This has easily been the worst series yet for Ovechkin at least in terms of points, right? What has contributed to this - poor play by him, lackluster line mates, NYR keying in on him more effectively than usual? What has changed from the end of the regular season when he was on fire?
That Joanette should be removed from playoff games?
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
He's incompetent? There...the elephant in the room has been identified. Feel better?
You're assuming what you're setting out to prove. You haven't explained to me why he's incompetent.
Based on how they were calling the game yesterday, what did they miss? Callahan should have went off with Hillen, but besides that I didn't see the Rangers get away with anything that the Capitals got called for.
I saw instances where both teams got away with holding the stick, tripping, and slashing the stick out of players hands. They let the teams play yesterday, except for blantant stuff like pucks over the glass, cross-checks to the face, and elbowing.
The croos check on Ward was absolutly awful.. I don't think peoiple are complaining the Capitals are getting bad calls made on them I think they are complaining that the Rangers are getting away with penaltys. It's a shame. Series should have been over already..
