This is as good of an indicator of just how bipolar this team is and how frustrating it is.

great plays followed by complete boneheaded ones.

Neuvy honestly looks like he has no clue what's going on.

And Ovi is playing out of his mind.

What is the allure of The Hammer? It is clear Father Time has hitched a ride on his back.

Which top the one who signed Hamrlik and extended Schultz and Poti?

Ovi has less then 2 minutes on the powerplay? I just got back so I don't know if this is true...

So whats going on is the box score wrong or is Boudreau being stupid again?

Different page? These guys aren't in the same book. sheesh. The bad teams we had at least brought the effort. Effort is a sometimes thing as of late and there is no excuse for that.

Stranger things have happened. They had a PP and didn't even try to score on it. That's embarrassing. Have some pride, at least.

Nothing like the grinders out for our PP to kill more game time.....not even getting a sniff of a chance.

Goes back farther than that. Mirinov, Luc-Pierre, Kiwi, etc. The defensive signings by GMGM is pathetic and I have no faith he'll fix it.

Heart and desire are needed in times of adversity....something we seem to be lacking when it counts. Oh well next game...

I am very frustrated. This is getting to the point where I may just dvr the game, check the score, check the game day thread and then watch if it's not too horrible.

We'd won two straight before this. That seems a bit extreme.

Neuvirth is awful. He can't make a stop when it matters. I have no doubt in my mind we would've won this game if he didn't let that Sharmin soft goal in to make it 4-2. He looks lost out there. If he can't handle being a backup, trade him because his play doesn't even warrant him being on the team right now.

But I thought Ovechkin played very well tonight, and hopefully it carries into tomorrow. BB still needs to be fired though. You know you're a horrible coach when you try to implement a defensive system and your team still gets scored on at least 3 times a game, all while taking most of the offensive game away (hard rim every time). He needs to go, and no matter how well this team plays, they won't get anywhere in the playoffs because Boudreau's system is horrible, he can't motivate the team to play well twice a week, let alone every game, he makes some very questionable decisions, and he fails to make adjustments (although I did like that he put OV on the point, Laich just isn't very good there)

Looks like Wideman and Hamrlik were benched right after Richards' goal. Each had only 2 shifts in the 3rd period.

It's not like they played well in those two straight. Pretty lucky to hang on against Phoenix and the Winnipeg game was sloppy.

Ranger fan here, great game. I'm a closet Caps fan every once in a while (I'm Russian and Ovi is one of my fav. players) despite our recent playoff meetings. I really think you guys need to fire BB. WHY hasn't it happened already? cmon, is your GM blind?
I remember in 09-10, when you guys had the run n gun system, you were by far the most feared team in the league. Yes, you lost to MTL in the POs, but honestly, that was a testament to how well Halak played. Not a reason to drastically change the system in a way that EXTREMELY underutilizes OVs ability.
Good luck (until you guys play us again of course)
