Simpler answer than that, even: he was 100% not going to play for us.

Pulling him in Tampa would have caused a uproar it was pretty early in the season. Neuvirth could have used some gametime and Vokoun has started the last 5 or 6 games, could use a rest.

85's been a total non-factor.

And why are they mocking the guy who's scored two goals against them? Mock Collins. I'd be okay with that.

Yeah because BB the genius decided to start Neuvy in the playoffs and refused to make a change even when it became clear that he couldn't stop a beachaball against TB.

Hard to fault either of the goalies too much IMO. Their breakouts have been terrible. Just terrible. Lacking in the requisite work ethic, support and awareness.

Combine that with a spotty (at best) forecheck and losing D zone one-on-one battles and this easily could have been a more pronounced blowout. They made it competitive for a while but they were pretty well outclassed from a possession, speed and forechecking standpoint.

You would think the Vancouver fans would want Ovie to score a hat trick, it would give them a reason to throw things, oh wait they don't need a reason.

Well I said 0-2 on this roadie prior to the Oiler game, and I was right. The sun shines on a dogs ass once in a while. Positive is maybe my luck will carry over to my Power Ball numbers. Guess I should check them now.

Is not calling up Orlov have to do with not wanting him to get a year towards UFA? Because after seeing Collins tonight it's probably not a question of talent

This team has no chance with BB behind the bench, with the talent we have this is simply embarrassing.

So much to moan about, but I'll just goat Collins and be on my way.

Orlon can't be worse than TFS reincarnate, if he ever sees NHL ice again BB should be terminated immediately.

That last period was a pretty good preview of what the playoffs are gonna be like for us with BB behind the bench.

Horrible game. By far, the worst game of the year for the Caps.
