Columbus will be something of a little brother team, whereas Carolina has the whole Staal thing going on.

Conversion time.

Congrats, dude!

with how poorly the team has played overall, that's not a bad position to be in (of course we are also close to dropping out of the 8). Would have loved to have seen what this team could have done with full preseason...

The pack is so tight. We also have fewer games played than most. I think only Boston has less. Which just shows how damn good Boston has been.

I was one of Boyle's first detractors (although not his biggest by any means). He played a great game today. There are games where he looks like a legitimate 3rd liner and this was one (only happened twice this year, the other came the night the Rangers signed Arnott). I hope he keeps it up.

Hopefully Boyle's first goal gets him going, similar to Hagelin's first. Would be really nice, actually.

One goal from the top line (Richards). Two from the 2nd line ("cally", stepan) and one from the 4th line (Boyle). You can't ask for more balanced scoring then that.

One goal from the buyout line. (Richards)

Two from the third line. (Callahan/Stepan)

One from the marginal/borderline NHL players line. (Boyle)

A little fight and grit goes a long way. Boyle was very visible today, maybe he needs to be scratched once in a while.

You have been obliged.

Also, I'm dying to see a Halpern/Powe goal. Those two really deserve to net one. Especially Halpern. The man kicks ass.

Agreed 100%

Also, I just watched Torts' post game and he really got me thinking. Imagine Hank was able to play the puck like Marty, I think it'd help soo much

It's insane how good and how bad this team can look in the same game.

If they can find consistency they can contend.

YES! Finally... Halpern has been solid all season and deserves more ice time.

As great as Hank is at saving the puck and he's great his Inability to play it at all on dump ins out lots of pressure on our D Men and hurts our transition game. Look at how hard it is to get sustained pressure against Fatso when we dump it in

Stepan's goal gave them much needed momentum and a boost of energy. That's where the praise for that goal needs to end however. He ruined an odd man rush and if you think that goal was anything but luck you are kidding yourself. Had that not gone in everyone would have been focusing on the fact he screwed up another odd man rush. That said, he's playing well overall and while I still feel he is overrated here on the boards, he's definitely a key component to this team's success right now.
