I'm sure its a complete coincidence that the its beneficial to Rags with their injury problems that the series starts Thursday even though there is nothing preventing a Tuesday start.

Five G6/7 back-to-back scenarios altogether. Bang up job, NHL.
Gotta finish 'em off in 5 or 6 then.

Got to think a game seven at verizion plays into the caps favor.

Last year they got us at home.

We got them the time before with feds at verizion.

It can be done. Would take any advantage possible even if the team has let us down before.

The Caps could use the week to get Ward back. If anything it benefits them. Clowe is playing and Staal is likely out regardless.

I thought Staal was back regardless?

If the Caps can win in 5, it will be a huge advantage going into the 2nd round. If this series goes to 6 or 7, either team will likely be too damaged to do much thereafter.

I plan on Staal being back, especially after this ridonkulously long lull.

I wish that Saturday game was a night game. I just hate the 12:30 starts for many reasons.

Is it too late to Tank?

Caps in 6.

Not having a full geared Staal will hurt their trap and collapse style.

Thank the heavens for taking away Wideman/Schultz. What Hunter saw in that disastrous pairing, outside of terrible defense and skating, I will never know.

More Oleksy love:

The physical presence he brings to the game and the grit has been huge because now we’ve got a couple guys back there that, you know what, we’re a little bit more formidable back there,” Oates said. “With a couple injuries, he’s got a chance to play and he hasn’t lost his spot.”

I thought I came across that too in one of the links on Japers Rink. Not sure tho.

I think it would be amazing to see him. Big, tough, physical presence? Yeah I think that we could fit him in the bottom six.

It would be nice to see Wilson come in later in that series and keep up the heat on the Rangers Dmen. Beat them like a rented mule.

Hey guys, just wanted to stop buy and wish you guys luck. I'm glad Ovie is back, the league is boring without him producing, just sucks to be facing him.

Thursday the Rangers might get the chance to get Dorsett, Clowe and Staal all back. Its going to be a hard fought series.

Good luck fellas.

Love how all year long we hear how the Caps aren't very good 'cuz all they do is beat up on the Southeast, but then in the last week of the season the Rangers take 2 of 3 from the 2 Southeast bottom feeders (and only 1 of those wins in regulation) and suddenly that proves that they're a solid team getting hot at the right time.

Did anyone look at Lundquist's stas in those games. In the 3-2 loss to Florida (how do you lose the KittyCats with the playoffs on the line), Lundquist faced 17 shots and made 15 saves for an .867 save percentage. In the 4-3 win over the 'Canes, Lundquist saw 21 shots and made 18 saves for an .857 save percentage.

So with a playoff berth on the line, their vaunted goalie checks in with an .860 save percentage against non-playoff teams that Ranger fans consider to be jokes. Impressive.

We already know that. That’s why NHL delayed the schedule to Thursday, to wait for these guys to get back.

Everybody likes the rangers (except us)

Lets take a look at the D corp matchups in this series:

Alzner/Green
Erskine/Carlson
Hillen/Oleksy

Girardi/Del Zotto
Strahlman/McDonaugh (sp? My spelling b turble)
(two guys who won't play b/c Torts forgot that his team has a 3rd pairing)


Green>>>Del Zotto
Alzner<Girardi
Carlson=McDonaugh
Erskine>Strahlman
Our 3rd pairng>>>(two guys who won't play)

So...despite our D being much maligned I think, on paper at least, we have an advantage on the back end.

Obviously the health of Staal is a big X factor. The guy still has vision impairment so even if he played could be a liability. But if he is back to form then the edge would probably go to the Rags overall.

Their goalie is the deal but our D-men can score more.
With the new more offensive system and home court I think we can win in 6. When we played more D last year was a disaster.

Exactly. She re-tweeted instead of doing the leg work on her own and getting it right. Good job Katie.

WTF with the schedule? NBA rubbing off on the NHL?

Also, very glad Prust is not on the Rags team this year. Prust is always a true thorn in the Caps side. That leaves only Boyle in the true doosh category. Or am I missing someone?

Caps in 2. Holtby with an Ovechtrick and Ovi with a 3 shutouts. [/too much sarcasm]
I think Caps in 6, Erat with OTGWG.

Good work Rouse

Who can we plan on pounding, of their lot. Strawman is the smallest of the lot. He will get bumped with Stahl in the lineup, which I think will happen. I bet we play nice to Stahl, maybe even a league directive.

Hammer is the oldest. We can try to beat him wide with speed of course

Eminger heh, he owes us for supporting him all those years.
