The Caps have been penalized more because they've done more stupid things. They've been the dumber team. Unfortunately, the Rangers haven't made them truly pay for their collective stupidity,

All the Rangers need to do is win a game 7 in a place we dont win.

They won tonight because of Hank. 1 goal is not enough. Having an abysmal PP is not good enough.

Rangers better win because I'm getting sick and tired of these Geico commercials with Backstrom.

Which is also why they can take the penalties. The Rangers don't may them pay for it.

Garden was pretty great today. Crowd was so into it all game long.

Not surprised Washington is complaining to the media about penalties. It's a tactic to get more calls in tomorrow's game. Hopefully it doesn't work but I'm expecting a lot of borderline calls.

Your bias though is usually against the Rangers.

I said it at the start of the series. The Caps are weak defensively, and play extremely undisciplined.
They're lucky the refs aren't calling the constant grabbing and hooking on Nash.

Keep taking the body, and throw off their offense. Take away where they excel, offense and the powerplay, and they're an extremely weak team.

Yea tomorrow is real long odds if I'm being honest.

Tough to win a series when you lose the special teams battle as badly as they have been.

I will always watch and believe. But realistically the odds are long.

@TedStarkey: Washington's last even-strength goal in regulation was Karl Alzner's shot in the third period of Game 4.

I can see why the Caps are complaining about lack of calls.

We'll be called for something in the first minute of the game.

It's not being a downer, I don't really think they will either. I said when they were down 0-2 that I could see this series going 7, with the Caps coming out on top. That'd be quite an accomplishment, winning in spite of the NHL and the "NYR mafia", lol.

i'm pretty sure their OT game winner was at even strength in Game 5

What a game! Garden was electric, really rocking and one of the best games I’ve been to in a while. HANK HANK HANK!!!!! Game 7 baby, likely, no, but ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!

Shoot The Puck chant was hilarious, whole Garden in unison sharing the brutally honest truth. Please tell me someone from here was behind that

Only bad thing: The PP. Showed some signs of life, but it’s killing this team...

So this. Most of them have no idea who Mike Ridley is.

My elation over this win has been overshadowed by my acceptance of tomorrow. I'm sensing the Normandy Invasion of hockey games.

It will not be fun, but a victory would be oh so sweet.

You have to hate the other team and want them p.o.'d and irritated. What a war this game 'should' be.

If the PP was even just AVERAGE this series could be over. I'd like the Rangers chances more at the very least.

How has this not been fixed? Bring in a damn PP coach or something
