Pretty sure I dented my wall after that. If you simply cover that Holtby, we win. How hard can that ****ing be?! Give them the win, I have no hope after watching that **** all night. Don't even deserve OT.
The thing is that Dale has done a lot of good, but his F'ing conservatism is just lethal at times. The last 3 minutes we turned the forcheck off. Just stopped. A couple forechecking sequences and there are no 6 seconds left. How did having 15 second shifts work for us Dale???? I'm flabbergasted.
Geez, you Semin-bashers and "we should have scored on those odd-man rushes" people...
The game is played shift by shift. And, until Ward's absolutely inexcusable, undisciplined penalty with 22 SECONDS LEFT in a game the Caps were winning. If the Caps lose on the ensuing PP, this loss is all on Ward (whom I actually like). No coulda/shoulda about odd-man rushes. I'd lay partial blame on Holtby for an ill-advised attempt to cover the puck with so much traffic in front, but whatever. It's all Ward and his stupid, infuriating high-sticking call when the team was ahead by a goal, NYR had the goalie pulled, and we were only 22 SECONDS AWAY FROM WINNING.
Keep your stick down, you idiot! AAAAAH I love you for your Game 7 goal but I hate you so much right now!!!
NYR are a crappy team of a GREAT goalie, a very good defence and a bunch of lousy shot blocking forwards. Makes me sick that the NYR are destined to win the Cup. Why can't you guys put these clowns down.
