Lost in all the Mike Green whiff talk is that the pass wasn't even going to him in the first place.

Perreault looked so confused.

Come on, that was a dummy pass.

A dummy or feint is an association football (soccer), rugby league, rugby union and Australian rules football term used to refer to a particular player deceiving the opposition into believing he is going to pass, shoot or receive the ball and instead doing something entirely different, thus gaining an advantage.

I think you're right, Dima is very technical on skates when in top shape, but he'll never have a smooth Niedermayer stride.

You felt the need to define this why exactly?

I am not defending some of his plays, just this team looks worlds better when he is in the lineup.

He never missed games when this team was a contender. The past few years he has been hurt. When he isn't playing this team seems to get less shots and give up more goals.

I don't know where to find the exact stats, just using the eye test of not missing more than a couple games a year.

Cut and paste my friend. Some here may not follow other sports where the term and technique is used, i.e. soccer.

"It was pretty big hit. I think we both was feeling it."

I appreciate that Carrera doesn't correct 8's grammar or syntax (and that WaPo copy editors are on board). You can hear his voice when you read these quotes.

McNally was the best. Shame about the Examiner. Now it's just Kerstein.

I bet Caps lose this game and then blame it on being the second of a back-to-back

I heard on the Tony Kornheiser Show that the Washington Post as a rule does not change quotes for grammar and syntax anymore because of the information age and the possiblity of multiple places "cleaning up" a quote differently. He said that many media outlets adhere to that rule now.

It's probably gonna be reminiscent of our back to back against the Devils at home, with them being the caps and us being the Devils.

Playing 2x in a row at home against the same team generally means you'll go full retard in the second game in front of your fans. Them being full of caps killers doesn't help at all.

If the Caps win tonight, they are 5 pts out. Winnipeg has played an extra game.

I thought this was a lot more hopeless than that?

If they lose they're 9 out.

Everyone is alive in the East for now except Florida.

The relative suckage of the SE and underachieving teams in the EC (Philly, Rags etc) has somehow put the tank in jeapoardy.

Its really tough to understand how we can still be in striking distance still

Makes sense. Didn't know this.

Rooting for a Caps win and Islanders loss. What would be especially hilarious would be another, well, you know the word, it involves goalies playing very well.

AO w/ another PP goal, and 20 or 21 tallying too.

Existential question: with 20 & 21 on same line, when it comes time for the humorless, sanctimonious cliche about the importance of working hard, who gets to say it?

They take turns and then say the last part in unison. Then Brouwer retreats to the Fortress of Men.

For some reason, your scenario reminds me of the famous Statsny-Duchesne bang bang dance. Equally gay, and equally entertaining.

If Knuble were still on the squad, it would have been aesthetically pleasing to dress a 20-21-22 line. On the other hand, personality wise, it definitely would have been the Buzzkill Line.

Another good outing for Holtby tonight and I'm officially labeling him a "Jet killer".

That would be really disruptive to the tank.

Holtby is 11-10 on the season so "yes" to both.

The past 2 games I've seen Ribeiro start the game on PP1, but then later be replaced by MJ later on. Does anyone know why?

I hope Oates is just testing things out with a lead, but I don't know why he would since Ribeiro is playing great in that spot.
