But the stats do suggest effectiveness, plus he's a very nice guy, plus his Boston goal is now in the pantheon of all-time best franchise moments.

I also like his camaraderie w/ 22. I saw the two of them laughing about something at start of overtime wed nite. Knuble said something that made 42 laugh. I'd love to know what he said.

Any fans whose team got a 2-0 PP advantage in OT of a playoff game on the road have no room to complain about officiating.

I'm not afraid of anyone offensively on the Rangers. It's pretty funny.
I have pause whenever I see #19 and #10 on the ice.

let them complain about the reffin'. it washes away the fact that mike green clean beat their best goalie in the league with an open look slap shot. two goals in that game were shots that should have been stopped.

their king let them down. its easier to blame the referees and the league. in what world does the nhl prefer the capitals in the scf's than the NEW YORK rangers?

I want to see more from Semin, if he can step his game up I think we can close it out in 6.

ward 4th in scoring

brouwer physical play and cup winning experience.

ok....there's vokoun....that was a bust

so, while we are lining up for our turn to kick him in the a$$, lets keep our eyes open.
His tweaks have always been fantastic...from Bellows and Tik through Fedorov, Huet, and now Ward and Brouwer. No one can dispute that.

His core on the other hand...

If Backstrom keeps playing like this, then you will definitely see more of Semin.

I remember watching Jagr/Lemieux play the Caps back in the day and thinking "oh, crap" everytime they got the puck on their sticks.

It's nice to have a player like Backstrom who probably has opposing teams fans ******** themselves every time he gets it.

The bottom line is the Caps were and are the better team. Lundqvist made at least 5 great saves today. Holtby made none. Same goes for game 3. The Rags scored on their only good chances the last 2 game. The Caps have probably scored on about 15% of theirs.

Caps will win the next 2 and take it in 6. They are a much better team as shown in every game except maybe game 2. Lets ****ing go Caps! Caps in 6!

yep that was a dive/embellishment and nobody in the booth dared to question supper captains antics, i can only imagine if Semin or Ovechkin would've done the same... Thank you MG for sticking it to them!

I doubt Callahan was trying to draw a penalty there, just playing the puck. Still not a penalty by any means.

Officiating was "sketchy" in both directions today. Knuble batted that puck out with his glove, should have been a penalty. Likewise, the missed high stick that should have sent the Rags to the box. There was also an obvious missed icing near the end. They were pretty accurate with the offsides, I'll given them that.

Well yeah, the Weber baseline was more of a tongue in cheek reference. Personally I'm still in shock that grabbing a players head and slamming it into the glass does not warrant a suspension but a wild but accidental crosscheck to the face earns Nick a game. Still I'm worried about what will happen to Ovechkin.

Can't decide who's more despondent over the Capitals win today, Ranger fans or the NBC broadcast crew. Geesh, can Doc, Pierre and Eddie be a little less bias please.

He meant to cross check him but he didn't go for the head, rather the target was the chest. Peverley blocked it then pushed it up resulting in the head shot. You're entitled to your opinion and I have provided my explanation so lets leave it at that.

on a positive note, winning the game seems to have kept them away from our stuff for a change

The chance to beat New York is simply revenge for providing most of the cast for Jersey Shore.

Caps looking good! Great win.

Green blasted the game winner and, what? Wideman made a great backhand flick pass to set up Green's game winner!

7 games. Caps, I believe, will win.

All Praise to Crazy Dale!

Im sorry but I am loling so hard right now at the Rangers fans.

They said that the hit on Girardi was a headshot

Am I delusional or are they?

It was a charge. 2 min penalty. That is it.

Right?
