so far so good but third period so lets hope he keeps it up. our sense of urgency even with the lead should be stronger than it was in the second half of that period.

Toronto look like a completely different team on the road - everything is simplifed simple plays actually look routine.

Forsberg has something Ovechkin doesn't....heart. Forsberg literally played his leg off until he couldn't play anymore. Relied on his strength/speed but also his hockey sense and hustle. I assumed a few years ago that Ovechkin would surpass Forsberg at some point but this is pathetic/hilarious.

Ya Kessel sucks.
Who cares if he has 2 assists, is a +3, backchecking and playing a good 200 foot game. He sucks because he sucks. Anyone who cant see that is clearly is the one who cant leave bias out and look at things rationally.

So as I mentioned in the previous thread my younger brother is attending the game tonight (with his pup lol) and while entering the gate he was offered one of this Niklas Backstrom bobbleheads (gnomes as Bowen was talking about earlier in the broadcast) and he thankfully declined (while wearing a leafs hat lol dumbass Caps event staff).

True fan right there. Eff the Caps.

He had one effective backcheck in two periods and people are drooling over it, proof positive that he plays good defense. I mean, how much can you lower the bar in order to ballwash the guy?

What defence - his line look like they are killing a penalty every shift

Its great that he backchecks once every 3 games - really it is - but you cheerleaders don't need to hype it up any more than I need to hype up a missed pass or bad line change.

Toronto really hasn't looked very good. Scrivens is shaky and the team hasn't generated a lot of scoring chances. It's mostly that Washington looks absolutely horrible.

I've had that feeling for almost every leafs game. More of an expectation after a while

Kessel has 2 assists on goals he had nothing to do with. He is +3 on three goals he had nothing to do with. Playing a 200 foot game...do you not watch what he's doing when the puck is in his own zone and Bozak and JVR are trying to retrieve the puck? One of these days I'm actually going to have to make a post-game video of all of Kessel's flyby's and spectator shifts in a period.

Backstrom wouldn't be that great of a centre to Kessel in terms of how much it would take to get him and Caps lack centres so they wouldn't trade him.

Kessel needs a good 2-way centre playing with him who's not afraid of the physical game, can win the puck, and make a good pass *cough* ROR *cough*.
