It looks like Green remembered that he needs to shoot late in games down a goal, being fed the biscuit from the teams best passer.

He seemed to slide a little bit to his left before shooting IIRC. Even little back and forth moves by D far away make the goalie react. It will never work if you never try.

My lord the NHL.com goal videos are horrible quality. I just tried watch to see if Green changed his angle or puck location before shooting... not happening

Wouldn't mind seeing Steve Ott centering our third line next season. Wondering how he and Ribeiro got along in Dallas.

Hopefully MP is superstitious and does his convulsions after every win, very funny and infectious.

The proponents of "tanking" are annoying because its borderline trolling. I know they're not dumb and realize a team with Ovi (especially the way he is playing right now), Nicky, Ribs, Brouwer, Laich and Green are going to win some games down this stretch. So why pretend to be pissed if they win? Why pretend to be horrified that this team will end up being 9th in the conference? If you seriously think this team is capable of losing a butt load of games down the stretch here then you haven't been paying attention to this team. I don't know what else to say.

What concerns me about this team as far as pushing into the playoffs is our abysmal record against good teams. We seem to clean up on the bad teams, and suck against the good teams. That's going to be kind of rough come post season.

Don't understate it. We have 1 win against a good team.

Should we be happy that they're going to end up in the worst possible standings position?

Anybody that thinks this team is going to end up in 9th place should look at the standings, or remaining schedule, the strength of the roster, and even consider watching a game or two. The Capitals will make the playoffs. This isn't even in question at this point.

Remaining schedule:

@PHI
@CAR
NYI
@FLA
TBL
@MTL
CAR
TBL
TML
@OTT
@MTL
WPG
OTT
BOS

Or, as I expect:
L
?
L
W
W
L
?
W
L
L
L
?
L
L


How can anyone think they've got an easy chance to make it? This team has yet to demonstrate that it can beat good teams, or even middling-bad teams, outside of the division.

Their big hope is that it looks like NYR and CAR won't win another game, but...

BCF said it best... We've beaten one good team.

And... I guess if you think this is a good team... Maybe you don't remember how the team played before last season, or you just weren't a fan back then.

Stop with your reasonable analysis. Playoffs aren't even a question.

Having PRO in the line up is like visiting your relatives, you don't mind it but don't make it a daily occurrence.

Being pissed that this team isnt playing well and repeatedly asking for this team to tank are two different things.

Absolutely. We are way overdue for a backlash against tankers. Glad to see it finally getting started.

For the majority of the season they've been closer to last place than a playoff spot so post-hoc criticism of proponents of selling off and thinking longer-term is pretty rich. Obviously that's not going to happen now but nonetheless they've played a lot of garbage hockey this season (less so lately but there's also a lot of equally crappy teams in the East).

Now the question is whether if they are a playoff team are they are contender? Even with Ovechkin back playing at a pretty high level I don't think so given their overall skill level up front, inexperience on D and the erratic play of Holtby. You hope for the best but any sort of expectations for this team are tough to make outside of them being thoroughly unpredictable.

Wins against the Jets an Sabres doesn't change the fact that this team sucks

Mad? No. Disappointed? Yep.

They aren't winning the Cup this year.
