Not to mention the benching was mainly brought on for one bad play. How has Wideman not been banished to the press box yet?

There is a 50% chance of a face off loss. The penalty was HUGE. One, we clear the puck without it. Two, they are 6-4. What a ridiculous statement. The series ahas been relatively even in face offs overall.

Joel Ward can go to hell. I don't give a **** if he scored the game 7 winner or not. He's been terrible all year and just cost us the series.

I wish the Bruins had just finished us off so we didn't regain hope and then lose it with this kinda **** they put on.

Thought it was about 44%-56% Caps prior to tonight's game. Adding a 60%+ face off guy is massive.

All I know is if DH is benching players on mistakes like that, doesn't that mean Ward will be a sit?

I thought things were different last year, when they started playing D under BB and crushed the Rags in the first round. I guess I didn't learn my lesson.

When is the Skins season opener?

Dialogue from house 10 minutes ago:

Me: "Ranting, cursing, loathing this team and the way they rip my heart out every spring and run it through a cheese grater, speculate on when to go to the casino to put money on the rangers, they finish us off in 6, or do they make it much more painful in a multi-OT heartbreaker game 7, the traditional means."

Girlfriend: So when can you stop being a fan of them. When can you change teams?

Me: You can't.

Girlfriend: Well, maybe you should just stop.

Me: Can't stop unless they move.

Girlfriend: Start a campaign for them to move somewhere else then.

Me: <laughing>

Haha.. ouch.

Well the Rangers deserves this one, so let's leave it at that. Counting on the Caps to bounce back and have a good game 6.

I'm not totally shocked, but 6.6 seconds left in the game is pretty choke and this could potentially be the worst playoff loss ever for the Caps. There is still another game left and we'll see if they respond. I'm mad at Ward, but I'm sure he feels like real crap. Who knows, he may score a hat trick next game.

Pissed at him, but Halpern starting over Aucoin would be more beneficial.

Ward and MoJo aren't even close to the issue that Shultz and Wideman are. Granted MoJo finishes a couple plays and it covers for 55/6 slightly.

How about all those odd man rushes in the third that were squandered including a 3 on 1 that didn't get a shot off? Huh, how about that?

Worse things is we would have most likely faced the Devils in the next round, who we could have handled. Not only do the hockey gods hate us, they enjoy torturing us as well...
