1st home game of the PO's and the boys should come out flying.

What I expect to happen is that the Capitals dominate the first peroiod and take a 2 or 3 goal lead and win going away 6-1.

Under Torts the Rangers have no balls. They have no desire and this mantra of "playing the right way" is a bunch of ********.

The Rangers since Torts has become coach have been a team more content with allowing the game to come to them as opposed to taking the game to the opponent.

Puck possession is not Torts game plan. Any game plan that requires a dump and chase style is NOT PUCK POSSESSION. If fact it's the polar opposite.

Rangers get trucked tonight and mail it in on Wednesday.

fricken pansies

That meant our offense was so inept that while we received top notch goaltending, our goalies were still outdueled on average (based on Sv%). Our PDO barely squeaked into the 1000:nds by the end of the season thanks to our hot finish, but with the level of goaltending Lundqvist can provide, we should be among the leaders in PDO every year.

Tl;dr: We have almost on average made the goalies we've faced look better than Lundqvist this year.

Hags-Step-Nash
Clowe/Boyle-Richards-Zucc
Clowe/Boyle-Brass-Cally
Pyatt-Powe-Dorsett

Cally isn't a big guy, but he adds physical play and defense to that line so I think it would be fine. As for Boyle he's best when he's not in the top six. You can still give his line minutes if they're playing well. It's not like line number matters, especially not with Torts. Remember he used to play Feds-Boyle-Prust 20 minutes a night (Damn i miss that line even if it was over played).

"The right way" seems to be: "Never lose the puck in the wrong area", which makes us the most predictable team in the entire NHL. We make the safest possible play 99 out of 100 times when we face any top 20 opponent.

This team claims to have balls because of it's work ethic and dedication to shot blocking, I say they lack balls since they seem petrified of doing something remotely creative and unexpected.

that's just sad.

and i still feel it's largely due to the system that Tortellini implemented.

I have tickets for game 4, so I'd really, REALLY like them not to be in a 3-0 hole for that one. So let's go boys!

Spot on, it ain't a GDT without Loffen. Lets go Rangers!

A good start and the first goal changes everything. Question is, do they have it in 'em?

Holtby states that "game 2 was pretty easy for me". If that doesn't get this team all riled up and knock the **** eating grins off of this Caps teams' faces for the next 4 games then there is no hope this post season. They have gotta come out looking to spill some blood tonight

They need to come out and play this game like it's game 7 of the SCF with everything on the line, because everything is on the line. Win, and carry momentum into game 4, and you have a chance to go back to washington with a best 2 out of 3. Lose, and the team mails it in wednesday night, and get swept by a washington team that dosen't deserve a sweep.

Hopefully they come out strong, but I don't buy it. To see them play the way they played when it's 0-0 in overtime, just shows that they've mailed it in for the year. Priorities seem to be in the wrong place with this team, and I hope they can turn it around, but I don't see it happening.

4-1 Washington. I'd love to be wrong.

I'll be rooting for the boys in Blue! I have a bad feeling it will be 3-2 Caps.

They will win this game and give us some hope. Only to crush it later.
