When an under-performing team loses to the Maple Leafs it normally is the last straw for their coach. Its like the Maple Leafs are the benchmark for suckiness

I thought Carlyle moved him back to RD because his skating sucks?

I'm pretty sure he'll be RD tonight, with Ovy playing on the left with Backstrom and Brouwer. Even the biggest Phaneuf haters can't possibly want Kostka, Komisarek, or Franson in that position against Ovy tonight instead.

"We dont' have anyone else better so Dion is the best option"
"Well how do we get better players?"
"No we can't trade him - he's the best we got"
"But you literally just said he's only good by default ... nevermind"

With Ovechkin doing nothing this is definitely a winnable game. Of course to be fair Kessel is mirroring Ovechkin in lack of accomplishments.

Funny that from game to game mostly just interested in seeing just how well this line of Frattin-Kadri-Komarov does. Been pretty effective so far.

I think this will be a tough game to win, sorry it has to be said. The leafs generally get really cocky after coming off a big win, they just beat Buffalo (a heated divisional rival), I can see them coming in think their ish don't stink against the Caps. Also Washington is a cornered animal with only one win on the season, dont you think there going to come out swinging against us? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we can't win, we can if we get out of our own way and just focus on treating them as an equal opponent.

LOL what?

If anything this team's problems stem from a lack of confidence, certainly not overconfidence.

This team has no business treating other teams like doormats, and the coaching staff and players know this.

Just like any game vs. any other team in this league... we have to play well and work hard to win.

Going to win this unless Reimer has a bad game. Hopefully no more nonsense with deciding between scrivens or reimer.

I actually kinda feel sorry for whoever starts that night because nobody on our team shows up to play against Boston.

It's not very fun to watch.

Amazing how the media is all going "poor Ovi, hows he supposed to produce playing with Joey Crabb" meanwhile Kessel did it for years without complaint.

So I'm sure this has been said so many times....

But how many goals does Crabb score tonight?

Meh. We went 4-2 against them the season before, with a couple of them being pretty decisive wins. They just got in our heads last year.
