I was at the last game in Ottawa, Holtby was outstanding. In the 2nd period we were calling for him to be the 2nd star.
Yep, minus that terrible turnover that gave you your second goal. Holtby is either Holtbeast or Loltby, but that's to be expected with someone in his 1st full season as a #1. You guys pretty much dominated the last game so I'm hoping our guys can put up a better fight this time.
OT: Alex Semin out final two games with a concussion. In 44 GP, he had 13 G and 31 A for 44 PTS.
The next year or two will be telling for him. He got paid, now let's see how serious he stays.
This one worked out best for all parties IMO. Happy for him.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
