Brouwer is a prefect fit for the first line in my opinion.

I don't know how they will look come playoff time but right now they are playing with the perfect blend of 2009 offense and 2010 defense.

Not sure if it's good or bad that they're making dominating the regular season look easier than ever.

Loved tonight's game. Nice to see Eakin get his first 2 NHL points and I would like to see him get some PK time. A very nice road win!

I think it's good because of the style of hockey they're playing. They look like there will be hardly any change in team style once the playoffs start.

Atleast they were in the offensive zone this game. Realistically though tonight he had solid board work, created some offense high compete level and didn't take any stupid penalties. Pretty solid I'd say

nice win

ovechkin stinks though. caps need to trade him while he still has value.

ovechkin for 2 first rounders or a 1st and a second would be the wisest thing this organization could do right now.

I thought he was ok. I just don't get why he does a toe drag virtually every possession, he did one against three defenders on the PP. He needs still simplify his game.

Per Luke DeCock, when asked about Pitkanen's pinch on the fourth goal, Maurice responded, "Horse'crap'," on live television. Awesome.

No, he didn't say crap.
