At least the misery will end for 3 more months by the end of this week.

Yes, although i dont think we were in a major full-on turtle mode this time after we got the lead. I thought we played well with the lead. We just gave up a miracle last-gasp goal. Thats all. If anything, my complaint is with the way we played first 2 periods.

I dont blame ward. We shoulda been able to kill that last 22 seconds.

We did a poor job on our odd-man rushes tonite.

3 mistakes that cost the game....and I'm referring to the last minute and OT cos that's when you grab your sack and man up

1. Wardo with a terrible penalty....not blaming it all on him but that was a brutal penalty
2. Holtby and the 2nd time a premature lunge costs a goal...if he stays square to Richards, that never goes in
3. Face off losses in the last minute.....also referring to Aucoin getting a sweater over Halpern

You deserve better. Stupid Ward
Boyd Gordon used to be WSH's hedge against that sort of occasional stupidity. He likely would have won both the tying and winning goal faceoffs (not to mention top PK role) which were critical to both WSH GA tonight.

Gordon = Cup?

Maybe for Phoenix.

I should probably expound on the reason that I wasn't nearly as devastated as some were on this board after the Ward gaffe and subsequent absurdly bad fortune. I had zero confidence that this iteration of the Caps would come out in game 6 after a win and put their foot on the Rangers' proverbial neck and end the series. I figured it was going 7 before this debacle and I still do. Obviously not air-tight from a logic perspective, but it's the way I saw the thing unfolding. They'll win game 6, they'll take it back to the Garden and rip the hearts out of the Rangers again. I honestly believe that.

Btw, is there anyone that doesn't think that RG3 is going to have to have his leg amputated after his first preseason game with our city's luck? Promising Nats' season imperiled by myriad injuries, Arenas knee injury years ago and subsequent professional meltdown, Caps' history, Dudar's wonky hamstring (for my United fans), the Noel supposed last minute change of heart etc. Rough stuff.

Ah, the Gordon/Backes troll returns.

Halpern at $825K > Gordon at $1.325M

It wouldn't matter if the Caps had Gordon. Hunter wouldn't have played him anyway.

Same for me. I was 10 years old when we lost to the Rangers. Major reason I hate that team more than the Flyers and Pens. Yes, even the Pens. The Isles were a pain, but I never hated them as much as those other teams.

How many odd man rushes did we not score on? How many did we completely flub?

All I've got is that we shouldn't have won the game anyway. The issue isn't the last 3 minutes of the game. The issue is that we came out flat and to a man, played stupidly. We could have won this series already had we not played like idiots. But here we are. Wake up. And not just the players. Wideman, Aucoin and Johansson should not play when we return to Washington. The coaching staff needs to mix up the personnel and treat the power play as more than just an opportunity to bleed two minutes off the clock.

You just knew this might be the same old Caps when Backstrom hit that post. As soon as I started to feel good, boom goal.

That last PP with 11 min left was a farce

Ovechkin-Perrault-Laich
Chimera-Backstrom-Semin
Hendricks-Beagle-Brouwer
Ward-Halpern-Knuble

Alzner-Carlson
Hamrlik-Green
Schultz-Orlov

Based on merit, that should be the lineup for Wednesday. But it won't be.

Girardi hit on Green frame grab, drop box link: http://db.tt/H6UJW3WG

Clearly leaves his feet, distribution of the hit cause Green to hit his head on the ice.

Oye. The doom and gloom in this thread. :/

The Caps have been playing with their backs against the wall all year. They can take the next two. Pressure is on the Rangers now.

Not mad. At peace with whatever happens.
