Capitals to face Jonas Gustavsson in net for Toronto
1-1-1 in three career appearances against the Capitals with a .871 save percentage and 3.93 goals-against average
A little dose of this guy's poor goaltending is just what the Caps offense need to get on track.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
i like that lineup actually. put the $17M semivisible wingers with mehjo, hope the 3rd line rekindles its early season dominance in both ends.
I'm just not really convinced Eakin can produce as a second line winger yet. Since it looks like Bruce has relegated Knuble to the 4th line absent an injury, I guess they're going to have to trade for another top 6 guy at some point this season. I like the other 3 lines though I'd like to see more goals from the 4th line.
YES! Finally, lets try Backstrom and Ovie separated. I hope it lasts more than 2 shifts, I'd really like to see these two apart for a bit.
this is like the 3rd time weve seen it so far? and like the other 2 they'll be back together before the 3rd starts. unless the mirage of torontos horrible, depleted defense and backup goalie forces BB to resist his urge to put them back.
Whats your beef with Carlson and Alzner seperated with Green out of the lineup?
If they skate together, the 3rd pair would have to be two immobile defensemen together. Schultz and Erskine together would be smooth.
