Oh well.. They beat us pretty bad in the 3rd OT.. Thought those 4 defenseman were supposed to get tired? lol.. 2 OT PP's for the away team=pretty lame.. Plenty of chances to even it up and the refs swallowed the whistle, as usual.. Not surpised.. On to Saturday..
You guys played great tonight. We both had our share of posts/crossbars in this game. The series is so close that it could still go either way. And we were due to finally win a playoff OT game after losing the past 8.
Anyone else have a bad feeling this game is the turning point and our moral is shot now? Rangers might take this, because of this game
Nonsense. It's Game 3, not Game 5 or 6...it's still a 2-1 series deficit just like with Boston. Two days off to shake this one off. They had their chances, Brouwer and Ovie especially...nets yawning open and just plain missing....
"Brooks Laich says this was a great game, no reason for #Caps to hang heads. Lotta head hanging, it felt like."
Well, he could hang his head a little about not finishing the 3-on-1, but ... he is right. Nothing to be embarrassed sbout for either squad. Take tomorrow off, get back on the horse Friday, and go win a game on Saturday.
I think that PK was a full 2 in our zone?? Laich's clear... if you can call it that
Dale went tight in the final OT but we countered and got our fair share of chances.
Sarge looked fresh. The rest were gassed. Worse than the Rags I would say. Even before we sat back.
Again, they were gassed because they played extensively in their own end chasing the puck. You tnink 4 NY defenders are im better shape than 6 Caps? People are confusing our chances with the territorial dominance of NY. Even the Hendricks play was a great individual play, but otherwise we did almost nothing on the forecheck. Our attempts at zone exit and our rushes were very passive and solely up the boards, barely used the center because of intense fear of a turnover. We made things very easy for them by shrinking the ice. Completely blown game by Dale and mark my words we will look back at this game as our dagger when all is said and done.
I worked 12 hours before the game and watched for the last two of work I'm emotionally exhausted and physically exhausted, honestly it felt worse than when the first girl I ever loved and I parted ways. But I can't get mad at the boys that was a helluva effort. They fought like ****ing men till the end.
Honestly all of them, everyone knows how much I hate Aucoin and Schultz but hell they even played real hard and fought till the end. I was really drunk on the job at the end so I don't got much for a breakdown but ****
HENDY WAS A BEAST. ****ing rights boys that's an effort anyone can be proud of **** these ****wads saturday that's all /drunk rant
