Ovechkin has been playing better for the past ~10 games or so I dont know why some of you think its only been the last two games.

It's a damn site more obvious when he's on the score sheet.

Now I have to gear up and watch Kuznetsov own Sweden. Good day so far.

Too bad Florida and Winnipeg are both winning with not much time left. AND Colorado's winning again.

Green's coming back on Tuesday? O/U: 3.5 games till he gets injured again?
The team made it sound like later in the week was more likely.

Points in 6 of 6... 7 of 8. 9 of 11. 10 of 13. I'm tired of counting.

Whatever I'll take the W, but we need production outside of the top line.

* this the difference that ovechkin and semin scoring goals makes. they win.

* doesnt this game qualify for the win on talent, not on effort complaint?

yeah, you have to think if it were a lesser player, like Halpern, or a kid, like Orlov or MoJo, there would be a team-wide understanding that, 'We're gonna try to get this guy his third.' but in the last 2 games, DH certainly hasn't gone out of his way to give Ovie the chance at ENG.

at current rate of 2 goals per game, Ovie will have 106 goals by end of season.

Yes, biggest problem is the 2nd line is still weak, and Shultz still sucks.

It looks like Schultz will only get spot duty. He was in simply due to the 3 in 4. He's making way too much money for a #7 guy.

On a more positive note though, Hamrlik is starting to justify his signing

Caps looked fine. Not a great 2nd period, but countered with a great 3rd. First period was a toss up.

Happy anytime you can win on the road.

Caps are on a good roll. If they keep playing this way, they will win the division, and probably beat our the Atl Division winner. I think Boston will get the #1 seed though.

To take 6 pts on 3 in4 is very good sign.

Man Orlov...he's here to stay. It is pretty much obvious for any that have been watching his games at the NHL level. As I believe Langway said he won't being seeing AHL any time soon.

Great to see AO heating up and getting his confidence back.

Hopefully we can see sarge in another uniform too... then Orlov/Erskine can be our #7D, for now. (once Green is back)
