It's like they didn't want to pay for the expensive tape.
Ahh well, only down one....not playing good, not tanking. I guess that's a win. I can see a comeback lurking...
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.
They are busting their ***** out there. Ovi looks like he's going full bore. He's even making moves he hasn't in a few years. Banking the puck off the board and grabbing it. Too bad he lost the puck after that.
On the flip side, they are still doing some stupid things. And this will probably take a while for the team to let go of. When you keep playing that way for years, a coach can't come in and quickly replace it in a day.
If I were coaching I would be all ra ra in there right now. "ya know what guys, we made some boneheaded plays and some great plays, but we're only down a goal at home against a **** team. Look at the talent in this room. Go win this thing. "
