Going to this game. I'm really hoping that the Capitals decide not to wake up from their early season futility.They'll be motivated to get out of this slump they're in. We can't take them lightly. Hopefully we can build on the momentum gained on last night's thrilling win and keep our foot on the gas though.

What are you talking about, Ovie always plays well against Dion.

Sitting in the Platinum's for the 1st time since the '99 Playoffs. Curious to see how big a difference there is in atmosphere from my normal Purples.

I prefer Crabb over our 4th line right now. Also, Tim Brent.

How many fourth liners can brag they played the opposite wing of two of the most elite wingers of the past 5 years?

Best way to break out of a scoring slump is play the Leafs.

Thought Neuf on Ovie was a hard fought battle before? Neuf will be a beast on Ovie under Carylyle's true defensive system. Caps are going to get creamed.

Not sure if you're counting McClement because he's further up the lineup, but he's a ****ing boss. He can play on my 4th line any day.

Caps have been pretty abysmal this year. This is a team for the taking, hopefully the Leafs don't mess it up (but of course, it's the Leafs..).

Looking forward to more solid goaltending from Reimer and hopefully Kessel can pot a goal. Does anybody know how many goals he's scored since Carlyle came?

I hate these teams. You know the teams that can't win, all of sudden they play the leafs and they are off to Stanly Cup finals.

Everyone brings their A game against Leafs and I expect no less from Ovi.

Why do I have a bad feeling about tomorrow?

Yikes....

I'll excuse last year, because let's be honest, the whole team sucked monkey balls in that final stretch at the end of year. You can't just forget 4 years of crap coaching and flip the switch to learn a different system right away, that **** takes time. I hope we see him on the scoreboard soon though, we can't have Kadri and Grabovski carrying our offense forever.

Kessel will score 0 goals until the first time we play Ottawa where he will break Sittler's record...

And Gretzky's...

By scoring 50 goals in 1 game.

I think this will be Kessel's breakout game . . . the Caps defence is in disarray for whatever reason. The Leafs with a day's rest will stick to their good defensive system and keep them to a goal or two, I think.

I don't have a bad feeling at all about this game, quite the opposite . . . but it's been a tough year so far to predict anything with regularity.

Good defence makes everything different . . . and the Leafers will play with real desperation for that first 10 minutes to get a lead, I know it. 0-3 at home is not sitting well, they will be super-pumped.

I smell a big win.

If we can keep ovie/backstrom off their game tomorrow, it should be an easy win for us. The caps are just not doing well this season, nobody on that team is even trying to step up and motivate.

He is a sen killer, and a hab killer so I wouldn't be surprised. Regardless Phaneuf can shutdown OV well, but OV has a good record against the Leafs if I recall. With carlyle it shouldn't be too much of a problem as he line matches constantly.
