Although, he's just below his career pace of about 1.2 shots per game. lol Nevermind. The guy just isn't a shooter.

His +/- is nearly higher than his season shot total. I know the guy's a playmaker but, does anyone know if he has some kind of aversion to actually shooting? Goodness. Ovie can't be the only player pullin' the trigger on that line.
Welcome to us every playoffs.

Crosby -3, Laich -3. No no no, Ovechkin is terrible defensively according to CBC.

Of course it matters. Score should be set worst 1-1, if the defense didn't continually leave the G out to dry. And don't even get started on Laich and Erat being -3's after one period.

Other than Ovechkin, Holtby is the least of this teams problems, but because you need to show your hard on for Neuvirth every day, you find anything you can to attack Holtby.

Are you saying Ovi isn't terrible defensively? Or are you just saying they should have spent airtime talking about Laich rather than a league superstar on a national broadcast?

Yeah the caps have too many playmakers and non-shooters. D sucks as well. I can't believe the team is this high in the standings.

yeah Volpatti scores. Is it my imagination or have we started to do better since Volpatti has been playing?

Fanned on it I think and it almost caused Ramo to pull his groin.

Brooks Laich must of said some good stuff in the locker room during the 1st intermission.
-Something someone on CBC probably will say.
