No. I'm not. I've been wrong a number of times. Difference between you and me? I admit when I'm wrong.

Not even that. It's frustrating to see someone complain and hate even when they did right tonight. They didn't give up playing. There are needs for improvement but they did right tonight as well. Stop trying to get attention by harping on how bad they are.

Can you debate over Nash and Callahan tomorrow?

Flaws or not--we won and you have to build on the positives out of winning the game and there were positives. This was one of those bend but don't break wins and we got good performances from Boyle, Brassard, Moore and some unexpected sources like Asham---and a pwp goal and a goal from Stepan, Nash. These are just some things to build off.

Hagelin had a few turnovers, gave up on plays along the half boards, and missed a lot of passes due to having his stick off the ice. Wasn't happy with neither he or Callahan's effort (never thought I'd say that) for the majority of the game.
FWIW, I honestly didn't notice Hagelin that much. You may be right.

Can't blame him for that
You can if you are Jonathan.

No matter how many great saves Henrik makes, this guy only remembers and comments on the ones he lets in. Then he'll criticize you for saying anything bad about the rest of the team. Only Henrik can be dumped on in a win or loss!

The Caps own the puck because Torts' mind-numbing philosophy allows it. So I'm not going to give the Caps any credit for "dominating". They had the puck 4/5 of every game and don't do much with it.

I hate to say it but either a 1-2-2 trap or a 2-1-2 heavy forecheck would make quick work of Washington.

But no. Let's dump then collapse 5 guys below the circles.

Win Game 4.

Hagelin needs to take a game to get his legs back. He has been helpless out there without them.

Zuccarello? Lads, without him we don't win today. I know that goes for several players including Brassard, but that we got him essentially for free has been a big move for this team.

I have to say yes. Drew mentioned fortitude. Lack of backing down. They got pinned again yes. But a PP goal and 2 ES goals in the end period I believe shows they CAN do it.

Right, because Washington is going to control the puck completely, for the entire game. Neither penalty was necessary. I never said the team sucked. The first 40 minutes were very poor. I'm as excited about this win as anyone, but they need to be better.

No, you as usual try to be devils advocate to show that you were seeing something that everyone else didn't ...... I am happy we won but am not nieve enough to blindly see that we are playing desperate hockey and were beaten to pucks for a majority of the game, at some points we could not get out of our zone.

If your analysis is that we dominated because we got more penalties, then why watch the game, look at the box score.

Lol, funny story guys.

After the game, I'm leaving MSG, and there is Kreider and Gordie Clark. So obviously, I wanted an autograph. Went up, and no one had a sharpie. The pen that Gordie had didn't work. No autograph for me! Anyway, told Kreider that I hope he plays in the series, Gordie said he does too. Then, I asked if the MSG workers had a sharpie and they said that its policy that they don't give me one.
Did you hear that guys? Not only is Jimmy Dolan raising ticket prices, he also has a No Sharpie policy, lol.

Also, Eddie G snubbed me of an autograph. That was upsetting.

Oh, and in b4 Kershaw tells me that a CK autograph has negative value.

I still think bringing Zucc back was the best move they made. Gabby trade is certainly looking better however.

Caps are a very good team and well coached. Lundqvist matches Ovie, other wise I think we have the edge in personnel. But it's close...

get it done

We need to clobber one of their forwards coming over the blue line
That is something that no team should ignore. It makes the other team feel hunted, and it makes you feel good when you clobber them. You don't want to be stupid about it, but lock your vision on the body and slam the guy.

Actually it seems to me that most people saw that we played well today. A few vocal people do not see it.

So Ovechkin's line pinned us in the zone a few times. Guess what? That's going to happen. He's a SUPERSTAR player. When he's on his game, he can dominate at times. But the team didn't wilt or let him beat them.

Clearly they played horrible. You got me.

I think you may have forgotten the sarcasm smiley, though. You couldn't possibly be serious.
Wasn't only the Ovi line that kept us pinned in

I'm generally pretty positive. They weren't very good tonight. This is a place to talk about the game right?
