three penalties to 4 and one of the Avs penalties was too many men. Not to mention the bogus penalty that got called only on OV at the end when he was punched first.
OV definitely punched first on that play, then McLeod went after him, the refs dived on ovechkin to protect him, and brouwer then threw McLeod down
should have been coincidental with another 2 on brouwer, but end result would have still been a PP for the avs
just watched it again...the only possible way you could have consider the first punch to be thrown by McLeod was when he was trying to catch his balance and waiving his arms, almost looks like Ovechkin dived again as soon as McLeod started trying to hit back, I don't know how to make a gif but if you have GCL it's at 2:23 of the avs feed
Ovie is a joke of a player. Acting hurt, blatantly kicking the puck into the net, constantly whining at the refs and that awful defensive play.
I loved his kick, but I love top players who really bring the gamesmanship. It's why Luis Suarez is one of my favorite soccer players outside of the BuLi, and it's why that kick was hilarious. Especially with the way he tried to play it off, I could swear I heard him whistling inconspicuously as he did.
The Avs now are two wins away from last years total. And eleven points away. I think we might be better.
Nah...no one will acknowledge that while we beat scrub teams like Boston, TML, Penguins, Capitals, and Habs....those teams are all awful. Our strength of schedule is so easy...
Honeslty Caps fans...all you had to do was whine less than your captain...and you couldnt even do that. Give the Avs some credit...the team worked HARD tonight. The Caps have a hell of a PP and we somehow killed a 5-3.
Caps will be fine...Ovi will keep diving. Stop complaining and move on to the next game.
