  • "...it’s probably the best time to bring (Tokarski) him up. This was something that was a possibility at some point this year and I think the circumstances are giving him an opportunity at the best part of the year for him, where it matters in the NHL and at the same time the best moment in regards to his confidence."

  • "We’ve been playing good hockey lately, so we’re going to head into Washington with [Tuesday’s] game behind us and try to pick ourselves back up. We know where we’re at and we know what our situation is, but we’re not looking at the standings. We’re going to go to Washington worrying about Washington."




LET'S GO BOLTS!

On paper the Caps roster looks much better than ours do (except for their lack of C depth). Still doable! Let's go Bolts!

The hot/cold streak ratio is definitely in our favor: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/scores/gameday...=nhl-lightning

Maybe he can go behind the net and put his stick on the ice and pretend it is on fire or something. I don't think anyone has done a celebration like that before.

Double edged sword tonight:

If Roli starts tonight, we need him to play well in order to win and we really need this one. If he does though that probably means he starts again Saturday.

Solution: Start Tokarski.

For what it's worth, Dustin Tokarski was the first goalie off the ice, but both goalies were last two guys into the locker room

There are very few Caps fans left that think Ovi is still the best player in the world. If he had a 50 goal 100pt+ season this year, everyone could say last year's season was just a fluke, and he is still the best WINGER in the world, top 5 player, but since this year he is playing worse than last year with no signs of returning to his old form, he is still a GOOD player but no longer considered a great player, let alone best player in the world.

If you read some of the posts from a few years ago, no one would ever have considered trading Ovi, now, if the price is right, most Caps fans would say pull the trigger on the trade.

Anyways...I am just hoping for a good game tonight. Good luck to you Lightning Fans.

WoW! I didn't know Cap fans knew how to compose a complete sentence let alone read and write. You learn something new every day!


Just kidding Joe! I hear ya on Ovie. Great player but doesn't seem to be what he was. I think trading him at this point would be good for both him and the Caps. He can get a fresh start in a new place and the Caps can get some major assets and a new tone for their club.

Looking forward to the game tonight and seeing our new boy in net at some point soon. GO BOLTS!!

oh yeah, and...FIRST POST!

It's quite a difference in feeling coming into the last two games. Despite coming off a win, Ottawa still appeared daunting, and everything just seems to go the wrong way when the Lightning face them.

On the other hand, even though they're coming off a loss, Tampa always seems to match up well against the Caps. Considering the state of the roster, it's hard to get your hopes up too high, but I'll still be disappointed in a loss.


Amazing to think that Stamkos is coming into this with 48 goals, while Ovechkin has all of 49... points.

I don't know how you DON'T start Tic. Roloson has never inspired any confidence in this team. Don't put him in simply for his sake and some kind of non-existent chance that he'll get his game back. That move hurts the WHOLE team as they play like garbage in front of him.

Ha ha I didn't have my glasses on the first time I read this. I'm thinking Brothal? What is Stamkos doing in a Brothal and how is that going to help?

Thanks, I needed some humour today. May the best team win.

Another "fun" fact:

Roloson's last start allowing fewer than three goals came Nov. 17

Roloson hasn't inspired confidence in this team, for nearly the entirety of the season.

Yep, this kinda reminds me of when Boucher didn't want to say who's in net - Ellis or Desjardins - and then boom it was CD.

Clearly it's Tokarski. He doesn't want to announce it because this way it keeps the media off of him asking him questions about his feelings about getting his first NHL start.
