So about Vokoun. I'm really impressed with how calm and cool he stays. I also loved how on that Michalek breakaway he followed him across on the deke and even moved towards him to take away more of the net.
I do not like letting teams hang around like this. It's one thing to do this against a team that is a cup favorite but the Sens are a team in transition. They are giving the effort and we are not.
I rather put the other team away too. I kind of figured after the Colorado beat down, the Sens would play a decent game. As for the Caps, I'm going to give this team another month before I start picking apart players etc. It is obvious though, we still need that stud shutdown defenseman. I am still giving Ovy some slack due to the traveling and emotions of losing a loved one. I figure he will catch fire soon. Defensively, I have given up that Ovy will ever do those kind of things ever. I am very happy Chimera came back to play. I was worried after seeing him hit the boards like that and rushing off. I love the 4-0 start.
Went form his best season to his worst. Need "dirty" "reckless" ovie back.
He did get pretty physical towards the end of this game.
It is just a matter of time before he heats up. I agree, I think he is playing pretty physical and he ran over Cowen later in the game. He seems to be trying some new tricks. What I think is funny is watching guys like Backstrom and even Semin stand up. Semin throwing his shoulder in the third period was hillarious. I like how Semin was unselfish and opted to pass on the Backstrom PP goal too. If that had been last year, he would have taken the shot on net.
